A few weeks ago Alison and I watched my aunt and uncles dog while they were in Puerto Vallarta for my cousin's wedding. Neither of us have been around dogs much - both of our families actually have cats. The dog, Dante, is a pretty good sized boxer. Ada was very scared the first time I let her get a good look at him. After the first time though, she was pretty comfortable with him. She especially enjoyed the walks that we went on. While the chances are slim (ok, probably nonexistent) that we will ever have a dog we had fun getting to know Dante.
