Although socialization is a HUGE aspect of bringing up a puppy, Dickens can be too social as he expresses his excitement a la mouth, rather than licks of hello. He also shows his delight in another way, being male, which can be off-putting. (If ya know what I mean!).
I needn't have worried. Dickens showed himself in fine form by kissing Katie and showing his exhuberance. He should. She returned his greeting with back and belly scratches. The scene pleased me to no end. Katie's an amazing lady as is her mother. I'm lucky they've included me in their family. Truly blessed.
Katie took a few shots of Dickens in action. Here they are:
