You just call out my name,
and you know wherever I am
I’ll come running to see you again.
Winter, spring, summer, or fall,
all you got to do is call
and I’ll be there,
You’ve got a friend.
— Carole King
We met Huntley our granddog this spring when he was just 5 months old. One sunny morning we visited the dog park in Kansas City. Huntley made so many new friends!
Terrier fur. Spending the morning with this little bundle of goodwill showed me how fun it can be to make new friends. No matter the age, size, color, shape, personality of those approaching, Huntley anticipates and enjoys a meet-and-greet. What a great idea for us people, too, right?!
A few months later, Huntley traveled to California to visit us. He made friends here, too. When we ventured to a local lake, he met this little girl with an oxygen tank in her tiny backpack. She and her mother are from Russia and spoke no English. But no words were needed; Huntley made her smile and laugh.
