My shy dog does not get nearly enough of this kind of treatment from strangers. Thank you. Thankyouthankyouthankyou. Seriously, I cannot thank you enough, from the very bottom of my heart.

I can't be the only one who started reading this one and thought "she got the wrong thread!"
Seriously awesome, though. I love when people exceed expectation with anticipating dog behaviours.
