Doggie Slut

I went out for coffee with Kat on a dreary cold day (hard to believe NOW that it was only about two weeks ago!). We are usually joined by her new Chihuahua puppy but it was too cold for her so I brought Mabel along.

I was simply amazed at what a crowd pleaser she is. Ever since I've owned rotties ( a dozen years now!), I've never been approached by an Asian woman. In fact, until this day, the reaction has been dramatic screaming and fear. On this day, a group of a half dozen Korean women stopped and petted her. They asked questions and were just in love! And every time they passed the busy corner we were sitting on, they stopped and did it again!

Mabel ate it up!

And then there was the guy in a wheelchair. I got up to open a door for him. (Having spent some months in a wheelchair, it still amazes me that people behave as if a wheelchair-bound person never needs help. It feels like the attitude is, You're sitting down. Life MUST be easy!)

The guy kept circling us and finally asked about the girl. He rolled over and petted her and the brat tried to climb in his lap!!! (This is something I had a huge problem with when I was in a chair!) I got her down and she tried again minutes later.

The guy must have felt sorry for her. Before I knew what happened, he had slid out of his wheelchair (he wasn't paralyzed...just many surgeries) and was cuddling with Mabel on the ground. Look at the brat, in a total stranger's lap, soaking up the love.



Special thanks to Kat for her discreet photos.

yeah, "doggie slut" is what I think every time my Hound of the Baskervilles practically collapses at the feet of strangers when we're out on a walk.

I think people are afraid to open doors for people in wheelchairs because maybe once they tried to do it and the wheelchair-bound person snapped "I can do it!"-that's happened to me once or twice. I open doors anyway.

Miss Mabel would SURE stop traffic here in South Korea. I've never seen a dog her size here. How about a visit and we'll test that theory.

I LOVE that bottom picture. Mabel looks like she's about to melt from the pleasure of the scritches.
