Johnny has a fascination with dogs. Every time he comes into contact with a dog, we try really hard to teach him to be gentle by saying "gennnntle... gennnntle..." and moving his open hand slowly and delicately. Then right after we let go, he lunges for the poor dog and grabs a handful of skin and fur... we're working on it.
Last weekend, Aunt Leslie came over with her two little dogs, Pepe and Carson. Johnny was pretty excited about being around them and they handled it pretty well, though Pepe was more tolerant of Johnny than Carson was.
