The more we walk in north Marquette, our neighborhood (also called the Swamp, which makes it sound worse than it is), the more we meet other dogs. There's Joey, who lives in this cool house with a cool color scheme and a pretty garden, which he might not notice. We met a pitbull named Becky today. Now I'm guessing on their name spellings, but that's irrelevant. We like making dog friends, although with Digby he's still a wild card. He still prefers big black dogs. Yesterday at Mattson Park we came across a Finnish laphund Digby seemed to like. However, the owner warned he was an unneutered male, so we kept our distance. No matter. That's one of the dogs' favorite walks. We will visit soon as weather permits. Walking dogs and watch sailboats is a good combination.
