OK, I don't normally do this, but this one just kills me. It's those little subtleties that make it.
1) How carefully
he puts it down.
2) How little one looks back, TWICE, to make sure it's OK. A sense of checking on "it's ok" at that 12-16 month age. Incredible.
3) How carefully he picks it back up, looks into the face to make sure it's ok, and just goes on, non-chalantly.
4) Of course, the elder statesman - what he does - doesn't surprise us dog people, does he? He's obviously in costume. That is REALLY a German Shepherd, in costume.
See it a few times, to see the subtleties
