Another post in my continuing “Days of Yore” series, catching up on long-overdue photos of Truman’s final days as a puppy-in-training….
June 27, 2008 — Disneyland with Da Brudder
Taking the dogs to Disneyland before turn-in day is a tradition. Twice now I’ve had the privilege of raising littermates with my friends Matt and Amy, so taking a dog and his brother is even more fun.
Tai and Truman did really well, considering it was pretty hot and crowded that day (I don’t even like going to the park under those conditions… being an annual passholder spoils a person). Amy was way pregnant at the time, so we took it easy, but we did go on plenty of rides — the Jungle Cruise is always a favorite. Everyone’s always impressed with how the dogs behave in the presence of “wild animals” and scary “gunshots.”
Before we even entered the park, Pluto found us. He was keenly interested in seeing Tai and Truman, who gave him a good sniff but weren’t particularly sure he was a dog. I think Truman was convinced once we got to Mickey’s house in Toon Town, though, because Pluto does have a pretty sweet dog bed, and he respects that.
Mickey was pretty cool, too.
