I honestly wouldn't have minded it so much if the gentleman didn't make it so obvious to his lack of personal space. He never talked to me, didn't even look at me, he was fixated on Phantom. And well, Phantom felt the strangeness of it all too, and chose to turn his head the opposite direction and fell asleep.
One of the neat things about Puppy Sitting is that you don't really know what is new to the puppy and what is not. So you just consider everything is new to the puppy and you spy the pup's reaction to get a clue. From the reactions of Phantom today, I'd say he's been around the world a few times to every location possible. Everything seemed like he had experienced it before.
Upon our return back to reality - we decided to hop on a plane and hit the sky to Santa Rosa, although his Puppy Raiser wasn't too thrilled with that text message and picture. We assured her it was all pretend and that we really were just in the same town and didn't go anywhere.
So Phantom opted to sit in the Control Tower and listen for incoming and outgoing flights that were really happening on that runway that we parked next to. It was really interesting. If there had been a flight to Canada, I bet I could have gotten Phantom's Puppy Raiser to meet us and the two would have caught the flight and been outta here in less than an hour. But no planes were flying North. Phantom was dreaming ...
We took the glass elevator back to the first floor to our car to take on our next adventure.
The Big City was calling our name. There is a favorite park that overlooks the water and the city. We were the only ones there and we enjoyed the quiet. My daughter is a hobby photographer and she enjoyed taking photos of Phantom. There are too many to post, but over time I am sure the good ones will make it on the blog. I am saving most of them first to show Phantom's Puppy Raiser. But here is a sneak peak.
