A couple of weekends ago David and I took Elmer and Buford to town for a little socialization. We admit we've been a little lax about making sure to bring Elmer around other people and dogs, and we wanted to try to start early with Buford. We decided to take them into town to the Farmer's Market that's held every Saturday. There are always a lot of people and dogs there.
Elmer is learning to sit patiently while waiting to cross the street.
They decided to go up the steps of this pretty church.
Buford was a good boy. He's pretty young, so he just went right along with everything.
There were so many sights, sounds, and smells David took Elmer for a little "time out" to relax and watch everything.
I tried to get a good picture of them sitting together, but that was harder than I thought it'd be. Elmer, look over here Bub.
This was the best I could get.
On the way back we stopped by this flowerbed (on public property) to take a few pictures.
I think if we did this another few times Elmer will settle right in and relax a bit. They both did a great job though, and people loved them!
