At our apartment, we have a couple of neighbors that actually pick up their dogs (Boxer & Collie) when they see Casey. Hello, he’s a Golden Retriever, not a Bear. He’s one of the friendliest dogs on this Earth!
I remember getting bit once by a Poodle when I was little and then almost getting bit by a Pit Bull in college. Maybe, that’s why I don’t like Pit Bulls & Poodles, or I was just trying to pet those dogs the wrong way. . . .
