Hanging out with new friends


I enjoy human kids. When I’m not working, they’re a lot of fun to be around.

Recently, Ed had a speaking engagement with some local students who are visually impaired. They were competing in a contest known as the Braille Challenge, sponsored by the national Braille Institute. And, wow, these kids are good.  (Check out this article to learn more.)

Once he was finished talking, Ed answered questions. Naturally, many of questions were about me, because I’m that gorgeous.  Ed took off my harness—which let the kids know that I was off-duty and that it was okay for them to pet me.

Then a teacher asked if she could pet me too, and before you know it, I was totally feeling the love from so many kind people—students, parents, teachers. Yeah.

It was a good day.
