I've said this before, but Herbie is a rescue who is scared of everything. I'll never forget the time early on when he jumped about five feet upon encountering a Dandelion. He had been kept in an outdoor closet and never introduced to anything. Herb still has a hard time with other dogs, but he wants desperately to be their friend. He watches our neighbor Scooter out the window like he is searching for a long-lost brother.
In honor of Herbie's birthday and other dogs who need our help, check out Woofstock next weekend from the Greenville Humane Society; once you buy a ticket, you get unlimited beer samples from local breweries! Herbie's a little too high-strung to go along, but it would be really fun to take a dog. :)
