"Can I Pet Your Dog?"

·2 mins
I get asked all the time by strangers, something to the effect of “Can I pet your dog?”. People see her, think she’s cute, and feel a sudden strong urge to touch her. Some people will just reach out without asking, but the majority of people ask first. My pup at the Union Square dog run in Manhattan I don’t object, but I’m not sure my dog always enjoys it when people put their hands on her, or in her face.
