Woof! What? Woof!
George Miller experienced just how easy things would be if dogs could talk. His four-legged friend sat staring straight ahead for days at a certain spot on the wall.
It took George quite some time to realize what his dog was looking at, but once he did, he went from one surprise to another.
Crosby, George’s dog, had been staring at the same spot on the wall for days. He only left this position at mealtime. Even though George had already inspected every bit of wall several times, he decided to get up again and take another look at what was holding his pet’s attention.
And, like all the times before, the dog, Crosby, was convinced George had understood him when he headed for the wall. The happy dog hopped around the room, wagging his tail happily. The inspection had been in vain again, George didn’t understand at all. What was wrong with that wall?
George Miller, a 29-year-old bachelor, had become very lonely after moving to another city. He decided to go to the shelter and fell head over heels in love with Crosby, who was still a puppy at the time. George loved his four-legged friend and over the years he learned that a dog is indeed a man’s best friend.
Crosby was George’s favorite topic of conversation. Whether on a date or chatting with colleagues over lunch, he often talked about his dog. “Crosby is one of the sweetest animals you will ever meet,” he would say. “And he’s very loyal.”
George had no idea what adventure he would have thanks to Crosby.
