There are now two different people at the daycare I take Buster to who have requested that I let them know when I'll be bringing him in, because they have shy/timid dogs who usually just sit in the corner by themselves, but when Buster's there he spends the whole day playing with them.

He does the exact same thing at the dog park—finds dogs that seem scared or overwhelmed and tries to draw them out of their shell—and it just makes me so proud and happy. I have such a wonderful little guy!

(Of course, occasionally he also turns into a big bullying jerk for no reason I can fathom—some dogs just seem to bring that out in him—but it's the wonderful part I'm focusing on now).
