I just dropped Pitch off for his weekend get away. There was a dog in training there, a choc field lab. (Looked a lot like HK). She was 7mos old, and seemed mellow, but I guess this is her 3rd class. So as I was leaving, I asked if I could pet her. The trainer said no, I was a bit surprised. He says to me, She isn't asking you for attention, so best not to offer her attention. He said it was like him coming up to me and giving me a hug, and not even knowing me. That I would find it very odd...he is right! I never thought of it that way. How many times people come up to me and ask to pet Pitch. Poor dog, he probably is wondering why on a daily basis So that is my Free Lesson I got from the Kennel today! Hope you all have a happy and safe Holiday weekend!
I will have my puter with me, but will be gone for a nice long weekend!
very interesting when you look at it that way, although Gracie always seems to be asking for attention...especially when a stranger or some one new is around.
