Here's a good laugh for you all...
we get some weirdos from time to time in the store, and a lady the other day was no exception.
She came in with a beautiful Dobie. This dog was intimidating because of her beautiful bone structure and posture. She was most deff. a prime example of what the breed is all about.... so I figured, that she was a show dog.
I walked over to her, and asked if I could pet her...the owner gave me a stern look and said "well of course, she IS a show dog and IS used to being touched, if she weren't I wouldn't be showing her, and she wouldn't be winning."
After petting the dog, who had a beautiful coat as well, I asked if I could feed her a "healthy" treat. The owner agreed.. I made the mistake of telling the dog to sit... I figured that all dogs sit....especially one who is being shown...mmmboy was I wrong... I got the chewing out of a lifetime
"my dog is a westminster daughtor, and a champion of the eukunuba tournament of 19** (can't remember) She's won blah blah titles, and has been on the circut for a year, is top of her class in the state...she does NOT take commands from citizens....only from judges, maybe you should check with the owner before EVER insulting a show dog again!"
my goodness.... are all the show people like this?
