Our field trip landed right in the middle of this, and with it being a popular spot for school tours, and lots of people and kids there that day, Moray was pushed to his limit and really stretched in his ability to stay focused on me. But he proved himself well and did fantastic all day. The museum only opened last November, and one of the docents told me that Moray was the first service dog he has seen come through and that we set a very good example for all the rest. Yay! I don't think there's a higher compliment for a raiser and puppy in training than that.
The first thing that Moray saw was a mini aquarium. This was the first time he has seen fish tanks, and he was so interested, but still collected himself well.

There were TONS of school field trips there and lots of kids running around. I'm not a fan of doing these types of things because kids often try to get all over Moray without permission, but I was pleasantly surprised by their behavior and we only had a handful of drive-by pettings that we had to deal with.

Moray also got to learn about glass elevators, stopping frequently to look at exhibits while weaving through lots of people, playing dress-up, waiting (with my mom!) for me at the bottom of a huge slide, and even aquatinted himself with several dinosaurs!

|Heat sensor, anyone?|
There was also a huge section of the museum that was outside that we got to explore. Moray was a little distracted by some geese and ducks he saw, but did very well, and was so exhausted by the time we headed home!
