No Good Deed Goes Unpunished

Here's a fun idea for you to try.  Well, maybe.

Joe decided to take Clifford on a wild adventure to work with him one day, with plans to delight the girls with sporadic text message photos of the big red dog's antics.


So, how did it go?
June's initial excitement and surprise...

..soon led to her realization that Clifford being at the office... IMG_1009
...meant that he was NOT AT HOME!!!

Cue hysteria. Inconsolable crying. Mayhem subdued only by drawing her feelings (with a little help from mom).

(I swear, if this "draw your feelings" stuff ends up one day being proven to be a bunch of hooey, I will have to laugh at myself accordingly, but sometimes shoving a pen and paper in their hands is the only thing that seems to bring them back to Earth.)

I guess all's well that ends well.
(Love the calming environment we've created here, shoved between two chairs?) : )

Hilarious! Poor June, but Clifford sure looks like he had a great day out!
