I don't think I have ever been as proud of Tal's behavior in a public place as I was today.
I took him to the same store I took him to about a month ago to buy his food. I decided to use his pinch collar in case some little kid wanted to take his toy I got him (yes I got Tal a new toy) and generally get him really worked up.
He has never behaved better than he did today. And one of the best things was he learned by being, well at least semi calm, he got lots of petting and attention! And it started with a lady coming up to me and she had a fit over his coat. She was very complimentary of him.
Funny thing was a lady ahead of me in line said I see you found your dog. I am like, excuse me? She said she saw him out loose. I said not him...we have been together all day. Besides he is never out of my sight.
Then...and here is the kicker...she said well he looks like the one I saw, it was small and looked like a weiner dog. : Sorry, I couldn't resist, and said well he is small I guess..he only weighs 90 lbs. The girl who was the cashier was trying awfully hard not to laugh and the man behind me complimented Tal and said he looks like a pruebred Lab. I just said he is and I've had him since he was 7 weeks.
And Tal just stood there wagging his tail soaking up all the attention! Even got a treat out of it, courtesy of the girl at the cashier stand!
Good boy Tal! And good boy for not gettin' upset at bein' called a wiener dog :-X
Good boy Tal.
Good boy Tal
WTG Tal. You are such a good, good boy!
That was one strange lady! : I bet she was jealous of Tal being such a handsome good boy.

Tal IS a good boy. All that training has become second nature for him by now, hasn't it.

Way to go, Tal! That woman either needs glasses, or has a couple of screws loose!

Well most of the time! I had gotten pretty lax with it using all the bad weather as an excuse. But since we have been able to get out and walk more, I have been really hitting it hard with how he walks on leash. I am so proud of him I could burst! not that you can tell or anything like that!Originally Posted by PaddysmomThat part especially cracked me up! Especially since it is a farm supply place and they sell lots of tools! Maybe she should check out the hardware section of the store to see if they have the right size! lol. Sorry this one was just toooo good to resist!Originally Posted by AmazonGold
weiner dog?! haha... i don't think she could have been any more off. a 90-lb lab and a weiner dog.. haha
LOL at wiener dog. It must have been hard to keep from laughing out loud. Maybe the lady really didn't know her dogs. Ya think?!
Oh and good boy Tal for being so well behaved.
