Maybe. This morning, a quiet stranger asked if she could pet me, and I said yes. But I backed up and hid behind Mary when someone ran up, and also when two loud people wanted to touch me. We met some little ones, too. I got about four feet away from the ones tied up in a stroller, but I kept my distance from the one who was not leashed. Mary and Bill let me decide how close I want to get to people and things. Bill is very brave. We met a great big dog. I sat with Mary and Bill walked across the street to pet the dog. Then I walked Mary over and gave the dog a little sniff. But I stood very, very still with my tail down while he sniffed me.
