We had dinner at friends’ tonight – something we’ve not done in a very long time, and never before with this couple. The dogs were out of control, very much like spoiled children. I have never understood why people are oblivious to the disruptive behavior of their wee ones (two footed or four footed) when company is present. I couldn’t help but flinch sometimes at the barking, it was so loud it hurt my ears. It was flinch noticed by the hosts, but nothing was done. I enjoyed seeing everyone, but it wonderful to escape into the quiet of the night.
