BazingaDog in a Salomon store! What did 'he' buy? :)
Speedcross 4. He has great taste. He also checked out the winter apparel.
There was a 6-year-old boy who was nearly in tears when his Mom finished shopping and wanted to leave the store. He had been chatting me up and patting BazingaDog, and he didn't want to leave. So sweet. Another man came up to discuss how good B-Dog was with children and was interested to learn that we don't have kids, and he doesn't either. He's looking for a rescue dog to train as a hospital therapy dog so I gave him info on the Northern Dogs Project where AdventureDog came from. Shopping with a dog made me a Human Magnet.
Normally I would say that a dog is an easier Human Magnet than a baby, but currently you might have it harder with a dog.
Lukas smiles so nicely that you must be waving away admirers all the time!
So glad to hear that he got to go out and get some stimulation/attention. That will help a lot if you can take him places. We have several hardware chain stores that also allow dogs, which is useful! Is he good in the car about not getting too worked up and injuring himself? Our dogs sometimes can get worn out just from riding in the car, and that's good stimulation, too.
Because he weighs 90 lb and is not allowed to jump into the car right now (not that he's ever made that easy), we've been avoiding car rides for the past 2 weeks. His tibia was cut in two and re-attached with plates and screws so I was afraid of messing that up when I lifted him.
But I had to take him back to the surgeon for a check-up so we were already out for a drive - and they said he was healing well, which was great news. It is still risky for him outside our home since he might try to jump up or play with another dog or person. It's hard enough keeping him from playing with AdventureDog (who seems traumatized by all this btw). B-Dog's world can expand a little over the next 4 weeks until the official post-surgical X-rays can tell us more. Until then, he still spends most of his time resting in a confined space, poor guy.
