Crimson is a people person.
Well, technically she’s a dog so I guess that makes her a people-dog.
Psychologist Clive Wynne might tell you that Crimson’s affection for others can be attributed to how dogs have evolved over time to be the social butterflies that they are.
“[Dogs have] an abnormal willingness to form strong emotional bonds with almost anything that crosses their path,” Wynne told The New York Times. “And they maintain this throughout life. Above and beyond that they have a willingness and an interest to interact with strangers.”
Crimson has been this way since she just a puppy.
People are Crimson’s favorite thing.
She actually likes people more than she likes other dogs.
“Her personality is outgoing toward every person. She loves people more than she loves other dogs,” her mom told The Dodo. “Not to say she doesn’t like dogs, she just really loves human friends. She will do anything for some love, attention and food.”
But there’s one human in particular that Crimson is really fond of.
And that’s Crimson’s neighbor, Susan.
Kyndra started to notice that Crimson was spending more and more time sitting in the backyard near a hole in their fence.
When she saw a hand appear through the hole, she realized why this was Crimson’s favorite new chill spot.
It’s the place where gets her pets from.
Their neighbor found comfort during the pandemic by petting the pup through the fence.
So, now Crimson will often just wait around by the fence until Susan comes by to give her some pets.
“I oftentimes find Crimson patiently waiting by the hole, and sometimes I have to tell her Susan isn’t coming,” Kyndra said. “As far as how often Susan pets Crimson through the hole — it’s weather dependent because we don’t always let Crimson outside when it’s too cold, but I would say at a minimum a few times a week.”
Kyndra says she was more than happy to learn that Crimson got to share a little love with Susan who lives alone.
“We had met Susan before she started doing this, but loved her more when we realized what she was doing,” Kyndra said. “We talk with Susan when we are outside and we know she lives alone, so it makes us feel good she has a little bright spot in her day with Crimson. For Christmas, we brought her some baked goods and got a picture of the two of them together.”
Kyndra also recorded a little video of Crimson and Susan’s friendly affair which ends up looking pretty hysterical from Kyndra’s point of view where she sees half of Crimson’s body sticking out through the fence.
That video ended up going viral with more than 31,700 views on YouTube.
“Friendship overcomes any barriers,” wrote one commenter.
“That is so sweet!!!” said another.
