Julie Briggs’s dog Wally stole the show and attracted all the attention on his monthly visit to John Jermain Library in Sag Harbor on Friday, October 12. Besides having the opportunity to pet, scratch, and play with Wally, serious canine fans assembled in the Library’s Friends Community Meeting Room, to enjoy a presentation about canine body language by Gail Murphy, a member of the Certified Council for Professional Dog Trainers. Gail’s lively discussion explained what a dog is telling us with its ears, tail, eyes, and body position.
