    stroke a dog

    Hello.



    What is the boy doing?
    Is he stroking a dog? Is he petting a dog?

    Thank you.

    I think he's an extremely young veterinarian performing a flea check. Or petting the doggie.

    Can I ask what made you regard the boy as a veterinarian? Isn't he way too young?
