Dogs who don’t like dogs; and the people who love them
I’ve always loved taking my dogs with me to different places.
Unfortunately, two dogs in my adult lifetime have been fearful and reactive toward other dogs and situations. Because of that, we’ve gone to concerts on the lawn to find ourselves edging farther and farther from the stage to keep our dogs from getting too stimulated by others. Other times, we’ve had to pack up in shame after being unable to prevent Agatha from barking every time someone went off the diving board at a crowded swimming area.
And camping in the cold of late October? That came from trying to find a campsite far from other dogs. Yep, if you’re willing to shiver, you’ll find plenty of deserted tent sites.
And one dog who does like dogs; and the people who love her.
Today’s Tue Cute Tuesday pictures are Honey’s gift to me–a dog who can go anywhere (even BlogPaws) without overreacting to other dogs.
My hope for Honey, before she was even born, was that she would be a friendly ambassador that would allow me to bring visiting dogs into the house, whether lost pets (twice so far) or foster dogs (net yet).
I think my dreams have come true.
