What is wrong with people?
A lady just walked into my work (a private dog park with large office) to get some information about bathing her Irish Wolfhound. As she's walking in, my two are greeting her, and she's mumbling something about "Good thing I'm good with canines!".. over and over. She seems a little off.
We talk, yada yada, and she starts playing with the dogs. Ok... until she grabs Frag by the face with both hands and shoves her face into his giving him kisses, as he's squinting and backing away. I said something along the lines of Ma'am please don't grab him like that, he doesn't know you and you should never stick your face in a strange dog's face, it's really unsafe. My bosses husband was here watching, horrified by her actions and backed me up (usually I don't have to be rude to people) and she said Oh, I'm sorry, I didn't think I was a stranger to him anymore. I said, you've been in here for less than 5 minutes and you think you're best friends with my dog? My boss's husband laughed and she said "I guess not..." and finished up her visit and left.
The other day we had a visitor who grabbed another dog the same way and shoved her face all over the dog, only to come up and say, "You know, I really shouldn't have done that, but he was so cute!"
What is it with "dog" people!?
