Many children are afraid of us dogs. Many children love us dogs! And many children are afraid of us dogs but want to love us. They want to get close to us and not get close to us.
Sometimes my mom and I take a walk to the school. She leaves me alone outside the building while she goes inside. For a while, I’m alone but I know she’ll come get me soon.
Then the children come by!
These are good times when the children come by. They love to pet me. They know my name. My mom says that when they see her and they don’t see me, they ask, “Where’s Joey?” They ask “Why isn’t Joey with you?”
Then they tell her to say “Hello” to me, and she comes home and says “Ariel says hello!” or names one of the other children who have become my friends.
Maybe you would like to tell a little about why children love us dogs! Please comment below!
