It's official: we're going to be training Ace to pull a dog cart. Since today he proved his utility as an assistance dog. (He needed a little help getting the chair up the hills, but since he wasn't wearing a harness, just a collar, it seemed unfair to let him try.)
The Hartford NAMI walk was a success. the rain held off, and laps were walked, and turnout looked pretty good.
Ace got to wear a t-shirt, and he made a friend, Roxy:
(We were joking with Roxy's monkey that she was a teacup Scottish Deerhound. In this photo, you can really see why.)
Here's a gratuitous photo of a tortoise eating grass with great glee, since somebody brought one:
OM NOM NOM.
Also, if anybody was wondering what it looks like, here's the fountain that gets mentioned in Hammered.
