My daughter put a big bag of toys and clothes to be given to Goodwill in my trunk. Parker is always right there when you open the trunk, so when I opened it he reached right in a grabbed this large stuffed thing with a rubber head called a Boobah (old kids show on PBS). Well he ran around for a while with it until it talked and said BooooooBaaaaah. He dropped it like a hot potato looked at it strangely and then ran away leaving it on the ground. Now if I could only get a garbage can that does that!
Maybe you should sit the Boobah on the garbage can?? LOL Amazing what will scare them when they are normally so fearless.
