When we go on our visit New York as a tourist walks, we take the dog.
The other day we were out, and a group of tourists passed us and exclaimed over Betty. They remarked to one another that they could have brought their dog on the trip. Her family looked skeptical.
The woman turned to me and said:
Your dog is so much better behaved than mine
It was then my turn to laugh, because Betty is so spoiled, and the least well behaved dog ever.
I’m grateful that my dog, and my daughter, can appear to have manners and be well behaved when out in the world.
I’m also grateful that they both have spirit and enthusiasm and can sometimes behave with not so reckless abandon!
