The other day this hippy girl came by with her dog and Beans wanted to meet the dog. But the dog was all too "aggressive" pulling on its leash with all the girl could do in holding it back. Beans didn't back down an inch. "Oh, so that's how you want to be? Come on, show me what you got!"
Beans took her sideways arched back stance, fur up on her back and tail all fluffed out. The girl was genuinely afraid for her dog. "Well, that went real well" I said and we both went our ways.
I was so proud of Beans.
