Boy meets dog. Dylan meets Austin. A two-day-old boy meets a four-year-old golden.
I thought it would be magic. After all, they’re going to be best friends, they just don’t know it yet. So, I wanted to capture the moment. I set up my iPhone tripod, and hit record. Lisa was in charge of Dylan, I was in charge of Austin. Yes, Austin had previously smelled something of Dylan’s. Not much happened. So, instead of showing you the original video, I added some entertainment value.
On a potentially depressing note … when you have a dog, and then add a baby, you inevitably do the math. If everything goes well, Austin will likely die sometime when Dylan is in 5th to 8th grade. Yeah. There’s a great chance this will be his first real moment of dealing with death.
