truce

August 5, 2010

It was, perhaps, a minor victory in the grand scheme of things.  But it was significant for me, in that it was what I had hoped for: today my human charge extended a scepter [hand] of peace towards the [paw] of my canine charge.  After an initial teary-eyed, clinging arms encounter, he decided to let his little boy curiosity prevail over the fear.

And I dare say, I was relieved.  For though I do not generally mind the heat, skyrocketing temps plus a crying infant plus a large dog who does not always obediently follow on his leash made me wonder if maybe, sometimes, I do mind it . . . just a little bit :-)
