Consent Is So Important

, , , , | Friendly | July 24, 2020

A friend has stopped to visit while driving to check out an apartment in a new state. We go walking downtown to talk and let his husky, who rode along, stretch her legs.

It is a nice day and many people are out. A small girl of two or three sees the husky and starts to run towards her, squealing, “Doggy!”

To my delight, her mom stops her and tells this little one that she has to ask permission to pet a dog. 

The little girl stops, solemnly leans forward, and seriously asks, “Can I pet you?”

…to the husky.

My friend cracked up so hard he had to lean against a lamp post while her parents groaned and explained a little better.
