Dylan's BFF...

Goose comes from the other side of the tracks. I don't mean that he comes from a bad part of town. I mean he literally lives on the other side of the railroad tracks from the dog park we go to every morning.

Dylan wakes up every morning and hurries us along to get off the boat and onto the field. As we arrive, Goose, Huck, and Malcolm (Goose and Huck's dad) arrive on the other side, crossing the railroad area. A mad dash ensues as all dogs run toward each other. From then on, Dylan and Goose never leave each other's side.

It doesn't matter whether there is a toy or a stick - they spend their time running and chasing each other. Both are 2 years old and they are well matched in temperament and abilities.

Dylan might have different dogs in different ports but Goose stands out as a special one along the waterways we'll travel.  He's a best friend forever.

Karen and Jeff, what a lovely description of the kids' friendship! We wish you "bon voyage" (when the cold breaks enough, that is) and we ALL are already looking forward to the spring day when our trip to the park ends with the sight of Dyna and Dillon from your "other side" of the tracks. Judy
