Precious

I just experienced one of the most precious encounters that I have ever had with one of my boys.

McCoy walks a street filled with shops, restaurants, etc, at least once if not twice a day. Over the last year, we encounter a man with his very old Lab, In fact, his guy just turned 19 yo. He can barely walk. We usually spend about 5 minutes or so just chatting. About his boy's health. the weather, whatever. McCoy just sits and tolerates it.

Today McCoy was lying down and the old guy came up and wanted to play! Seriously! He was pawing McCoy, tail wagging a mile a minute. I have never seen McCoy so sweet. He let this dog lick him and paw him and the whole time McCoy's nub was telling me how happy he was that they finally met. They sniffed, wagged, licked.

It WAS precious.

Awww... Its one of those moments when you say to yourself... You have a good dog.

McCoy is using his god given brain power / such a sweet story.
- John, you have every reason to be very proud of your boys wise-ness & balance
Get use to it / he will only continue to grow and amaze, over the coming years...enjoy the ride.

"enjoy the ride" LOL, Larry.... Its been pouring rain here. Both McCoy and I deal with it. My personal opinion is that there is no bad weather, just bad "weather gear".

So... 2 walks today in the drenching rain. No harm...No foul. But when it came to this evening for his 4-8 block "walk about", I refused.

Well., the bottom line is that instead of a 15 minute easy walk, I just spent a half hour on the floor with a 2 yo Doberman who thinks I am his chew toy! In all honesty, I love it. Maybe it will keep me young.

Speaking of being young, my wife, Nancy, ran the Chicago Marathon today on her 63rd birthday.

Woot!
