Najwa Draining Energy at Union Station’s Columbus Fountain

I was taking Najwa out for a ride to put her to sleep. And she was putting up a fight. I pulled out every trick in the book. Even sang a lullaby, since we were the only ones in the car. Even sic’d the binky on her, but to no avail. She just had too much energy. Maybe the snow gave her a second wind to fight off the sheep.

So, I had to drain whatever energy she had left. Though it was cold, we took a stroll through Columbus Fountain at Union Station. Plenty of room to run around, some steps to climb, enough city hustle and bustle to demand her attention.
