Since Erik works from home most days they take turns checking on him and keeping him company.
We were concerned that on 4th of July they would hide because of the fireworks, plus we were having out parents over. Instead they both sat front and center and let everyone ooh and ahh over them. Even begging for food. LOL. And the fireworks we were so worried about wasn't an issue. we found Dale slept through them and Chip watched the bigger ones through the window.
They are so wonderful!
