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.
Addy is definitely a people person–uh, pupcicle. She loves everyone…except teenage girls. Why? Because when they see her, they like to let out ear shattering squeals. 70% of the time it’s out of fear. 30% of the time, it’s out of excitement. 100% of the time, it hurts my ears–so I can only imagine how painful it is for her.
And any time we are ambushed by a gaggle of teenage girls, poor baby girl tries to hide behind my legs for protection…which is about as effective as a giraffe trying to hide behind a zebra.
