This is Chloe, a really bright kid who, although she had never seen the dog before, soon got it to come over to her for a hug. “Is it your dog?” I asked her, as she kept on stroking him without looking up. “No, he’s not mine, we just met him and he came over to me and he loves having a fuss made of him,” she replied. The dog was a picture of absolute contentedness – so much tenderness and love in that little girl’s arms! And thus I was treated to this scene of purest innocence.
