After driving for a little while, the fun really started. At Grandma and Grandpa's house, there were lots of people to visit. Bonnie put on her best cute puppy face, and Clyde did his best to lick everyone. Relatives who were surprised that Mom and Dad had chosen to keep pitbulls were instantly won over by their friendliness and their puppy Jedi mind tricks.
They even got to play with a really big dog. Because the larger dog is older, the puppies were introduced to the big dog in stages and not let off of their leashes until all three were relaxed, wagging their tails and playing. Then, a small, hyper, bouncy dog arrived. Bonnie and Clyde had lots of fun running around the living room playing with him, and he was totally excited to be able to play with them. By the time we left to go back home, the little girl had started warming up to the puppies. We were shocked when she asked to hold Bonnie's leash when we took the dogs outside. She announced that when she is bigger, she will tell the puppies to sit. On the way back home, she decided that she was a big girl so she could tell them to sit now. She then proceeded to tell them to sit all the way home.
It was a very good visit, and the puppies were completely exhausted when we got home. They were more mellow than we've ever seen them and there were no objections at all when we sent them to bed. The entire family and the neighbors were all completely impressed by how cute and sweet the puppies were. I think that overall, Bonnie and Clyde represented the pitbull breed very well on their first big outing. We were very very proud of them.
