I love people and people love me. Occasionally I meet someone who is indifferent to me. That's fair enough, I don't take it personally. Sometimes I meet someone who really likes me but pretends not to. (I am not going to name names.) I think they have intellectual ideas about how dogs should be treated and do their best to ignore their real feelings. But we can sense them as clear as day.
Humans seem fond of pretending. Dogs do it too. The thing is that it is really difficult to fool a dog. So if a person is fond of me but pretending otherwise then I will just ignore the pretense. The same if someone is pretending to be friendly but has feelings to the contrary. I have a question about humans; is it easy for them to fool one another?

Life is great when you are young and a dog.
