|Bear & Lexi|
I let go of Lexi and turned my attention to Bear. Bear. My sweet, ten-year old black lab.
He’s a very polite dog. Rarely barks, never wastes effort on being energetic, and always defers or stands aside as if to say “you first” or “pardon me”. Because he’s so easy-going, he usually gets less attention than the more sanguine mammals in the house. You know ... the squeaky wheel rule ...
But this time, he was asking for my attention. And I very nearly put him off again.
