The wind blows across the field of tiny flowers and it carries through the thick fur of Chino the dog. He is a one-year-old Shar-Pei who loves to play.
Across from Chino, there is a large brown horse grazing, and nearby is her foal, Duke. Only a week old, Duke seems to be a curious boy. Chino watches Duke carefully.
With tiny steps, Duke gets close to Chino. Even if Chino is older, he is still smaller. Duke doesn’t seem to have any concern for personal space, he gets right in the face of Chino.
Quickly, Chino backs away from the foal then takes a seat on the grass. He allows Duke to slowly circle him. At all times his head turns to make sure he can see Duke.
Chino can see that Duke is simply a young one who has much to learn about the world. He could certainly use a playmate to have fun with.
From his position, Chino abruptly gets up and chases Duke to see what the foal will do. As expected, Duke runs straight to his mother for support.
Duke sticks his head out from behind his mother’s legs and sees that Chino is simply playing around. He gingerly makes his way back to his new friend.
