Michelle's column: Friendly visits at the dog park
My 5-year-old niece and nephew were pretty jealous when, last weekend, I talked about taking my little dog, Rissa, to the dog park one afternoon.
“Um, Michelle?” said Joe, “I would like to go to the park with you.”
“Can we both come?” his twin sister, Emma, asked.
“Sorry, you guys,” I said. “I’m taking Rissa to a park for dogs, and I don’t have enough room in my back seat for Rissa and both of you.”
My reply was followed by a disappointed, “Aww!” in unison.
