TGIF — Dog Identity

Paula Light, at Light Motifs II, has this prompt she calls TGIF. This week , Paula says, “Please share a post with your weekend plans or your favorite David Bowie song or any other TGIF thing you like ~ and feel free to use the awesome logo Fandango found!”

For my TGIF post, I’m not going to talk about my weekend plans or my favorite David Bowie song, but I am going to use the logo and to talk about my conversation with the girl at the pet store yesterday.

Me: I need some non-rawhide chews for my dog.

Girl: we don’t carry any rawhide products. Their bad for dogs; hard for them to digest.

Me: I know. That’s why I’m interested in non-rawhide chews.

Girl: We have these No-Hide chews. Dogs love them

Me: Great, I’ll take a bunch. What other safe things have you got. Our dog has jaws of steel and she loves to chew and gnaw on things.

Girl: We have bones filled with stuff, knuckle and knee bones, and, of course, frozen raw bones.

Me: I’ll take a few of all those, too.

We went to the checkout counter where she started ringing me up.

Girl: What kind of dog do you have?

Me: I had a DNA test and she’s mostly an American Staffordshire Terrier.

Girl: So a Pitbull.

Me: Yeah. At the shelter where we adopted her they said she was a…

Girl interrupting me: Labrador retriever.

Me: How did you know?

Girl: Because everyone loves Labs and wants to adopt them. Pitbulls, not so much.

Happy TGIF, everyone.

    Actually, most of us dog lovers don’t care, but insurance companies have made it dangerous to own what they have decided are dangerous pets, so whatever your dog is, you call it something else.

    Great story! Its so true. Everyone wants labs. My son got his dog from the Humane Society and they told him it was a lab. Tail is wrong, ears are long, face like a hound but boy is he lovely! And no pitbull. Oh and my dogs just love those no hide chews. They devour them ☺️ 🐾

    Lol. She’s right, no one wants to adopt pitbulls, but I bet she’s adorable!
