UNEXPECTED FRIEND...

 Meet Tucker.
 Tucker belongs to my SIL and daughter and they are moving to Arizona soon.  We went to help do some moving, and got to meet Tucker.  I am not a dog person.  Mainly because I have been attacked a couple of times.  
 Tucker impressed me because he doesn't bark much or lick you to death!  I decided he might be okay.  We even took him on a walk!

When we went to visit the Grand Canyon one evening, we took Tucker with us.  Tucker liked my lap.  

I decided Tucker was a cool dog.  My family couldn't believe it.
OK, so Tucker did bark.  He barked at all the elk we saw in the park!

Tucker taught me a lesson.  I think sometimes we write people off kinda like me and my prior experiences with dogs.  For a long time I have had no interest in dogs.  I should be more open to new people and give them a chance.  Given a little time you can see good in almost everyone and they'll grow on you...kinda like Tucker.
