As I have posted before, I have a soon to be 7 month Shih-poo. I am wondering if anyone else has had problems with cute little dogs and strangers who think it is quite ok to call the "cute little puppy" over to see them or just walk up and start petting her. Perhaps, I am just getting crotchety in my "old age". I never had this problem when we had our black lab. Even when you ask people not to do this, they seem to ignore and insist on proceeding. It is not that I don't appreciate that people think she is a sweet little puppy but I do wish they wouldn't be so forward. Am I making any sense? Does anyone else have this problem and if so, how do you handle it?
