Life Learning...Dogs

Homeschooling for us looks different day to day.  Sometimes we stay close to home, reading, working on projects, or just playing.  Some days we head out exploring all of the great places that the world (or at least our little corner of it) has to offer: museums and art galleries, conservation areas and trails, historical sights and science centers.  Today, we were somewhere in between.

The business association in our little town hosted their first annual Dog Days, and the boys wanted to check it out.  There were displays by the local humane society and pet-related businesses, contests for the most doggy sit-ups, the longest tail, and the dog and owner who looked most alike.  Most importantly, there were a lot of dogs.

The boys spent a good part of the afternoon chatting with dog breeders, groomers, trainers, and owners.  They chatted about what kind of dog they would each like (when Mama and Daddy finally give in and add another pet to our brood).  Most of all, they pet and played with lots of furry friends.
