    I have a really sweet, loving black lab mix, pound dog. He walks with us a lot of places. Most people who try to get him to come over to them usually get ignored unless we intervene and get him to pay attention.  Sometimes, though, he'll drag us over to someone who gets a real greeting.  One day a few years ago he dragged me up some steps to the pedestrian bridge landing, where he proceeded to enthusiastically greet a guy I had never seen before.  After much petting and ear scratching, the guy turned to me and said, "I lost my dog a few months ago and I have really been grieving. This was wonderful. thank you!".  My dog just knew. I think that's awesome.  

    So much for "dumb", eh?  Love that Lucy knew it too, and was there at the right time.
