Over the last year, my littlest has decided that the most fascinating creatures in the world are dogs.
He’ll run up to any dog, any size, to look it over and give it a pat. Of course it’s only on his terms, and if a dog, especially the big ones, take a step towards him, he’ll usually jump back to safety. The funny thing is, as soon as they turn and walk off, he’ll follow, and follow, and follow. . . until I notice he’s halfway down a sidewalk . . . following a dog home.
At a park, he’s pretty good about staying and playing with all the kids, unless a dog has walked through the park, and then I’ve got to keep a close eye on him, because he’s liable to just head off after it.
