The other day I encountered the huskies out for a walk. The four of them belong to this couple, who also foster huskies for rescue, which explains why I have sometimes seen five in their yard. I left Sophie on the other side of the street, or I would have asked them more questions (like the dogs' names). They were very well-behaved, and gave me tidy little nose-to-nose bumps when I crouched down to greet them, rather than slobbery licks as some dogs are wont to do.
Yesterday we met a sweet rottweiler whom we haven't seen at this house before. Most of the rotties I have known have been real creampuffs. This one was no exception, happy to sniff noses with Sophie and get a little skritch on the top of his head.
