On Sunday, I met a tall woman walking a small dog, a beagle-terrier mix, with a service dog's harness. The woman told me that I could pet the dog, who wasn't a Seeing Eye, but was being trained as a service dog for autistic children, and would in due course be placed with a child. The dog leaned against my legs, and I reached down to pet her.

The woman commented after a minute that the dog would be happy to remain like that all day. "Or until dinner time," I said. She agreed to that; I said that I had had a beagle as my best friend growing up, and beagles like their dinner. Also, they're sweet-natured and good listeners, and should be good for autistic children.

In due course, I finally did stop petting the dog, and we parted, but it had been a pleasant meeting.
