About this Book

Print Excerpt


He puts his paw up on my knee, a signal from goldens that they want their chest scratched. I do so, and then he rests his head on my thigh as I pet it.

Fred comes over to the room, looks in and sees me petting Yogi in this position. “Pretty amazing, huh?”

“Fred, I’m aware of the regulations, but there’s something you should know.”

“What’s that?”

“Nothing bad is going to happen to this dog.”
