Snoopy and Charlie Brown Weren’t This Close

, , , , | Friendly | August 1, 2019

I was visiting my parents. We were sitting in the garden when their neighbour came over with her foster dog, a cute, old beagle. It was standing next to her while she talked to us, not moving a lot. After some time and without any context, she leaned down to the dog, opened its mouth with both hands, and spat inside. Then, she continued the conversation with us just like nothing had happened.

The dog looked confused. We were confused. It took her a while to realise we actually did not find that normal. Her explanation was, “Oh, we just have that special bond!”

I don’t think the dog shared that opinion.
