Later on, we ran into some other friends from church at the Farmer's Market and one of them had a friend with them with a puppy. As we stopped and chatted, I was astounded by how many strangers stopped to ooh and ah over the dog. They asked all kinds of questions. They petted. They kissed. They swarmed. Meanwhile, I was totally bored with the dog (sorry, I was!) and I began to look around and noticed so many babies. And no one was kissing the babies. No one was waving and smiling and asking the babies' names. Sure, people do sometimes, but not, it seems, when puppies are also present.
SO.... my question for you is puppy? or baby? In a situation where both puppies and babies are in supply, which one would you notice? Which one would intrigue or delight you?
