Sometimes Martin doesn't take Bodhi with him when he walks Ami to school in the mornings because he doesn't like the sound that little kids make when they see our dog. I agree that it can be really annoying but he misses out on other things too. Today when I had Bodhi with me a very little boy with big brown eyes and a Paddingon-esque coat said to me "your cute is (pause) dog". I think he wasn't expecting to say anything outloud but it just poured out of him. You only get that kind of random cuteness if you walk the dog to an elementary school in the mornings.
