No idea who the kid is. There is a sign outside on the gate that kids aren't allowed to run around in the dog park. They might get hurt and the park is for dogs and not a playground.
This kid saw Max and zoomed right to him. We knew Max would be ok. He's great with the kids at the house so why wouldn't he be the same in the park. We know our dog and he's super gentle.
Max allowed the kid to pet him and sort of hung around him for awhile. He really wanted a belly rub but didn't get it. He also protected the kid from other dogs.
His mother was amazed how much fun her son had with Max. Thinking I should get Max into a class to get a therapy dog certificate when we get to Florida.
This is Jill and her Golden who is a therapy dog. She brings him to the nursing home everyday and the patients love him.
