Because she met a polar bear.
We were at the Allee's house to watch the BYU- UofU game and Eleanor got to meet Maverick. Maverick is their giant, fluffy, white, indoor dog. The sweetest and chillest (sp) dog I've met in a while. Eleanor was thrilled that this horse sized pet would let her touch him. She spent the rest of the evening crawling after him. Slightly bothered, he would just casually get up and mosey off out of her reach until she caught up with him again.
