My parents unfortunately had to leave home to attend the funeral of one of our dear relatives.

It was a very long road trip for them, so when they got back they picked up Sparky from the kennel as soon as they could.

Sparky did OK riding home in the car, but when he hit the back yard he could barely contain himself and then ended up running around in mad circles.

Puppies are great cheerer-uppers.

Sparky doesn’t care that it’s ILLEGAL to ride in a driver’s lap.  (The vet’s office is about 2 blocks from my parents house.)

HOLY CRAP!  Gotta run gotta run gotta run!  Let me down let me down let me down!

Top speed, in circles, until he absolutely couldn’t run another step.  So excited!
