The difference in the kids' comfort level with dogs since last year's visit was unmistakable. They were so much more willing to touch and connect. I love that a dog can have such a positive effect. The girl that would barely talk last year was a chatterbox today and told me all about dogs and how to touch them and what colors they are.
She did end up telling me that she wanted to adopt a dachshund someday, though. Ha! Sorry, Phatman.
I'm so proud of our big bubba head. He settled right down for those kids and he even took a few excitable pinches in stride. What a Love Man.
