When Echo was about 9 months old, we had to take him on a ferry. He was very nervous, visibly so, and laying under the bench underneath me. I turned around to hand something to my husband (I was still sitting down, immediately above where he was laying). I turn back around and a guy is putting his INFANT son in my dog's face, his hands ON his face, telling him to pet the doggie. Echo didn't do anything, but I asked the guy if he was insane and told him that putting his BABY in the face of any strange dog, let alone one who was agitated, was probably the stupidest thing I'd ever seen.
The stupidity of people blow my mind. And the scariest thing is that no matter how good of a watch you keep (I was sitting ON mine, for pete's sake), it just takes a second for someone to be an idiot.
