Yesterday Small Dog and Chimp (the puppets) took a road trip over to Unity in Fort Lauderdale. There they came to life with the help of my partner Catherine and me. They told the youth services minister their story and now they have their first gig! The humans have some details to figure out, but soon Small Dog and Chimp will be delighting the children with their story What Small Dog Did.
When Small Dog and Chimp came out of the back seat of the car, the children and adults responded so positively to them. It was really cool to see everyone focusing in on the puppets, talking to them as if they were real (oh, that sounded so awful, of course they are real, they just need some encourgement from Catherine and I to get them talking).
