Tessa Visits the Jungle

Cute photo and story, Nikki. I love the little harness you have for her - with the puppy on her back.

Grandkids sure make wonderful subjects - especially when they're exposed to new things. #1503444

We took Tessa to the zoo - well, actually we went so I could take photos but we invited our daughter and Tessa to come along. Here she is in the jungle. That is clear plexiglass or safety glass and you can look through, up, and down into the very large jungle enclosure. Tessa was not at all sure about the glass. When we first got her out of her stroller so she could walk a bit, she was visibly scared as you can't see the glass and it looks open. This walkway is a full story up over the jungle floor. We touched the glass and held her while she did - very tentatively. Then she relaxed - but she still didn't want to get very close. And later in the aquarium where we were not elevated, she walked forward toward the glass very carefully and with her arms out in front of her like a zombie until she found the glass. Then she stepped back a bit and enjoyed.
