“Because of your smile, you make life more beautiful.” ~ Thich Nhat Hanh
When I first got Wally I took him to a dog park. He did great until two large dogs arrived. Then, he began to cower and he stayed that way until we left. That was over two years ago and I have assumed that he has a fear of large dogs ever since. Eric and Bree’s dog, Porthos, is a Great Pyrenees. When I took Wally with me last Saturday I assumed he would not have a good time because Porthos is just about big enough to saddle and trot a human around the yard at a full gallup. To my complete surprise Wally was actually snippy with the gentle giant. Porthos was, of course, cool as could be, completely unruffled by the little white thing barking at his ankles. Little wonder he’s a cool customer. He’s Bree and Eric’s dog, and I love him as much as I love them. Okay, maybe not quite as much, but I do love him.
