So, Meredith brought her dog Conner and I learned a new breed. Conner is a Belgian Turveran, sometimes called a Belgian Shepherd. Had I not known he was a purebred something or other, I would have guessed collie/shepherd. He also looks a bit fox. Collie shaped head, long nose and fur. Fox-like tale and soft little ears. A statuesque shepherd body and the ability to bark deeply and threatenly even when he doesn't mean any harm.
I miss my family's dogs, so I always enjoy hanging out with other people's pets. Lindsey brought her black, short haired dachshund, Lucy. Conner and Lucy are best friends despite their size difference.
A long-haired dachshund walks by on a leash. Lucy goes over to say hi, but abruptly runs a way scared, causing laughter from both owners. Conner barks, prompting Meredith to say, "Its like having a child that screams at other children."
