My Friend Toto
Mood:  celebratory

I've always had a little trouble with Tina's dog, Toto.  He's a tiny Yorshire terrier, a 3.5lb teacup.  We got off to a bad start when we first met and it went on for years.  He didn't trust me and I didn't trust him and it got worse and worse.  He bit me, he peed on me, and I got so mad that I hit him.  And that really made me stop and examine the situation.

For the last year and a half I've been as sweet as pie to the little guy.  I actually like him now.  It took me giving him chicken liver, taking him out for walks, and petting him gently for a long time and eventually he likes me.

Today that because apparent because I came downstairs and he ran over to me and started rolling on the floor to get petted.  For him to solicit petting from me is a big deal.  I think we're finally friends.
