What do you do when your dog decides to get attention from a stranger?
As we were walking, it'd been about 40mins and Pilot had decided " Nah man, I'm done" but realized that I obviously was going to make him keep moving.
Well as we're walking, there's a homeless man sitting on a bench and as we walk by, Pilot decides the dude is his savior; Before I could react, Pilot goes right to the man and lays at his feet. The man thought it was the greatest thing ever, he lit right up and was petting Pilot, hugging him ( Pilot LOVES being hugged) and Pilot was giving him kisses and soaking up the love. I didn't want to rip Pilot away, so I just smiled and stood there for a moment, before gently instructing Pilot it was time to go home. The guy thanked me and had a big smile on his face.
Once out of ear shot I looked at Pilot and said " Well played sir", he gave me a " I know" look in return.
That was the only time he did it that day. Later on, two young girls thought he was the cutest thing ever, and they came up to me and asked if they could pet him. I was really impressed and thanked the girls for asking first, most adults don't ask permission.
So that was Pilots "stunt" for attention/ getting out of walking haha.
Has any ones poochies pulled something similar?
