Arf! Gracie here.
Seattle Weekly published an article about bad passengers….the kind who drive bus drivers crazy.
My mom was delighted. She’s tired of all those articles complaining about bus drivers. Most, she says, are saints to put up with everything.
And, she said as she pointed to the article, “you’ll notice there isn’t one complaint here about dogs on buses!”
My mom and I have a little game. When we get to the bus stop on Bell Street, near the park, we go to the front door so we’ll be ready to leave as soon as the bus stops. We wait behind the yellow line and my mom says, “Sit!”
Of course I make a big production of sitting proudly on command. Everybody oohs and ahs.
Did you know that dogs who can do a good “sit” have higher self-esteem than those who don’t? Well, my self-esteem is over the top.
My mom has many issues (from the canine perspective) but self-esteem isn’t one of them. She always says to the driver (and anyone in hearing distance): “Now, isn’t this a well-behaved dog?”
