On the bus this morning, when I was taking Zena to obedience school, there was a kid on the bus having a fit because his mom wouldn’t let him see the dog. They were about to get off the bus, and the kid (who must have been like 3 or 4 years old) wanted to go out the front way, where we were, so that he could say “good bye” to Zena. The mom said no, and dragged her whining child out the back door instead. Thirty seconds later, while the bus was stopped to let new passengers on, that same kid ran around the side of the bus and jumped back on from the front door. Before I even knew what was happening, and before I could even think to stop him, he ran up to Zena and bopped her on the head, (I guess that was supposed to be a pat…) said, “Bye doggie!” and then turned around and ran off the bus! O__o
You know… the Pit Bull ban here may suck, but it’s at times like these I’m actually glad that my dog is required to wear a muzzle when in public, because a scenario like that could very well have provoked Zena to bite out of reaction to a strange hand suddenly coming at her face from nowhere. I bet the kid’s mom was totally pissed at him. At least, I hope so!!
Zee took it well, though. She actually seemed more surprised than anything, and kind of looked at me like, “WTF just happened??” She’s also got a new muzzle now, because the chrome one was just too awkward for her to wear. She now has a more comfortable leather “Hot Dog” muzzle, the same type as Taffy’s, (abulldogslife) only Zee’s is black with cute little silver bone studs on it. ;)
She still hates it, but at least she looks stylin’. X-D
