Okay, okay, they’re not in a bar, they’re just outside one. They all three met there, and proceeded to sniff butts in high style. I did get the akita’s name (Juneau, age three and a half, a boy) because I had to ask about the breed. I had never seen an akita with husky/malamute coloration before. Neat!
Also, I think the briard might well be Shamus, who was first posted here three years and one day ago!
