This spaniel would not make a good guard dog. His joy and seeing us when we walked by was palpable. He had never met us before, but in seconds we were admitted to his friends, invited to stroke his muzzle, feel the velvet softness of his throat.
We did not learn his name, and it was hard to move on, but maybe we shall meet him again before long.
