When Smith went to see her son, she saw this: Dash by his side, having also put himself in downtime:
“I couldn’t stay angry for long because it was so cute the way Peyton wrapped his arm around Dash,” Smith said. “When Peyton had to go in timeout, I think Dash knew he needed his buddy.”
In a short time, Peyton’s timeout ended – and, of course, Dash’s.
This probably won’t be the last time Peyton finds himself in a little hot water. But as he navigates the path of his youth and sees all these lessons learned along the way, it is reassuring to know that his dog’s best friend will be by his side all this time.
It is clear that Dash would not have wanted it to be otherwise.
