The morning started off loudly, with a yappy puppy in a crate. So we took him out and played with him for a bit, but he decided he wanted to investigate the cat who was walking by. Man, that could've been a disaster! But Orent did so well. We held him back so he wouldn't chase Robot the cat, and Robot just sat there and looked at him funny. Then they parted ways. All around, a good first meeting between a dog who was not on a leash and my furry cat!
After the Farmer's Market adventure, we took the lil dude to Fishtown to visit our friend Jaice, who was having a sidewalk sale of their stuff to have money to go to Portland and Georgia. I'd promised Jaice that they could meet Orent, and he was super. I also bought a really ridiculous hat that he hated to wear. I never got a photo of him in the hat. Next time...
It was so hot! Mostly Orent just sat on the sidewalk and panted. But he did meet some new people and new dogs. Nothing phases this puppy - even a dog barking at him! He did, however, manage to knock his water bowl all over and make a huge mess to play in. Everyone thought it was cute.
Finally, we went home. He was so sleepy! So I brushed his coat with the nifty zoom groom brush, and then cradled him. One minute, he was whiney and fussy and barking. The next, he was sound asleep in my arms - just like a toddler! It was the sweetest thing ever.
I think I just might just love this dog!
