Savvy gets a drink of water with a little help from Randy's 3 1/2 year old granddaughter, Eva, at a softball game.
Despite my initial anxiety over my big dog being around children, (he wasn't really socialized with many kids from a young age) Sav has surprised me considerably by being a perfect gentleman around Eva. I still get nervous when he's zooming around acting crazy, but Eva has learned to give him commands and he seems to understand that she is more vulnerable than the rest of the us. He will even walk gently on a lease for her (being constantly supervised, however), which he refuses to do for me! Instead of just tolerating her, he seems to be actually forming a bond with her as she grows older and is able to better communicate with him.
