I took Kodie to Smithville (a little village near our house that has little shops) for a walk a few months ago. He had his little yellow booties on and his harness. We always get stopped a million times so people can see him and ask me tons of questions about him (they always call Kodie... a "her"). Anyway.. we were walking along and these two older women and their husbands (prob over 60yrs old) were there and loved Kodie. Well these women were feisty! The one woman bends slightly over and pulls Kodies lead up trying to get him to come up on her leg or something!! I could see his harness pullin at his little chest!! I got fired up so fast! I got nasty with her..."what ARE YOU DOING!?!! "STOP THAT!" "DO NOT PULL ON HIS HARNESS! HES ONLY 3LBS! You CAN HURT HIM!" :excl:She looks at me and goes "I want to hold him and he wont come up"..Thats all she had to say to me. I told that woman that Kodie does NOT like strangers picking him up anyway! I have never seen someone ever do that before in my life. She was basically going to use Kodies lead to pull his body up to her arms!!!!!! I'm still in shock just thinking about it. I hate stupid people! Especially if it can have the potential of hurting my BABY!
