SOLSC: I Should Get One Like That

My daughter was babysitting a two-and-a-half year old little girl, and we were enjoying the warm, sunny weather.

A young man was walking his dog. Emily was standing at the fence watching the two. My eyes grew large as I focused on the size of the dog, thankful I was safe inside the fence.  As the owner came closer, the dog seemed to be growing and growing until a large Doberman Pinscher appeared. The beast was taller than the little girl admiring him. In her sweet, child-like voice, Emily pronounced, “I should get one like that.”

Intimidated – no way.

    I wonder if she thought it would be about like a horse, riding & all. What a beautiful story, & a fearless little girl.

    How cute! It’s pretty great that she didn’t get scared…my kids would have climbed me like a tree if they had seen that dog when they were little!

    Fearless! Is she that fearless about everything? She must be familiar with dogs in her family, Huh? Wouldn’t it be nice to have that kind of courage, I don’t. Nice slice.

    A quick glimpse of a precious moment. Those words would have been lost if you hadn’t recorded this scene. Too cute!

      I began to chuckle and then grabbed my notebook. I even asked my daughter, “How did she exactly say that?” Even in those few seconds, I almost lost the slice. Instead, I now am looking for more like it.

    Good for her! I have been afraid of dogs most of my life and would have been clutching the fence!

  6. Oh, what the world looks like through the eyes of babes! I love it! I like that this most important line was also your title.

  7. Cute post. Love your daughter’s comment! The dog did not look friendly.
