Today I saw a young dog in the Home Depot parking lot, a cocker spaniel, I think, although I’m not good with dog breeds. She had slipped out of her collar and was having the best time playing “catch me if you can”. She’d let her human come right up to her and then spring away, run a wide loop, and then come back, just out of reach, over and over again. The human was exasperated; the dog was having the time of her life. I haven’t seen anyone that joyful since Disneyland. It made me smile.
