While waiting in line at an outdoor coffee stand, I spotted a Great Dane standing like a miniature pony next to some parked cars. I couldn’t help but have a moment of dread, when a small child appeared from around the corner. She was shorter then the creature and she seemed to be absently walking straight for the dog’s open jaws. I expected terror and wailing to ensue once she noticed the obstruction in her way. Instead, upon reaching the animal, she took his leash, stood on her tip toes to pat his head, and walked him down the street.
