Although Spotty is a very happy and contented dog, some of the things that we do to him make him sad. He is very patient and waits until the photographs are taken with his doleful face. He is most sad when we leave for the day and puts on his mopey face and pulls in his tail and sulks behind the gate. When we come back he leaps up and down behind the gate wagging his tale furiously. He has obviously forgiven us for our earlier fashion transgressions.
