Upon receipt of a compliment.
I met him as I walked Penne late this afternoon. He too was walking, but I cannot remember seeing him before.
We greeted each other and he stopped and said “your dog is one of the most beautiful dogs I have ever seen”. He continued “I have seen you walking many times, and have always admired your dog”.
We exchanged names. He is Michael, and so am I. He made a great fuss of Penne. She was delighted.
Of course I agreed with him. Penne walks with great verve - she strides forth with much energy, her tail always a-wagging.
I received his compliment with ne’er a blush. I am so happy when strangers admire Penne.
Evolution and G-d bought forth a gorgeous pooch, and I am blessed to have her as my house-mate and walking companion. The cats also like her.
