Family Businesses Are the Best Businesses

Today, my mom and I went to the Shatto Milk Company, a sort of ritual with us, like eating at Winstead's. There, we discovered to my delight that they'd moved their shop to a larger part of the building. It's good to know my favorite dairy is doing well enough to expand. After browsing the new premises, we supplied ourselves with milk (I got rootbeer. Yum!) and honey butter.

While we were browsing, a resident collie, who had full-run of the store, came up and greeted us. Collies are such pretty dogs. A while later, she went and got one of her toys and came up and dropped it at my feet. We played tug-o-war for a good five or ten minutes.

There's something immensely validating about a strange dog deciding, without encouragement or coaxing, that it wants you to be best friends.
