Some dogs can be miracle workers....

I read a really good non-fiction book, A Three Dog Life by Abigail Thomas, about how her dogs pretty much saved her sanity after her husband suffered a traumatic brain injury. And John Katz writes about his therapy dogs in Izzy and Lenore. It's wonderful how dogs can sometimes help people who are suffering.

I'm amazed at how they know when someone isn't well (even if the person doesn't realize it himself/herself).
We have some snarky dogs on our road that have bitten my daughter (yet the owners think the dogs are fine). (My daughter was over 20 at the time, jogging up the road, and the dogs were unleashed, as always, illegally.) Personally, I hold the owners to blame and not the dogs.

My son, the runner, has experienced that before, too. He likes dogs, but when he's running, he's always on the lookout, because he's been chased by angry dogs so many times.
