Waiting in the checkout line at the store today...
"Oh WOW, a dog!"...this from a very cute little boy of about five. "Can I pet?"
"Um, no, I'm sorry. He's working right now," I smile to soften the blow.
"Oh -- he BITES." (With a very serious look.)
"No, he doesn't bite...he's just working right now. It's just like school, only for dogs."
"And you're his teacher?" (...his eyes huge in amazement...)
"Yes, that's right!"
"Oh...that is AWESOME!!"...with a big smile.
Oh yes, I do get tired of the questions sometimes...but then there are fun moments too!
