Avery loves our Golden Retriever, Brutus. He is limited to being in the kitchen, but Avery spends quality time loving on our dog. Believe me, he has an affinity for her as well. He loves to lick her feet . . . ewww, but Avery loves it. She hugs him, lays on him, and points (rather pokes) at his eyes. She loves to try and touch his paws, which really annoys him, but he lets Avery poke and prod all she wants. These two certainly are a pair.
