Shake, my friend

Nearly every day Satwant, our Sikh neighbor, goes out of his way to finish up his daily stroll by cajoling a paw shake out of Casey. Believe it or not, Case has made a point of dropping everything - even putting a Frisbee toss on hold - to cater to our cul de sac elder. While Satwant's English is limited, he has mastered a heavily accented “Shake, my friend”, and our guy never disappoints.  


  1. Very cute indeed. Indian people aren't always comfortable around dogs so good to see that Casey has changed things just a tiny bit.

  2. You're so right, Craig. Satwant's wife and mother-in-law keep their distance, but he's just amazed that Casey will occasionally initiate this gesture, sometimes crossing the lawn to extend his paw on the sidewalk.
