You make me smile, (or laugh.) The sweet, funny, loving things my dogs do, that bring a smile to my face, or a laugh to my lips.
Delilah, when you look to me for guidance on our walks, and someone in the neighborhood observes you, and says what a good dog you are…
You make me smile.
It happened yesterday. A few months back, I discovered that a neighbor down the street, is a man I worked with over 10 years ago.
We passed his house yesterday morning, and he was on his way out to pick up his paper. We exchanged good mornings, and when we did so, Delilah made to cross the street to say hello. I’m careful about letting the dogs approach folks, unless someone specifically asks. So, I redirected her, and my ex-co-worker asked how old she is. I told him she just turned 11, and then he commented on what a good dog she was, and how beautiful her coat was.
Considering some of the stories, (some right here on this blog) about Delilah. I couldn’t help but look down at her and grin.
I may have given her a cookie…or two….or three. And then I floated home.
