I spend an hour each day walking our dog Jasper. The reason it takes that long is that we meet so many other dogs and their owners along the way. I never realized how friendly people get when you have a dog. We exchange information on dog breeds and then conversation turns to the names of our dogs. I don’t know about you but I love hearing the names people have selected for their dogs! Jasper has friends named Pepper, Baxter, Fritz, Jake, Rufus, Morgan, Simon, Casper and Frannie. The embarrassing thing is I remember the dog’s name but not the owners! Selective memory?!
