I’ve seen this guy walking around my neighborhood for a long while. Every time I see him with his cadre of dogs, I smile inside and out. And notice that he too, always seems to be smiling. But I’ve always hesitated to stop him to say hi because his hands are so full.
But I finally stopped him on Spring Park Avenue the other day to introduce myself. His name is Luis and he dog walks for Tails, a pet supply store in Jamaica Plain that also offers day care. It’s Luis’ job to walk the day care clients multiple times a day. It’s obvious that he really enjoys this task, and cares about his canine charges.
