Today is Friday 10th June

The day has started bright and sunny. We have nowhere to be and nothing on the calendar so have a free day! Hurrah.

We might walk up into town this morning to give Maya some more exposure to people and traffic. It will be the furthest we’ve walked her in any one go and we will need to rest up once we get there, so hopefully we can either sit outside and have a cup of coffee or go into one of the cafes where dogs are allowed. That is one thing that’s nice about our town, there are several places you can do that as well as some of the shops.
A little while ago, it was announced that one particular retailer was now allowing dogs into their stores other than guide or assistant dogs. We’ve taken Maya in on several occasions and the staff have come to know her. She is usually well behaved and there are a couple of aisles with notices to say no dogs which is fair enough. She knows where the pet food aisle is though and where to poke her nose. We were in a different town and wanted something from this chain but there were no notices up about dogs so I went in to ask.
‘Only if you can carry it,’ the assistant said, so laughing, I pointed to Maya outside and said ‘Fat chance.’
They didn’t have what I wanted anyway, but are running down their stock as they are closing at the end of this month due to cutbacks. To be honest, in all the years we have been in there, it has been extremely rare they actually had what I was looking for, and this ranged from dog biscuits and chews to their own brand of toothpaste and bandages.

Wishing you all a good day. Take care and keep safe.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    There are so few stores here that permit any animals other than service dogs. Even then the rule is 4 on the floor meaning that if the dog is not performing a task then it isn’t a service animal and thus not permitted… I know that isn’t the same in other cities…

    • Here if they are assistance dogs, they have to be wearing their official jackets. Maggie had a yellow jacket with DEAF stenciled on it and people thought she was an assistance dog and we were deaf. We said it was she who was deaf, but some places still let her in.
