“There’s another in my back seat,” I offered.
“Oh Amy, Look! There’s another one!” She squealed again as if she had discovered Alfie for herself instead of me telling her. “Look, Amy, it’s a fawn.”
“Ohhhh, look! They’re so cute! Mary!”
“Oh, that one is so cute!” The older woman says pointing at Waffles!
“They are so cute!” The two women exclaimed.
This was my encounter when I took the pugs through the McDonald’s drive thru the other day. An hour later we were walking in downtown Randolph when a woman in an old car, shaking from the volume of the music on the radio, rolled down her window and squealed at us. “They’re so cute!”
I had to smile. Dogs have a way of bringing people closer, encouraging conversation among strangers. Pugs have a way of spreading unadulterated joy!
