    DefaultThe part I hate about bringing Lucy with me when we travel

    people have to critique my dog.
    "What is she?"
    she is a Yellow Lab
    "are you sure?"
    yes
    "Are you sure she isn't mixed with something?"
    I am positive. She looks different because she has liver pigment.
    "How come her coat is so thin?"
    she doesn't have a proper double coat.
    "She is sooo small!"
    She is within standard. She is 62 lbs.
    "My Lab weighs 100lbs!"
    and then people want to let their kids poke and maul her. : which I don't allow...
    you can pet her gently but as soon as the kids start poking and hanging on her...I ask them to stop.
    Some parents get miffed but too bad.
    It bothers me more because I am ultra sensitive.

    Most encounters are wonderful and I often meet and talk with very nice people and share dog stories but it is the few more negative ones I seem to remember most.

    Are you really sure she's all lab?
    Why, yes. I am.
    Well I have a yellow lab and she weighs 1,500 pounds. She's mostly Shi+ Soo, though. Still, she's AKC certified, and that's what counts. Yes indeedy.

    My version of this common conversation goes like this -

    What kind of dog is that?

    A lab.

    Are you sure?

    Pretty sure.

    Is he pure bred?

    Uh huh.

    Are you sure?

    Yep, he's just a darker yellow lab.

    He doesn't look like a lab. He looks more like a cross between a boxer and a lab. I know, because I have a lab in the car.

    Oh, ok. See ya.

    I get the ugly stares and glares because Maggie LIKES AND PREFERS riding in the trunk! We sometimes let her out through the trunk and people actually walk up to me and tell me they will turn me in to animal control for keeping my dog in the trunk. (Yes, we have the seats down that go all the way through to the front, but she likes the trunk!)

    I think it's funny, but I guess some people don't think so.

    Everyone's an expert. Doesn't that just burn your butt? It does mine, like you wouldn't know dog's breed etc. What morons. Ok, I've had a bad day but geezohpetes, it doesn't take a genius to recognize a lab. If you don't know acurate facts, please keep your mouth shut. Wheewww.

    He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.
