Only My Dog Can Make Petco an Exciting Adventure.
So while I looked around for a sanitation station because Charlie had wandered upon another dog's potty place I was momentarily not following rule #2 of "ALWAYS stay on high alert and watch for people from every direction." and... BOOM.
Of all the things she could have done the one thing that sets Charlie off it if someone reaching towards him. She did just that and he didn't react? Was it the toy? Was the toy really awesome? Should I have bought the toy?
Well at this point I realized I was probably standing there with my mouth open looking like an idiot and she looks like she's going to make another move towards him when I spit out (probably sounding like a total snob) "Actually, he's not too great with strangers all of the time." She looked at me like "Okay?"
I should probably work on my way to nicely but effectively say "Stop reaching towards my dog right now or he's going to bite your hand off." Any ideas?
So after continueing to kneel is front of Charlie doing nothing for another minute or two I awkwardly say "Do you have something I can wipe my dog's pee up with?"
Did I use an awful lot of quotation marks in this post? Yes... yes I did.
Please stay tuned for the next blog post from Jessi and Charlie. Where even a trip to Petco is a thrilling adventure...
