Hi everyone it’s Cindy here. First I want to say that I checked the ingredients of all the ice cream in our freezer and non of it contained Xylitol. Thanks for the heads up on that even though like Frankie noted I didn’t leave a lot for Walter to lick.
Now I want to tell you a little about how Walter greets people. We admit that his manners need a little more work but so far Walter hasn’t met anyone he hasn’t liked. On Saturday evening I had a friend come over for dinner that I haven’t seen for a long time and Millie & Walter had never met. We were supposed to go to an outdoor concert later but rain cancelled those plans.
My friend Maggie and I used to work together at our local humane society. Maggie has owned many dogs of all types and sizes and is excellent when greeting dogs she has never met. Her calm gentle demeanor endears any dog to her. Shortly after she entered the house Maggie sat down in one of the kitchen chairs. Walter did his usual greeting where he puts his front paws on your lap (okay I have to admit that I do allow him to do this with me every day so he doesn’t really know any better – I love my Walter hugs). He kept trying to give Maggie kisses so she decided she would help him and this was the result.
I didn’t have the camera handy at first but Charlie ran to get it and this was what we caught. Maggie had hoisted his butt onto her lap and the two enjoyed a wonderful snuggle. As you can see everyone had smiles on their faces. Walter might be a bit much for some people but I knew Maggie didn’t mind and just embraced Walter’s enthusiastic way of saying hello.
Since the concert was rained out we just enjoyed a lovely evening of catching up and the pups enjoyed getting to know Maggie too. I have to say Walter sure is one happy pup that loves to meet new people and does it with lots of passion.
