urge to herd Posted December 11, 2014 Report Share Posted December 11, 2014 Gibbs and I are at my favorite home-grown ranch/pet supply store, the one where he flew up on the counter a few months ago. I'm about to pay for my undercoat rake, and out of the corner of my eye I see a toddler throwing himself at Gibbs. I'm able to get between him and Gibbs, who is showing a lot of whale eye and has his tailed tucked so tight it has disappeared. Mom grabs toddler and steps back. The kid is disappointed, but still smiles and points and says "Doggeeeeeee" in a hopeful voice. Mom is quite apologetic, (nice to hear), and I am gracious. I've not been around kids that much, really not at all in the last several years. I forgot they were that quick. Glad I saw it, glad Mom grabbed the kid and apologized, glad my dog would rather get the heck out of there than bite. Phew.
