Yesterday, the girls got to have cousin Lauren over for the day -- much to Alfie's delight! Lauren's super sweet and really enjoys dogs. In fact, she shares an interest in dog training -- she's training her own dogs at home as part of a science project! Charissa showed her the new commands she's been teaching Alfie, and Lauren enjoyed practicing them with him. He did really well for her! They spent most of the afternoon just hanging out in the spring sunshine, laughing and talking and playing with the dog. What could be better?
