I just got back from dinner and drinks with my newest set of Connecticut friends – we met at the Branford Supply Ponds after my dog ran wild around their two dogs and brought general havoc into their day.
I’ve met all of my “outside-of-work friends” through my beagle Huckleberry. If I were ever to run my own dating site, I think I would call it Must Love Dogs.
I’ve never met someone who really loved their pets that I didn’t like.
I think people who are practiced in caring for animals are patient, kind, tolerant, and understanding. That’s probably why they get along with each other so well.
I’m dedicating this post to my dog Huckleberry – who has served as my companion and the best icebreaker in helping me make friends in Connecticut!
