The sun spoils the photo, but it proves that it's there today, it mayn't be hotter that yesterday, but I still have a flame in my heart.
Le soleil gâche la photo, mais ça prouve qu'il est là aujourd'hui, il ne fait peut-être pas plus chaud qu'hier, mais j'ai toujours une flamme dans mon cœur.
Ain’t no fence tall enough to keep me from creeping on you #peoplewatching
In all seriousness, I actually keep Henry’s “people/dog” watching to a minimum for two reasons.
1. It reinforces his desire to scan the environment which is not a healthy state of mind for him and has led to anxiety and reactivity in the past.
2. Eye contact between dogs can be extremely problematic. Have you ever seen two dogs at a distance suddenly and simultaneously get on their hind legs and start barking and growling at each other? Why? They said all they needed to with eye contact. Eye contact is not the same polite socially appropriate behavior in dogs that is in humans. We learned this the hard way and have since prevented several scuffles by intervening at the eye contact stage and not the escalating behaviors that follow.
