This man and his tiny dog were telling us the story of the friendship between them. It is often so easy to talk to someone who has a dog or a baby....we all show our best selves.

Such a gentle man, and interesting....I would have liked to have talked with him for a long time. Life is funny and filled with grace.

Interesting and very true observation about the effect of dogs and kids! Love the expression on both their faces, nice PP

Isn't it though? Life, filled with grace. Such a nice share with us. A man and his dog. A dog and his man. You are sharing them with us in a charming and sweet way.

Ah yes, this couple is a real one and the way they half "close" their eyes like sibling is priceless. A great encounter & portrait, Susan.
