Miss M: The Over-Confident Dog
Confident that they can walk the city streets without problem.
Confident they invite foster dogs into their home without caring.
And confident that they're unfazed by random drunk festival-goers who over-excitedly grab at their lips.
Over-confident in her athletic abilities
Even though I know she lacks in athletic skill (and apparently direction).
That when she's with a group of dogs she's really "that dog". The one trying to keep up with the gaggle all playing together and being left behind.
And the thing I remember the most, is when we were in another neighborhood, and there was a little fluffy puppy tied up outside the coffeeshop. Nearly every single person who walked by stopped to pet that puppy. And Miss M would get so excited that they'd come pet her next. So excited that she would begin curling her lip and wiggling her entire body in anticipation. But no one stopped to pet her. Not a single person. Each time she would swivel her head to watch them pass by, but instead of being sad, she would just swivel her head back start curling her lip and wiggling her entire body. I still remember it. And it made me a bit sad.
Though Miss M has never been sad for herself. Miss M is over-confident.
