We had a visitor on Monday. She came with her two friends, Mia and Pebbles.
She talked to the kids about approaching a dog (never if you are alone or if there is no owner with it), how much it costs to raise a puppy or kitten, what to do if you see a stray, and how they "test" the animals to see if they are fit to be adopted.
Did you know that dogs can distinguish between ages? I had no idea! I thought I was pretty knowledgeable when it came to dogs.
Of course I had to "test" my poor little Rosie.
This is her last summer. Obviously, she is ok with kids under 2. But, put her with a man in a hat and she will cower until she becomes familiar with him.
I highly suggest bringing in someone from an animal shelter. They have a lot of wonderful information to share.
Have a wonderful day!
