Hitch, the Magnet Dog

Hitch, the Magnet Dog.jpg

This is Hitch, who lives across the street from me. He’s deaf, but doesn’t know it. He’s also a magnet dog — anyone who sees him wants to be close to him. Sometimes if I sit on the grass, Hitch climbs onto my lap and licks my face and that’s about as fabulous as life gets. I have to be careful, though, not to do it while my dog Cagney is watching out the window, because when Cagney gets jealous, he barks and bothers the whole neighborhood. (And yes, one of Hitch’s eyes are green, and the other is blue.)
