Wilhelmina, " Have I mentioned yet how great a big brother Duffy has been to me? He is the best big brother a puppy could ask for! Right from the start, Duffy decided his job was to look out for me. At eight years of age, Duffy is mellow but when it comes to me, he is The Negotiator, with any dog who runs up to meet and greet me! He doesn't want anyone to play roughly with me or to use inappropriate language that might sting my young, sensitive puppy ears and feelings!"
Wilhelmina, " Here we are at River Park. Can you see me peeking out at your bottom right? I am waiting for my intercessor to begin. This dog has to agree to play nicely with me or else he won't get to play with me at all!"
Wilhelmina, " When Duffy gives me the signal, I can approach. That means this dog is well socialized and will play nicely with me!"
Wilhelmina, " When we have finished playing, and the approved of dog departs to continue his walk down the river, Duffy my negotiator, goes looking for a new playmate while I catch my breath! He may be eight years old and weigh just seven pounds, while I am eight months old and weigh fifty-one pounds, but I don't doubt for a moment that Duffy has my back! I won the lottery when it comes to big brothers."
