franklin and friend

i took
 these
 last weekend

 almost
 posted
 them
 before
 today

 i just loved
 the way
 franklin
 he's 2 years old
 lowered
 himself down
 to 
the level
 of 
that 3 month old
 havanese



 i didnt get her name
 sorry 

she barked at him
 as
 he and his person
 were walking by


 as soon as
 he approached her
 she backed up


 he lay 
down
 immediately 
so she would know
 he was not going to hurt her

 i fell in love
 with
 them both
 tho
 the little javanese 
would
 fit in my life
 a lot better
 than
a full grown
 saint bernard
 even
one
as
 sweet
as 
franklin

  7. I love when big dogs understand that they are intimidating to little ones. My ex neighbour's yellow lab, Jake wanted so much to play with my cat, Skitty. Skitty's immediately backed away as Jake bounded toward him. Jake read his body language and immediately laid his big bones down and almost imperceptibly inched toward him while whimpering. Skitty calmed completely after that. Such good dogs!
