Anyway, I try to let Dorian have plenty of exposure to other people's dogs. For instance, my mom's dog, a Lhasa Apso named Tasha, is the best dog ever. She doesn't smell bad, doesn't shed, and doesn't drool. I'm not even kidding. Plus, she climbs in your lap and cuddles. I could almost take her home, if it weren't for the middle-of-the-night pee trips and the chewed-up blinds if you leave her alone for more than a few hours. Dorian was very intrigued. He also liked my grandpa's dog, Butch. He wasn't quite as cuddly, but when he barked, Dorian thought it was the funniest thing ever. Good thing he laughs at lots of things, or else I'd have to get a barking dog, just so I could hear that laugh every day.
