My nephew graduated from high school this spring, so there was a big family gathering. Most of them knew I have a service dog, but none had met Centy yet. I parked my Blazer and got out, Centy moved to a heeling position, and someone asked how I could drive (after all, I had a "Seeing Eye dog").

The son of one of my nieces--cute little guy, just a toddler--walked up and proceeded to stick his hand in Centy's mouth. Someone asked my niece if she was worried by that and she said, "No, he's just a little boy and that is a very big dog." (We did have an impromptu "how to pet a strange dog" class for the kids.)

One of my sisters-in-law is convinced Centy is not a purebred because she is a blanket back, and doesn't have a sloping backline. According to her, I have a "GSD-Rottweiler cross." I can't wait til she meets my sable, Z.

I had a guy down the street say " when are you gonna breed your dogs, I want a pup from those two". Well.....there both spayed females, so that's not gonna happen.

Once I was walking my 6 month old Arexa with her ears taped so that they would stand and the neighbor said "wow her ears look like antennas, when do they come off" I said "when she gets good reception"

A little kid asked me one day of my first GSD," Is that an English Bulldog?"

When I first got my blue merle sheltie as a very small puppy, we ran into a little boy (2 or 3?) and his father. The father asked if they could pet the puppy, and I said yes.

The little boy looked terrified of him and said "Woof! Woof!", (It took me a few seconds to realize he meant "wolf")

And his dad goes, "No, it's okay, buddy, it's just a baby puppy." And the little boy reaches out and gently starts petting him, saying "Cob!" (cub). It was one of the cutest things I have ever seen.

These are all awesome LOL

I had some random older guy insist Lola WAS a husky mix... actually, I get that a lot because she is redish and black.... or rottweiler mix, that's a popular one .

I also had a woman ask me if her ears were cropped. lol

My blue heeler/border collie mix often gets the coyote thing, and though the weirdest question I've got about him is, "Is that a dog?" more than once (2 times in drive-thrus, once in person)...what else would he be?

With Hector, the funniest is, "Does he bite?" but that's only if you don't know him. He looks scary but he's the gentlest beast ever.

What's struck me as funny lately is that over the 12 years that I had a wolf-husky cross, I kept having people come up and tell me that I had a lovely German Shepherd I had.
