Ok so since I'm still waiting for my first puppy I am super sensitive to any dog activity around me and am becoming a backseat driver as far as being a dog mum is concerned. I'm turning into one of those single ppl who give everyone parenting advice
So out with OH on the weekend having a lovely breakfast at a cafe and a woman rocks up to meet her friends for coffee and she has obviously run to the cafe (all in fitness gear obviously a fitness freak), so that's fine except she has with her an obviously very old dog (white muzzle) who has been forced to run the entire way with her. The poor thing collapses to the ground panting it's heart out. The cafe staff bring it some water and it drinks so much so fast I think its going to throw up. 20 minutes later I've finished my breakfast and the poor dog is still panting heavily. Now I may be getting a bit judgemental but honestly this poor darling looked like it had reached the 'sleeping in front of the fire' stage of its life and I felt really sorry that it had been pushed so hard that it was obviously in distress for a long time.
