This is Boo. She is waiting for her dad.
Her dad is homeless. They hang out at North York Centre station a lot. Sometimes he leaves his post. She always wait for her dad to come back. Her leash is not tied to anything, but she waits. She's really attached to her dad. She never looks lethargic like those vacation tigers, or skinny like the puppy mill dogs. She seems healthy, and happy most of the time. Except when her dad is away from her sight. She has a minor skin irritation on her toes. I think she has allergies. .
I waited with Boo for dad to come back. For about 20 mins. During that 20 mins, I saw 3 different people giving a meal to her (legit dog food!). Weirdly, they were all women. When her dad came back, she was ever so happy to see him. .
See, the thing is, I felt sad to see her skin irritation. But I was happy to see how she was so happy. So I left them feeling happy, gaining a tiny bit of faith in humanity...
But I still scolded him for leaving her unattended.... 😒
