The night before the circus, she called to ask which show we were going to. I let her know which one, and she said "Oh, good because I've arranged for the Beast to ride the elephant in the arena". Wowza!!!! What a treat!!
So, off we went and we had such an amazing time. They let the Beast, Number One, Pretty, and me ride the elephant right after intermission, and the Beast was announced as a special guest of the show. He was very proud. Sadly, they don't allow pictures or video in the circus, so our shots aren't so hot. I'm disappointed because this was an amazingly fun time.
The Beast was particularly fond of Alex the Clown. He followed that guy around the whole time, and apparently made friends with him. He was crushed to learn that we couldn't bring Alex home with us, but I think he'll get over it with minimal therapy.
