    The neighbors brought over a 2 year old to see the guys last night. Spitfire actually went up on his own to let her touch him! Angus barked and bounced around a lot. I think he was trying to get her to chase though she was far to young.

    Eight years might be enough for Willow to stop swooning over everyone she meets. :) You give me hope.

    Unlikely Sca died when he was eight and ADORED little kids. He would pull to go see them anytime one was spotted. He was also awesome at being super gentle with the little ones and wild with the older ones. Spitfire has always considered kids a little above puppies which were vermin to him.

    Fillion also goes full on end of leash bucking bronco whenever he sees a child! I don't get why--we had no littles around when he was a puppy. This even includes babies in strollers. He has to check them out. Koko stands quietly for pets. Benson hides behind my legs still *sigh*

    Finnie barks and growls when he sees kids (mainly the loud ones around school yards) but Piper loves kids! We've done Meet the Breeds 3 years in a row and he amazes me how gentle he is with them considering he wasnt exposed to them at all!

    Elijah is also starry-eyed when he sees little kids and babies in strollers. He has to go over to meet them. Luckily being cute and fluffy and not too big, most parents are OK with it. Cracks me up - NONE of my 5 girls ever liked kids - would actively avoid them.

    Two weeks ago we had 6 of our 8 grand kids at the house (16, 14, 7, 5, 3, & 18 months. Zulu was in heaven, lots of running around, and lots of food on the floor. When he got tired of the young ones, he would go hang out with the teenagers. He has been around kids since his first week with us. IMG_20140524_133306.jpg
