Always follow your dog’s lead

crop-800-benny-lap-jpgToday Benny went to his usual Monday assignment. We had a very small group to spend time with, the smallest group ever. He usually loves having a larger group and he goes from one teen to another, sharing his special love. But today he seemed to focus on one young person, snuggling in the lap and not wanting to move on. Maybe he knew this person needed him the most, or maybe he needed this person the most. Whatever the reason, the other kids were not jealous and somehow understood this was important to the two of them. Everyone learned something today about the human-animal bond — always take the lead from the animal … they just know what to do.
