Eve: Mama, that was hard work and now I’m really tired.
Me: You did good Eve. I am so happy that you are able to “tell” me which dogs are safe and which are not. You have been right about 99% of the time!
Eve: 99? Is that like a hundred?
Me: Nope. It means you can make mistakes just like mama can!
Eve: I knew Bellah was safe when I first met her. She likes to move around a lot but she didn’t want to hurt me. If they seem dangerous to me, I stay between your feet so they can’t get me.
Me: Are you ever afraid when you test dogs for the rescue?
Eve: No. I know you’ve checked them first and I know you would never let any dog or any person hurt me.
Me: We have open housing here whenever possible so we have to make sure all the dogs are safe. We don’t want dogs getting hurt. After you tell me they are okay, we still put the dog separate until we see them interact safely.
Eve: Mama, I like being a volunteer!
Me: Me too Eve and I love working with my Best Girl!
Eve; And you’re my Best Mama!
