This is a happy child. And a dog who is fooled into looking happy.
Pie would be a lot happier if Missy understood being gentle. We are working on it, but no joy so far. Missy seeks Pie out because Pie will usually hold still for the "petting." (In reality is is whacking, pulling, poking, etc.) Fancy and Dottie are more likely to excuse themselves. I have a no petting policy with Missy and the Muff.
