At my local coffee shop, you better like dogs.
Dog owners huddle together to discuss Bruno's latest trim. And the parentage of their dogs. And the dogs' diets. And the dogs' inoculations and operations. And their foibles.
Nancy and Leslie and their dogs sat down beside me while I was having a coffee and reading a book. They had a lovely conversation, which I can quote verbatim if you would like.
Bruno was bored by the conversation. He cuddled up next to me and helped me read my book until he fell asleep.
Nancy and Leslie agreed that I am a very patient man for sitting so calmly with Bruno sleeping on my leg.
