And we don't even know it.
Today I was hangin' with my Mom. Together we went to a small plaza to pick up some essentials, which I must say has a different meaning for her than for me.
While we were parked in the lot, as is so often the case, Mom opened the sun roof and I stood on the centre console with my head out through the top of the car. Lucky for me I'm a tall boy. It's a very funny sight to see.
As Mom made her way from shopping back to the car, a lady approached her.
"Is that your dog?" she asked.
"Yes", Mom said not sure if she should openly admit to it in fear of what the lady would say to her.
"I'm having a very bad day," the lady continued. "I was just in the doctor's office having my blood pressure taken, and I have to say it's very high and I'm not feeling very well. When I turned and looked out the window I saw your dog with his head peaking out of the top of the car looking around for you. It brought the biggest smile to my face. Instantly all my troubles faded away as I watched him. He looked so cute and it made me feel so happy watching him."
"Oh, that's wonderful that he was able to do that for you," my Mom replied.
The lady walked over to the car and reached out and stroked my head.
"His name is Riley," my Mom said.
"He's a very handsome boy. Thank you Riley for turning my day around."
