I may have mentioned this earlier, but, quite by accident, I have recently become friends with people who like to take me out on their boat. Yay for me!
Over July 4, I went out on my friends' boat to watch the fireworks. I invited two married friends to go with me (my best friend and her husband.) They reciprocated by having us all out on their boat a month or so later. With their dogs.
This is Hans. He is my surrogate dog. He absolutely loves me. When I run with my best friend (who owns Hans and his sister), I hold his leash. When he sees me, he jumps up and down; turning in circles with excitement. It is so fun to see. And he'll do it every time, even if he just saw me three hours earlier. He is willed to me, though that should not come into play since his owners are just 40!
