Zombie Puppies

The last two times we have dropped the weasels off at camp (Camp Bow Wow), they have had a ton of dogs -- 97 last week, 60 or so this week.

With that many dogs showing up to camp each day, the puppies come home absolutely zombified. They are so tired they can barely walk, and collapse in heaps on the floor as soon as they are inside. Berit fell asleep in the hall, looking like she'd just fallen down and been unable to move. Both of them were inert lumps until the next morning (and even then, a bit groggy). Camp is goooood.

I laughed about this to my coworker, who nodded and once again confirmed that puppies are not that different from kids: her daughter (4) has been moved up to the "big kids" room at daycare and by the time she comes home at the end of the day, she's done. Look at her crosseyed and she'll completely fall apart and cry, she's so tired. She's too tired to eat. t takes a lot of work to keep up with the big kids!
