Yesterday I met some friends at the Ale Emporium to wish a friend who is moving goodbye. When we went in the front door, there in the entrance, was a dog. She stayed there most of the night. Even after 100’s of people were there. She just watched and listened. Right before I left I went out to pet her. She loved it. Then we played with her ball a little too. She really seemed wise. Had a look in her eye like a person. I asked one of the regulars about her. Some of it I understood and some not. It was evidently the restaurant owner’s dog. It was a girl and it had the most interesting name taken from biblical history. Wish I could remember it. I got quite a story. Very surreal.
