Darby knows the rules, too and he's OK with it, except for kids and little dogs, both of which he loves. So when a kid asks "Can I pet your dog?" and I clear it with the parents, I'll tell him "OK, go say hi." so he can bliss out on kid scritches for a minute. I understand the feelings of the person in the article, but can't we all just get along?
