It's not all angst and aggro. Maybe sometimes it's just too early to summon up the energy. A lovely big husky got on the bus. A woman made a great big fuss about him. Nothing to do with dog or owner, just a random, gushing. The dog ambled up to me, and I reached out to stroke him, keeping it pretty calm and reserved. The woman screeched, come back. His owner was a bit nonplussed. Not even her dog in the first place.
Huh. Maybe he preferred my calm approach. You wonder whether cute creatures human or animal really appreciate visible fuss and gushing.
