Baron and the "Lick"
Me and my 5yo male GSD, Baron, had an interesting thing today in our back yard.
So, Baron met Dan (a man who is doing some work on our back deck) and his helper guy yesterday when they came to start work on the deck.
He, of course was very friendly with Dan (he knows and seems to remember him very well); but met the new guy for first time yesterday.
He was very friendly with him, although he did watch him very carefully until deciding that he was ok and then was very outgoing with him.
So today when I took him out of his run to pee and all, the guys were here working on the deck roof. So Baron seemed friendly with them so we walked (on leash) over to him and Baron wanted to say hi to the new guy(with very friendly body language) so we went over to him.
The guy started petting him and then before i could move, knelt down right in front of him, put both hands on Baron's neck and put his face RIGHT in Baron's face and was talking to him. Baron looked at him and then gave him a great big LICK!
I was astounded and couldn't believe that a stranger would do that to a big strange GSD! Then Baron started dancing around playfully with this guy!
Could have been interesting!
Sometimes our dogs do surprise us!
