Harry and Milly, the Papillon dogs that make an empty nest more bearable (part 4)

“We just moved to New York from London and our routine is always the same.

We go for long walks every day; I like to take long walks and they are always willing.

I think Harry more than Milly has changed my life.

I love having him but he doesn’t like people petting him.

I tend to try to please people and it’s upsetting to see people so disappointed that he won’t let them pet him.  I feel like I am letting people down.

I also feel like dogs are mirrors of us.

I try to learn from their behavior.

Just like with people, you can’t control their behavior.

You can only control your own responses.

I try not to be disappointed, but more accepting.”
