For the love of a dog…

Anna loves dogs. All dogs.

If you know me at all, you know that this is not a characteristic she picked up from me. No one else in our household really likes animals and for that, we know we are in the minority. We love people, but we don’t love animals.

But when Anna sees a one, be it a bird, a duck, a cat, or a dog, Anna bends over and starts talking to it as if she’s a mama talking to her baby. It’s the cutest thing ever!

Fortunately we have friends who have pets – they’re kind enough to let Anna get her animal-fix. She especially loves dogs.

We’re teaching her to ask owners before she pets a dog so that she won’t pet one that is not child-friendly… We’re trying to teach her that dogs are not horses, so she shouldn’t ride on their backs… We’re also trying to teach her that when a dog is napping, she should leave him be. That last one is not so easy for her!

Thanks, Thor, for being so gentle with my Anna, even when she’s not so gentle with you!
