Are You Excited to See Me?

I was walking Woody and Ruth this morning, and saw a neighbor who was walking his dog.

From about a block away, maybe two, the man’s dog spotted us. He was excited. He started jumping up and down, and spinning in circles. He was pulling on the lead, but his owner would not give in. He just stood there while his big giant brown poodle had a hootenanny.

As we got to within earshot of the pair, I said to my neighbor, “I’m a little disappointed. He can hardly contain his excitement, and you’re just standing there.”

He never hesitated. “Well, my dog is a year and a half old. He’s still a puppy. I am seventy-three. I’m just as excited as he is but it’s all on the inside.”

Good answer, sir. 😂

I always talk to my dogs as we walk. Its our chance to connect.
