Here she came, joyously romping over to us, carrying her Frisbee In her wide jaws, ready to play. My daughter and I were finishing up a walk when the large yellow lab spotted us. Ignoring her owner’s calls, tail wagging happily, she invited us to join in her game. Eileen took her up on it, wrestled the Frisbee from her mouth and sailed it back toward her owner. She sprang into action running right back to where he could grab her. He and two other large dogs with Frisbees in their mouths were on their way to play somewhere, but she couldn’t wait. She didn’t know us, had not seen us before, but wanted to include us in her play day. To her it didn’t matter what race we were or age or gender or what church we attended, she invited us to join her in a friendly game. Don’t you love dogs!
