Our dogs never act up when they are with me. Whenever BD takes the dog somewhere outrageous behavior ensues. BD took Sammy in for his spa day and as he was finishing up with the groomer another patron with 2 big labs came in. Well, Sammy assumed they were there to cause havoc and naturally lurched out BD's arms and onto the back of the closest lab. As Sammy is not very well toned and kinda fat and round he was not able to hang on and subdue the lab. He fell off while snarling and defending his dad.
The lab took one look at Sammy and gave him the loudest RUFF ever heard. One ruff.
Sammy sat down and stared at this paragon of doggie manliness with a look of awe and wonder.
Best behaved labs ever.
