I recently spent a week in hospital, being a nicotine addict I struggled out a few times the first day. Outside each time their were a number of people either smoking or vaping. On the second day, we arranged a time and my friend brought my lovely girl Folly to visit. Yes it was lovely to see her and she loved seeing me. But I noticed that most people around came over to fuss her and we finished up with quite a group chatting away. From then on, apart from the day of my op, she visited and each time she had the same effect. So a dog that can not talk and only knew me and my friend, without trying, got a group together being nice to each other.
