I Am Easily Pleased?
Whines from the dog and not the man on the dock, I couldn't hear him.
My husband got back in the truck and told me what was said when we were pulling away. The man had a pair of bichons whom he had bred and had one puppy left and @ first was trying to sell to us. Then after he saw Dis walk around a bit he asked if we entered dog shows with him. My husband told him no we bought him as a poodle. Granted this guy was just a back yard breeder but he said he wished HIS bichons looked and acted like that. He remarked on Dispatches cockiness and how he strutted around but listened to me. (I always blame the cockiness on his human Daddy because they have the same attitude @ times but maybe that's just me?) The dock man then asked if Dispatch was neutered (yes) and then asked if we would be interested in taking his dog and TRAINING IT!!
Of course the dock foreman didn't see the scratches on my legs from Dispatch wanting up when his nails were too long, he never heard him scream like he was being killed when he was being ignored or left in a vehicle or @ home, and he never saw him after a cat. Those are just little things he does that might not be considered good doggy behavior.
So I've been telling Dis all afternoon what a well behaved show quality bichon he was, maybe it's a teeny lie but he believes me.
