I think I’m beginning to understand why dog is man’s best friend. When I was a kid, I was attacked by my neighbors very large wolf looking dog, I think it must have been a husky. This experience has made me petrified of dogs ever since. I struggle being near dogs even when I’m walking down the street and they’re on a leash. I usually will move off the sidewalk onto the grass or even cross the street to avoid being near a dog. There are five or six dogs here on the ranch that roam free, Travis helps take care of them. 
This is the first time in my life that I haven’t been afraid of dogs. They dogs here are so sweet, they’re charged full of positive energy and I don’t feel threatened by them at all. I actually really enjoy being with them and like to call them over and pet them. The other night Carmel came over to me and just rested her head on my legs as I was petting her and it made me feel so happy and warm. I really like these dogs.
