I have had almost the exact opposite experience..! I have found you can get a strange, strong sense of something bigger... much bigger than us from contact with animals... dogs included..
I would be so bold as to suggest that you befriend someone with an over the top friendly, never aggressive dog..
You will come away with much, much more than you can imagine..
As a cyclist, who used to train many miles per week with headphones in my ears.. I was attacked and bitten not once but twice!! By an animal that was simply stimulated by chasing and catching bicycles... both times after the dog nabbed and knocked me from my bike.. the dogs stuck around to try and continue to "play" w me!!! The dogs felt like chasing and chewing on my ankle or calf was a game..it came out of nowhere and the loud music playing in my ears..made the dog knock downs a complete... unpleasant surprise!!
Both owners assisted me after crashing... once I suffered a broken collar bone,bent wheel and handlebars...
Call me dumb or dense but I still love dogs....?
* This maybe a complete false premise... but while I have been in the company of many children..they look at my positive attitude and interaction with dogs and always it has led to a hesitant to flat out scared child at least accepting some interaction and less fear of dogs... can't help but think it may work for adults also....?

Thank you, guys.

There will probably always be a little bump there (vet called it granuloma), just because that crap had been in there for so long. I'm glad he showed me what to look for, I would have never imagined grass seed could get stuck like that.

Anyhoo, Toby is a happy camper again, once the fur grows back we'll just pretend this never happened. :)

The latest update on the Tobster...

His paw is perfectly healed now, even the granuloma has disappeared. However, being it will be in the 90s F here all week he will be needing a haircut...

As usual he's acting like he's facing the guillotine (can't really blame him, I mean, it is a stationary bike he will be tied to), but he will be getting that haircut one way or another.

Buckle up, pupster, you ARE getting that haircut!

Hi ya, Pip,

Each day you're looking more and more like a terrier (well, the head at least), I like that in a lady.

You're still a pup, but eventually you'll learn that tearing up your owner's furniture is probably not the best of ideas. But in the meantime...

Enjoy your puppyhood, and many paw-fives,

The Tobster

PS - I'm just chillin' it here by the A/C vent right now, an old dog like me just can't take this kind of outdoor heat (100F) anymore. Image
