Zach's Papa, my dad, gave him this Dr. Seuss doggie when he was born. This stuffed dog is his most prized possession. He loves his doggie, so it would make sense that he would love real doggies as well, right?
When our family was visiting Grandpa and Grandma Snyder in Georgia, one of the activites we made a point to do was to take Zach to the zoo in Atlanta. He really liked it but was frustrated by the fact that he could not hold any of the animals like he wanted to. He did finally get to pet a goat. I was never too far away with the hand sanitizer.
Our little lion cub.
Today I took Zach to Parlee Farms in Tyngsboro, Mass. It's a great place to pick your own whatever fruit is in season (today it was blueberries). The farm also has lots of animals to pet and feed. Zach looks like he is upset but he is really laughing.
After trying to eat the food pellets himself, Zach finally gets the hang of feeding the goat.
The sheep weren't nearly as interesting as the goats, apparently.
It's the end of a busy morning and now it's nap time for Zach. With Doggie of course.
