Being a Big Dog in a Big City, Addy gets a wide variety of reactions when we are out and about. It’s usually fear. Mostly people try to disguise it, usually pretending there is a reason to suddenly cross the street. Sometimes, it’s blatantly obvious.
I’m always mildly shocked when people, especially kids, in the neighborhood are eager to meet and pet Addy. Today we met a nice family whose kids LOOOOOOVED petting Addy, all the while commenting how nice and friendly and sweet she was.
I didn’t have the heart to tell them that while she loved the attention, really she just was hoping they were going to share their doughnuts.
