... was they would notify security that we had dogs in the truck. If security felt that the dogs were in distress they would notify the office who would ask us to return to our vehicle. Pretty nice of them, really. After all that Jil didn't want to go into the museum. I was told it takes a minimum of 2 hours to do it justice.
