A joyful Galileo

A joyful Galileo

Galileo is an archetypal self-starter.

He requires minimal stimulation. His excitement comes from inside but can find its focus in a rustle or a twitching leaf or practically anything small enough to suggest he’d be competent to hunt it.

Like a kitten, he’s quite capable of patting something into life and then believing in it.

He goes outside late at night to frolic among the moon shadows, safe in the knowledge that no Bad People are about.

There’s enough joy in this dog to light up a good-sized light bulb.
