    Today was my brother's birthday and we coasted up to say hi and wish him a happy birthday. He lost his German Shepherd over a year ago so the guys went also as temporary dogs :)

    Of course Sca loves him as my brother is a big dog person. However last time Spitfire still was not to sure he wanted to be friends. This time Spitfire let him pet him a lot though did not like being picked up. Of course anytime Sca went over then all was OK and once the petting started he was not going to leave :lol:

    People came in and petted Sca (he has a store) but Spitfire hid behind me and was not about to let THOSE strangers touch him :pop A fun day.

    Each new person that my Echo has let pet her has been a major triumph. I so happy for Spitfire expanding his circle of "hooman" friends :smile2:

    They don't like strangers, but when a fur-sib is getting pets & love from someone, well, that person suddenly becomes very interesting to the shy Sheltie. Not sit-on-their lap interesting, no- interesting enough to approach, sniff carefully, and MAYBE allow them to pet the Sheltie.

    My Forrest would say Spitfire is very wise indeed to keep back from a stranger and let Sca take the risks first!:lol:

    Glad you all had a nice day visiting your brother.

    Colonel Underpants would like to commend Spitfire for being so picky.
