Took the puppets in the little Brumby ute to pick up SS from school today, chucked in Aunty Tilly to keep them company & give them confidence.
They loved it. I could see Moo standing on the wheel arch trying to suck in the smells. Star took a bit longer to come around but got there in the end and they really loved it when all the kids passed by and made ooooing and arrrring noises over them.
Laughed when one kid told his mate they are small greyhounds, but SS proudly announced that they were Whippets, similar, but not the same. It's SS's first week at his new school and I think he made a few friends this arvo, mainly the girls who all waved as we drove off.
And don't worry about the puppies safety, hubby made a canopy, high enough for Gemma to stand up in out of weld mesh and a canvas cover has been put over the roof to keep the sun off them. They have carpet, a padded bed and a small crate to go in should they want to but they stood up noses to the wind, little Moo's tail was wagging all the way.
I think they preferred that to the new flash Pathfinder, for some reason that car makes them feel a bit sick. I know I can't even put my head down to read a road map for more than a couple of seconds, whereas the old ute I can read a novel in.
