Lonely Boy Playing in the Streets
--by Dreamer, posted Oct 2, 2006
There was a little, blond haired boy playing in the side streets. He looked kind of lonely kicking a football by himself. I noticed my two puppies were kind of drawn to the little boy. So, I asked permission for us to watch his football practice. He was kind of shy and said okay.
Later, the pups were really getting excited watching him practice kicking. I finally told him the most shy puppy I had- for the first time in her life wanted to run up to a boy (and she had been previously terrified of children). We cheered the little boy on as he made attempts to kick really hard. It was kind of nice to be in the moment rooting for someone else, some stranger in the middle of the street! I kind of felt he enjoyed the cheerleading squat on the sidelines too.
