Will You Be My Friend?

Another synaptic spurt from Chris Cole.

A little known canine companion of Mister Rogers was his trusty ol’ Coon dog, Blue. Whenever Mister Rogers came home ol’ Blue would let out the most beautiful, mournful wail of greeting. Faithful Blue never missed a single day of his hound hellos, but seemed honor-bound to continue day in and day out. Sometimes visitors would ask Mister Rogers what he thought about ol’ Blue’s gritty greeting. Mister Rogers would gaze at Blue, smile warmly and quietly say, “It’s a dutiful bay in the neighborhood.”
