June 27. Day 178. Children and animals

 According to Dogtime.Com, the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is a five star choice for being "an incredibly kid friendly breed". The Shih Tzu gains four out of five stars on the same ranking. In short, my fur babies are lovers of small people and today they were willing and able to share the love. My little mate Elliott has been asking after Rumple and Winkle since he arrived in the country. Baby brother Owen was yet to meet the fur friends so today it was time to make a house call. With a large grassy back yard, a bag of snacks, two balls and two devoted playmates the dogs were in heaven. The boys had boundless energy for throwing balls matched only by the dogs' energy for chasing and fetching. The joy on the faces of all was unmistakable. It is true that putting children and animals together is not always a desirable combination. But like so many things in life it depends on the individuals and my dogs will love anyone with a ball, a desire to play and a few Schmackos.
