Yesterday we introduced the pup from next door. Those pictures were taken when the kids from next door were at school. Over the pandemic, the kids and I have become good friends. Tere is 10 year old J, 8 year old M, and my special boy, who is not pictured, almost 5 year old D. D and I are very good friends, but I love the girls too. Sometimes I see the girls at the bus stop in the morning and often they stop by on their walk home if we are out.

D loves me sooooo much that when his family was starting to look for a new dog, their 13 year old Diesel, who we never met as he did not like other dogs, unfortunately went to the bridge earlier this year. D told his parents he wanted a big orange dog like me! So while the rest of the family may have wanted a blue coloured dog, he is very excited that Callie is orange.
I am very lucky to have kids who love me. Hailey is doing ok with them too. She always has to bark when she first sees them, but the kids are use to it and aren't scared. Then she lets them pet her. She just doesn't love them like I do but she does like them.
We are lucky to have neighbourhood kids!
