Meg in the Bushes

Charlie is not flustered by a dog named Meg


Meg is the name of a leash-less dog who appeared, rummaging in the bushes, just before Jim and Charlie were about to get on their bikes for a bike trail ride in Jersey horse country on Monday. Charlie did not see her at first, then he did.

He kept his right eye on Meg while shifting just so subtly to the left as she glanced in his direction. Then he got on the bike and, with his eye still on her (Meg was good-sized), Charlie pedaled off behind Jim and I heard a woman's voice calling 'Meg! Meg! Meg!'

Charlie may never entirely get over his wariness of dogs, but he's learning to manage it.
