My canine buddy, Jack, and I were found sitting together alongside a frontage road. That makes us strays, I suppose, but I see friends everywhere I look—starting with our kind rescuer, who said that when we stayed overnight with her, we didn’t bark, were housetrained, and good with her dogs. (We happily jumped in her truck with her dog.) Here, our new friends have noticed that both Jack and I are friendly, sweet and calm. Jack is stronger and a little bigger; I’m somewhat shyer and gentler. Both of us like people just the way you are. Could you feel the same about us? In my tender way, I have a very trusting nature; if you’re good to me, I’ll return that kindness with my whole heart. Shall we give it a try?
