Your happy pup

Posted on Fri, May 29, 2015 at 4:00 AM

I was standing at the Spring Garden Road bus stop outside of McDonald’s when you came walking down the road with the happiest pup on the end of a leash. As you walked by, I watched your puppy climb into the lap of a particularly hard looking gentlemen that was sitting on the ground to give him the most joyful love and kisses. Instead of calling your pup to come long, you stopped and, just like your furry friend, you were kind. Without discrimination you chatted happily as the toothless, wild haired man enjoyed the unconditional love of an animal. Your humility was inspiring. —Bus stander
