I thought this would be a great event to take the girls to so they could get a closer look at what our local community heroes do on a daily basis. Now that Sweet Girl is older, she has a lot of questions--good questions--to ask when we are out and about. Love Bug is an observer and mostly just takes everything in. Check out the fun we had!
Sweet Girl and Love Bug watched intently as Elephar was being cared for. Sweet Girl was happy that Elephar was going to be feeling better.
Sweet Girl brought "Elephar" as her friend to take to the clinic for a check-up. The lady pictured on the left checked out Elephar and asked if she had a hurt ear, leg, etc, and Sweet Girl would reply, "no, she doesn't" each time. Since Elephar had a "clean bill of health," she got a fancy blue ribbon to wear around her neck.
When we were eating lunch, Sweet Girl asked if I heard crying. I thought she meant someone's baby, but I didn't hear anything. She said Elephar was crying from the back of the stroller and that we had to take her back to the clinic for a check up. So, without Sweet Girl knowing, I told the new lady at the table that she had to find something wrong with Elephar. Turns out poor Elephar had a scratch on her front leg. ;) The lady at the table cut a piece of fabric to use as "pad" for the boo-boo and stitched a little bandage on Elephar's leg. She finished it off with a bright red bow.
The girls looked so cute sitting next to each other on the bench. I was standing on the bumper step watching the girls when Love Bug taps on the bench next to her for me to join them. Too cute!
There was also a canine demonstration outside. We didn't get to see the demonstration, but we got to hear the officer talk about working with the dog and answer questions. Did you know that the officers only use male German Shepherds and that the dogs are taught commands in English and German?
There was also a table selling treats such as cookies, mini pies and homemade jams and apple butter. The proceeds from the sales went to the squad. We ended up buying some cookies and a yummy jar of apple butter.
