Then, this evening when I got home from work and let the dogs outside, I noticed the neighbors with the children. outside. I spoke about them in my first exposures post. I heard the little boy talking to his dad about my dogs. He was telling his dad that Hank was the one who barks and only has half a tail. Then, he told his dad that Daphne could not hear and that we had to use hand signals with her. He tried to show his dad the cue for her sit which was actually a down, but this was all so sweet. I showed him the hand cue for a sit and told him he was really close.
I was amazed that he remembered, especially since he was the child who wasn't able to pet the dogs due to his allergies. But he, nonetheless, listened intently.
It really made me smile, and I know he was smiling too.
