Day Fifty One 2012
















I can file this one under There's Something You Don't See Every Day. Hubby Neil and I sat down to eat lunch at Wendy's today, and these two dogs are laying there, basking in the sunshine coming through the window. Big black dog and little brown dog. I've seen service animals in restaurants before (we saw a couple of wolves in Red Lobster once that were trained to alert their owner when he was about to have a seizure). But these guys were obviously pets and companions to a young man who looked like he was carrying all his worldly possessions on his back. Although these two dogs kept eyeing my lunch, they were more well-behaved than most children I've seen. When their owner was done with his lunch, he strapped on his backpack and led his obedient buddies back out on the highway by their leashes. I hope they have safe travels.

What sweet pets! I hope they had something to eat, too. Never know what you're gonna see in Cookeville.

That is too cool! Hope they got something to eat as well. I'm surprised Wendy's let him bring them in if they weren't service dogs.

The Wendy's people seemed happy with it. A woman with a couple of kids came over and told him they had some left over food and offered it to the dogs, but the guy turned it down. I saw another customer--an older man--hand the guy some money which I thought was nice. He didn't turn that down. I don't blame him.
