Almost without fail when I take both dogs for a walk people that I pass will say, “What a beautiful dog.” Now mind you, I am with BOTH dogs but I know the compliment is directed towards Buster. I’m glad Kari doesn’t understand as she proudly walks by them otherwise I know she would develop a complex. I know I would.
The other day Kevin and I were walking the dogs. I was a little bit ahead of him. Kari and I passed two men and we nodded hello. Two seconds later I hear them say to Kevin, “Oh my… what a beautiful dog!” I couldn’t help myself and I stopped, looked back at them and said, “What is she… chopped liver???”
They laughed and said, “She is cute too!” (I know they were lying!)
Yesterday Kari had a vet appointment to update her shots. I knew Dr. Baker would compliment her. She was being such a good girl. We chat for a while then he asks, “How is your son’s dog doing?” “He’s a good boy”, I say.
Dr. Baker: “He sure has grown to be an extremely handsome dog.”
I’m glad Kari thought he was talking about her.
