So a few weeks ago, I got a wonderful surprise birthday party. It included a dozen balloons. It also included 30 cupcakes, which you might imagine takes a lot of hands to carry. So I tied the balloons on Alice's harness to help carry them back to the car.
She was perfectly fine with them for about ten minutes, even posing for a number of pictures.
Then she decided that they were following her, for some reason. She flipped out and started tearing around in circles, trying to run away from them. Somehow we managed not to drop the cupcakes while trying to stop her and untie them.
Alice got a vanilla one as a reward.
