If Goldilocks came to the shelter to adopt a dog, Linus would be the one she would choose. After going for a walk she would say, “This one is too fast. This one is too slow. Linus is just right.” When on a hike in the woods she would say, “This one pulls too hard. This one just won’t move. Linus is just right.” When introducing them to her friends she would think, “This one jumps too much. This one is too scared. Linus is just right.”
Linus IS just right. Now all he needs is for his own Goldilocks to come to find him.
