Me: Clare, look who's here to say hello.
Clare: Max! Big dog!
Me: Yes, Max is a big dog.
Clare: Speak, Max. Speak! (as she gives him the command)
Our friends who lived in the farmhouse before us, moved next door to a house they built. Max is their dog who still comes to their old house. He is huge. 180 lbs of giant dog. I'm a little hesitate to play with Max. But Clare has no fear at this age and thinks he is just another friend.
