Mom and the girls took me to a new library today. I understand I have to stay with little sis but I was a tiny bit anxious at first. This library is in a big warehouse and there are hissing noises in the exposed heating and cooling pipes up in the ceiling. Mom could tell I needed to check it out a bit so we walked around the entire children's area before she asked me to sit. Pretty quickly I got used to the noises and settled politely when the girls used the catalog station and looked for books. We stayed for about 40 minutes. At one point little sis needed to use the restroom. I sniffed the hand dryer with my nose and it started blowing hot air! I jumped back and everyone laughed. Boy, did I feel silly, but I sure didn't sniff anything else in there after that!
On the way home, mom pulled into a Burger King restaurant. They have gluten free french fries and mom decided to treat the girls. This is my second trip to a real restaurant. I sat quietly as they placed their order and while the girls got their drink and ketchup. We chose a table and I parked right under mom's feet. She fed me treats and kibble while the girls ate their fries. There was only one other group in the restaurant at a tall bar table about three feet away. At one point mom felt me move and in a split second I had snarfed a piece of food from under their table. They were up so high that group didn't even notice, but mom signaled me back and made me drop the french fry. Geez, it was on the floor after all, but mom told me I cannot ever do that in a restaurant. Not that I'm allowed to do that at home either, but there I am asked to stay on my rug. So she asked me to park under her feet again and I laid my head on my feet for the rest of the snack. On the way out we stopped in the restroom. I wanted to get a drink from the toilet but mom told me no. I whined to let her know I really needed a drink after all that kibble so she brought me over to the sink. She was scooping water in her hand and I lapped it up, but it wasn't very satisfying. She then asked me to put my paws up on the edge of the sink and I got a nice big drink out of the faucet. Good skill for being out and about. She rinsed and wiped the sink with a paper towel before we left, just so you know. ;)
