For a good three hours today my day went something like this:
“Hi! Would you like some hot chocolate, a hot dog or some pulled pork? It’s a donation to help fund the Lake George Skate Plaza”
Followed almost immediately by:
“Oh my gosh, your dog is so cute! Can I take a picture of them?”
Yes, I was partly doing it because many times if you engage and show interest in something of theirs, the person is more willing to buy your product, but it’s also because I love dogs and sharing photos of ones we meet.
Halfway through the day, I wondered if I sounded creepy. I mean if I asked to take a photo of your kid, I would likely end up in jail, and for many of us our dog is like our kid, right?
I feel like there’s some dog owners code that makes taking photos of other people’s dogs OK — like a complement of sorts. It always makes me smile when someone wants a photo of Toby or, like when “Beverly Hills Chihuahua” was popular, with Toby.
Do you take, and/or share, photos of other dogs you meet?
