This afternoon I was nicely surprised by a visit from Sarah and Aurelia! They had just come from the movies; Aurelia was holding a helium-filled balloon. They had come to meet Nels. I was happy to see how he reacted to Aurelia - just as he did to Annika on our first meeting at the Humane Society: friendly. His tail was up, as if to say, "I'm so happy you're here!"
Nels was fascinated by the ribbon on Aurelia's balloon, and kept trying to get it. While holding it away, the balloon hit the popcorn ceiling and popped. Aurelia took it all in stride; Nels was still trying to get the ribbon.
Before leaving, Aurelia played a few tunes on the piano and Nels quickly joined her on the bench. Thank you for stopping by, Sarah and Aurelia!
