Most Sundays we go to Brusters to get ice cream. Because our dogs are family we take them along. After all, Brusters offers items for dogs and thus is pet friendly.
Just so you know, my dog is a pitbull. She is very well trained and we always have her on a leash. While we were waiting for our ice cream I had two interactions with fellow patrons.
#1 man: hi. Can I pet your dog? Me: sure, she is friendly.
Man pets Rudie, she wags her tail. He comments about how pretty she is.
Man walks away with his ice cream.
We continue to wait for our order.
#2. Man #2 walks up says: You better keep that dog away so I don't have to hurt it.
Me: If you were to hurt my dog, you would have no reason to do so, she is nowhere close to you.
Man: well you shouldn't have brought your dog here.
Me: this is a pet friendly establishment, they offer treats for dogs. That is why she is here.
Man: snarls his lip at me
Now, when this man said this to me, Rudie was right by my side sitting, waiting for her treat. To put in perspective how well behaved/trained she is you can look at a previous post on here page and you can see that she will-- 1. Sit and wait for her sundae. 2. Grab her own bowl from the counter when the server places it on the counter and we tell her to grab it. 3. She takes it off the counter an puts it on the ground to eat it.
She is very well behaved and was not doing anything that warranted his asinine comments.
I am sharing his with the hope that people will be a little more tolerant to others and their pets. To some people pets are like family. Rudie is like my child and I didnt appreciate how he spoke to me about her.
In addition Pitbulls are not the devil and should not be discriminated against because of their breed.
🔥 How we feel about the heatwave 🔥

doggos can't jump gate, so plot another way ..
I was trying to get Linc to jump over the gate. He jumps onto our SUV which is higher. 🤷🏻♀️ But leave it to old wise Noah to find a better way. I couldn't turn the iPhone stand quick enough. 🤣🤣 Did they just become best friends? 😮
