My husband sometimes complains that he is a "non-person" when we are out and about with a Future Leader Dog puppy. Seems everyone in our county knew FLD Dutch. I was the "dog lady" on the other end of the leash and Andy was just "that guy" with me.
Even now, puppy-less, people look under our table on Sunday mornings when we are having breakfast in our local family restaurant. "No puppy?" they'll ask. So I understand when Ricky tells me that ever since having a black lab puppy around he has lost "status" in the prison.
"When I walk down the aisle," he says, "guys say ''s'up Bear?' They don't say 's'up Rick?' anymore."
