Thanks, Lady, for letting my dog attack you!
« on: August 29, 2007, 02:55:55 pm »
Yes you read that right.
This morning Grace finally got to attack the lady down a ways from us in the parking lot. 
She was getting out of her car and heading to her place after work.  Grace dragged me over there and i tried to stop her, but the lady spoke to us and came toward us. 
I decided to let Grace go and meet her, which we did.  Grace rose up and gave her a big ole hug around the neck and sniffed in her purse and licked the water off the milk jug she had.  then the lady told Grace to sit, which she did...and she reached down with a hand that popped out of the feather boa, fuzzy end of a sweater.   Grace let that tickle her nose while the lady scratched her head.  then the lady asked for a paw.  Grace gave her 2.  :) 
after a few minutes of this and needing to leave for work soon and after getting my big ole hug from my puppy, we thanked the lady for letting my dog attack her and ran home to sniff where a cat had just been.  :) 
My dog finally got one of the neighbors.

LMAO how funny... It's nice when people understand our big dogs and don't freak out. Grace sounds like quite the charmer. :)

Oh that is too funny! Great story! Yesterday I approached a lady who was walking a big boxer boy by my house, and I was carrying my 19 month old son. I complimented her on him, and asked if he was friendly. She said he was, and she headed over. Of course, he's a boxer, so he was two paws up instantly! The lady was all embarrassed and struggling with the leash (it really was a BIG boxer!) but my son was saying "big puppy!" and we were petting him and getting slobbered on as I let him land his front paws on my forearm. He was really cool, but VERY energetic. It's too bad that people have to feel so cautious about offending people with their dogs. I assume that if people ask to pet my dog, they can handle the resulting slobber kiss or snout up the crotch or whatever.  ;D

OK...Grace has agreed to attack anyone who wants to be attacked.  :) 
i couldn't believe the 2 paw thing this morning.  she only ever gives 1 paw and that's if she really likes someone.  this lady must be AWESOME to get 2 paws. 
I've been trying to train her "Other Paw" so that when we take our harness off or put it on she doesn't keep giving me the left paw over and over when i'm trying to get her leg in or out of the leg hole.  i think she's taken "other paw" to mean..."give me both at the same time" paw.

I was curious about this post as well, sounds like Gracie can pick em.

Gracie knew this lady really needed this fur dog attack,and was only doing what was needed.

Way to go Gracie
