Mixed Signals

I was in my local grocery/pharmacy/hardware/one stop shopping store earlier and so a Papillon come through the door with an older gentleman.

As they got closer I could see an orange vest on the dog.

On both sides: Service Dog
On both sides: I'm friendly, pet me

What the heck?

Sounds like someone purchased a vest online so they could take their pup shopping with them and then noticed the pretty little patches that were available also.

Re: Mixed Signals

He did have to tell the dog 3 times to sit while waiting for his Rx, and he had to do that each time he moved up in line.

Re: Mixed Signals

I think the urge to take the dog shopping took over. The gentleman needs to find a pet friendly pharmacy

Re: Mixed Signals

These were separate patches - I'm guessing that TJ is right

Not sure what you mean by that.

To me it sounds like yet one more person claiming an untrained dog as a SD.

Re: Mixed Signals

If memory serves, mjbgsd's Service Dog also has a vest that says "Ask to pet me" on it besides "Service Dog"?
