I'd like to thank my 80 lb. golden retriever for introducing us to our "new" neighbors today. We go for a leisurely stroll around the block - toddler in wagon, dog on leash, little plastic poop bag in back pocket because we're responsible like that. We see our two-doors-down neighbors greeting a visitor at their front door. Maybe this will be a good time to make eye contact, smile, and wave since we've never properly met them. Suddenly their little black dog comes running out of the house and jumps all over Beckham. Beckham goes crazy because he is all about having fun and making new bff's. Curt stops in his tracks so the owner's son can catch their little dog and take him or her inside. And then our dog, a.k.a. the abominable snowman, a.k.a. jug head, squirms out of his collar and RUNS INTO THEIR HOUSE. AND CHASES THE LITTLE DOG THROUGHOUT THEIR LIVING ROOM. AND THERE ARE PEOPLE FLEEING THE HOUSE BECAUSE THEY ARE AFRAID OF BIG DOGS. Nice to meet you, neighbors!
