It takes all kinds...

So, I have another customer story for you, and I promise, this is a good one.

Now, I'm all about pets. I love dogs and cats, and wish I had some pets of my own. I sometimes even gush over the really cute ones.

That being said, I didn't really appreciate the lady who brought her dog into the store on a busy Sunday. Maybe it's one thing to have the dog in one of those carry-on type bags where the pooch is just kind of along for the ride, but this dog was not in one of those handy bags. Mostly, the lady was carrying it around, but at some points, the dog (though attached to a leash) was running around on the floor!!! Ok, seriously, I think you can get away with this at PetCo, but our clothing store is NOT PetCo.

Anyway, at one point, the Dog Lady is in the fitting room, and you can see the dog is lying on the floor watching her. I am about to let another customer into an empty fitting room, but always knock on the door to make sure there isn't another customer inside.

Real Librarian: **knock, knock**

Dog: *WOOF WOOF WOOF WOOF*

Dog Lady: No, no... Use your inside voice!!

Yup, that's what she said. She told her DOG to use it's INSIDE voice. For a minute there I thought I might be in the library...

Seriously? Who lets their dog run around in a clothing store! People are bizarre.

There was some commercial where a woman tells her dog to 'use their inside voice.' That's funny but seriously, why was she allowed in the store with a pet? So many people have allergies and who wants pet hair on new clothes? Sounds like it's time to post a sign on the door.

That's hilarious! I love that I can take my dog to Petco, but she freaks out enough there, I can't imagine trying to take her anywhere else-that's crazy. I love my dog, but I wouldn't take her shopping with me.

Totally bizarre! Why in the world would someone bring their dog with them to shop like that.
