But there are some people I will never understand. I have met people, who, when I tell them Dante has to sit before being petted, start yelling "Sit, sit, sit!" Thanks for your concern, but I am quite capable of getting my dog to sit. I try to be a good ambassador of myself and CCI, but we have rules that pet dogs don't have to follow. If he is having a hard time focusing, and is jumping up, he can't meet people. Most understand, but some look at me like I just insulted them. Don't get me wrong, I love to talk to people and let them meet Dante, but in the end, he is here to work for me.
We haven't been inside any public places, but even just walking, or in parking lots, etc., we get stares and surprised looks. That doesn't bother me at all. But I don't know if I'll ever get used to some of the comments. Like the lady who drove by us: Yes, I know how cute my puppy is without you yelling it out your window as you drive by! She didn't even sound sweet, like really yelling. Or the grown man who was making kissing noises at him. Really!?!?!? What am I supposed to say to that??
Dante doing a great "sit" - and staying - in the Walmart parking lot. (This
is also his "goofy sit" with both legs off to one side)
My favorite comment I have heard thus far, wasn't even directed at me, it was just said by a passerby-er: "Look, ______, it's a super dog!" Yes, Dante, you're going to be a super dog alright!
