Don't worry. I'm not going to spend another whole entire week talking about my adventure in the supermarket. But I was so excited to tell you all about the food, I totally forgot to tell you about the other dogs I saw there. Y'know, the ones who weren't stuck in bags or carts?
Yeah, them. Rocky, Roo and Lucia.
My human was afraid of another poodle incident, so she used her phone to take their pictures. Droid doesn't take pictures any better than it speaks pug, but you can totally see these other dogs were allowed to wander around like normal dogs. In the supermarket!
We met Roo near the Golden Chicken. I asked my human why he didn't have to sit in a bag and she said he must have one of those special service-dog tags. Except he didn't! He was a regular dog, just like me.
Then we met Rocky. He was over by the frozen Novelties, and not in a bag or cart. He didn't have a special tag either! My human even asked his dad about it, just in case he forget to wear it that day or something. But Rocky's dad had no idea what she was even talking about.
I was starting to think my human was making the whole special tag thing up so she could take pictures of me stuck in a bag. But then we met Lucia. She was walking around like a normal dog too -- except she had one of the special tags on her collar.
The special tags are pretty big and have a map of California on them. Kinda hard to miss. But for some reason, our supermarket doesn't check if you have a tag. This means lots of dogs get to go there. Even big ones. Like Dutch.
That's right. I could have walked around all over the store. Except my dorky human doesn't think it's cool to bring your dog into a grocery store unless you have a special tag.
Or, uh, a really good reason. Y'know, like wanting to show all your friends what the inside of a supermarket is like.
