The ill mannered dog (owner)
I took the cat to the mobile clinic Saturday morning. There was this lady who seemed to think that people like it when her dog jumps on them. I was sitting near her and the dog tried to get in my lap. I am sure I looked irritated. She finally reigned him in and apologized, but in a way that I sounded like the bad guy for not appreciating her awesome dog. Grr. I noticed that she watched that dog carefully around food though. She didn't want him to eat and ruin his chances at a cheap neuter. If that dog got anywhere near even a rock that looked tasty, she pulled him back. I got out my trusty trail mix and started snacking. I clumsily spilled a couple of nuts and raisins on the ground between me and the dog. Problem solved.
