There was the balloon that Laurie had given Bow.
There was his new berber carpet mat. It looked just like the carpet in the living room.
And then there was the brand new pair of socks I got him.
However, late in the afternoon, all this novelty began to wear off, and Bow asked to go outside. I said okay, but I did not really think he would go through with it, because there was still snow. Lots of snow.
Bow surprised me. Without once touching the ground, he went out.
He admired the view. He sampled the snow on the horizontal support.
He turned this way and that, but he never once set foot on the ground.
And when he decided it was time to come back inside, he did so with one quick bound, landing safely indoors.
