So, I was in the store earlier with my service dog. The lady in front of me at checkout had about $200 worth of toilet paper in her shopping cart. With an attitude she asked me what type of dog I had. I told her it was my service dog. Then she got real snarky and said “I knew that. What type of service?” I said he was a BLD. By now he was licking her face and hands and being super friendly. She said, “What is a BLD?” I told her it stood for Butt Licking Dog. She said “butt licking dog?” I said “Yeah, he had been trained to lick my butt clean because I can’t seem to be able to find toilet paper because of hoarders!” The cashier completely lost it.

Brilliant!

I’m always in awe of how dogs can be trained in so many ways to help us. A friend of mine has a dog that alerts when her blood sugar spikes or drops as she has a rare type of diabetes. Prior to getting the dog she spent three years in hospital because she had to be constantly monitored. We used to walk our dogs together around a reservoir and I’d trained mine to hop over a wall at the end of the walk and go and bath itself in the reservoir to wash the mud off. My friend would stand there saying how amazing my dog was and how she told all her friends how cool he was. All the time, she’d be stood there with a dog that could smell her blood sugar levels through her skin, alert when she needed insulin and go and find help if she became unconscious smileysmiley

After 1.5 years you still have toilet paper hoarders in NZ?

They started up again here about a month or two ago, thanks to a news report that people were starting to hoard TP again. But it seems to have calmed down a bit since then.

I don't consider a strange dog licking my face as anything I'd put up with or want in any way.
That might endanger one's privilege to own a store friendly service dog.
Does that make me "snarky"?

I'll have to pass the BLD joke along. There's a Service Dog being trained in the district right now. Very interesting to watch the dog learn what needs to be done and how to behave. Everybody in the valley is aware of this. It's a good thing for people to learn how to interact with such a working dog.

I buy toilet paper and kleenex by the case and think nothing of it but far fewer trips to the store.
Usual storage is in the back of the Burb. I bring in the shelf packs as needed.

To be fair, the only way to have a dog licking your face is to allow yourself to be in a position where the dog can physically lick your face.  So by standing upright you should be safe Steve.

That's nothing - my cat has been trained to meow at me whenever she's low on food...

No. Your cat has trained you to open a can when she meows.
