when walking on a path in the park today
i noticed 5 different dogs, with 4 different owners
coming from all directions
lots of jumping and friendly barking
wondering how they would all get along
it was a planned play date
a dog party
so thrilled to see each other
immediately falling into joyful play
just like in one of my very favorite books
go, dog, go!
with the surprise dog party at the end.
(sorry for the too late spoiler alert)
