A Chance Meeting

A Chance Meeting

I see them as I walk. They are black, brown, or white. They limp on old arthritic legs, or trot with jaunty steps. They are short and stubby, or tall and thin. Some have long hair, some short. Some eyes meet mine, and others ignore me as I pass. I even saw one being pushed in a stroller! What am I meeting as I ramble through the neighbourhood? Dogs, of course. The dog walkers take their family pets out of their yards and into the world, where they can enjoy some new and unfamiliar sights and smells. The friendly ones stop to get aquatinted, and we may share a moment or two if their person is willing to pause. The contentment of these canines is evident on their faces. While they are out with their beloved owner, all is right with their world.
