I have gotten compliments on Gazira before, mostly about her coloring, but yesterday just gave me a warm-and-fuzzy....

My husband and I took the kids and Gazira to a BBQ that his Wing was having (he is in the AF). When I take her places where there are bound to be many distractions (especially food) I make sure to put her backpack on with some water in it for weight. Her backpack is red and black, and quite often she gets mistaken as a service dog.

Anyway, I had my plate of food and was sitting at a picnic table eating and feeding our 17 month old. A lady at the table behind me got my attention and asked "is that a "trained" service dog?" I said "no, she is not a service dog, she doesnt have a service dog patch on her pack" she replied "she is very well behaved, I havent seen a dog as well behaved as her, especially when food is around" I replied "thank you, I strive for all my dogs to be well mannered, I have three others at home". At the mention of striving for all my dogs to be well mannered, her eyes got <u> huge</u> which suprised me. I told my husband about it and he said "well, thats because most people now days get a dog and just put it in the backyard and dont bother to train or socialize them". I see it all the time, I guess I just never think about it because I dont do that with my dogs.

Here are some pictures of her in her backpack (sorry, I had to take them in low resolution because of the reflective tape on the pack so they are not the greatest).

What a good girl!!!!! And pretty too.

I sometimes think GSD's are held to a higher standard due to thier breed and the jobs they are known for.

Ah good girl and cute backpack. We got a backpack for Jesse too we still need to size it to him. I bet if you met Jesse you would finally say you found another well behaved dog. I have him trained regarding food: regarding cooking he lies outside the kitchen, when eating he lies at my feet and does not move.
