I can confirm that as well Mr Hippie. I have a lot of 4 legged friends here Recently there was a female that took to me whilst her brother (extremely timid (as stated by the owner)) coward-ed under the ladie's skirt so to speak. Both were rescues and the male showed sign of abuse/trauma, not physically but, you catch my drift.i've been in PetSmart & other places, wandering around, and...see a dog! they invariably spot me too, and drag their owners over so i will pet them. how do they know? i've had more than one person say "this is nuts, my dog does not like anyone..." i must have some aura or something they see and say to themselves "that guy, right there! HE'LL pet me..." it drives my wife nuts. "do you HAVE to pet every dog you see?" "nope, it's purely voluntary."
