Today at Petsmart I had my first "she's so small" comment. I took her in for a little bit of socialization, since I have to go to work in a bit, and to work on her walking nicely on a leash with distractions. I was walking her through the aisle, and a lady with 3 little kids stopped me. The kids wanted to pet her, so I let them, and she loved them, but then they started jumping and throwing their arms up so she would jump, so I was about to make her leave, and the mom goes, "Is ita rot mix?" I said, "she's purebred". She looked all shocked and goes "Reeeaaalllllly?" And gave me a wierd look. I said yes, and she said "Oh, she's just so small." I said "yeah, she's just a puppy, she's got alot of growing to do." I really think she thought she was a tiny adult. Normally I would just ignore it, but today, (cover your ears boys) I am having my "irritable time of the month", so I was annoyed. Ha!

I know, EVERYONE has a friend with a 150 pounder! A lady a while ago told me her friends had a 130 pound female! I wasn't as cranky that day, so I just said "oh, wow." And laughed about it later. It was just weird today, because instead of assuming she was younger than she was, this one thought she was an adult, but just not purebred. Weird.

Oh yeah, rockweiller, I love those ones. One girl, (also at PetSmart) said "Oh, a rottie. What kind is she?" I said "What do you mean?" She goes "German or American". I told her they're the same, and that she was bred in California. She just ignored me and asked if she was from good lines because her sister had a good looking male GERMAN rottie and she wanted to breed him. I never understand why people look at dogs as breeding stock instantly. She was 3 1/2 months old when that happened! Do I go up to people with their kids and tell them their6 year olds are cute, when doTHEY plan on having little ones?
