We were having a fun day. I got to chase the ball first thing in the morning, then we went to the Doctor's office with my big buddy, we went to a restaurant where everyone admired me... well, not in an obvious way. Silently, but a dog can perceive admiration using special canine senses.
We went to Walmart and I almost got run over by a cart pushed by a woman with an infant in a car seat! I'm sure she admired me too, once she quit growling about us being in her way.
We shopped at BestBuy next. My person and our big buddy got human things and "paid" for them, whatever that means.
As we left, the guy in yellow at the door stopped us to ask whether I had SD ID. My person explained the law that ID is not required. The man rolled his eyes and we left.
My person decided that that would not be the end of it. While our buddy went to another store, we went to the car and got a card made by PSDS that has National law and CA law and the 800 number for the Americans with Disabilities hotline.
We returned to BestBuy and my person put on a smile and handed the man the card. She said she knew that there was a lot of mis-information out there and that this might help him and his coworkers.
He looked it over, and thanked her, saying that some people said one thing and others said something entirely different. My person commiserated, and they parted very pleasantly.
We rejoined our big buddy at the next store over, where I was greatly admired (again, silently).
My person thinks I've been to too many pet stores lately, because I seem to think that each check-out staff is going to give me a treat.
Well, duh! That's all part of admiration of Dog.

Sounds like a fun day. Of course I am sure everyone admired you, who wouldn't. That was nice of your mom to educate the man. Remeber all the fun we had at IKEA??
yeah..... treats at check out *yum* :o)
Woof! I've been a little naughty at the checkouts too, I always stare excitedly at the cashier hoping they have something yummy. Mom doesn't look very pleased when I do that. ;0P
