Hello! Hello!

The dogs still won't eat, but they seem happier. They're used to getting walked now (the back yard isn't ready) and have started to to ask to go out.

Today on our walk we met some kids from Bangladesh who told me how they had a dog there staying with their grandmother. The two of them petted Matty and Leeloo. I didn't let them pet Tino, but I explained that just by saying friendly "Hellos!" to him, they were helping him become less afraid of other people and that was wonderful and helpful. They were pretty pleased with themselves, but I don't think I explained it quite right. They kept shouting, "Hello! Hello!" to me as I walked down the street.
