“When I grow up, I want to have a dog like Snoopy for a pet. We will play Fetch with a ball and Frisbee,” declared my 11 year-old nephew Kenji. “What is Snoopy’s breed? Have you seen one?” he asked.
“Snoopy is a Beagle.” I replied. “No, I haven’t met any Beagles so far.”
Two months after, we went to a dog gathering… and met a cute pair of Beagles named Wally and Belle.
“Hey, you want to learn about Beagles here’s your chance,” I told Kenji. “They are coming toward us.”
Kenji had a chat with owners Kevin and JoAnn. Meanwhile, Max greeted with Wally and Belle. They even posed for the camera.
We socialized with other dog owners, too. After this event, Kenji told me that he got interested with another breed — Siberian Husky. “When I grow up I want a dog similar to Hiro,” he said. “Do all Sibes have blue eyes?” he asked with fascination.
He’s so fickle. I wonder how he would react in front of a Great Dane. (We hope Ian, the dog owner of a GD would show up next time.)
