How NOT To Greet A Dog

Hey Guys, 
So mom found dis, great poster on the intranet and said she just "had" ta spread it around so that lots of people could see dis. A lots of people thinks, cause I'm little dat they can pet me, but NEWS FLASH I don't even like my own mom doin much pettin other than a belly rubs. 

Howevers, mom does want to say dat, if started early you can teach a dog to  tolerate or even like the first six "bad" ways,  (dat would be Pompei) but especially with us little guys, its very scary for a big human to lean over us like dis!!! (Me an Bubbles don't like it, Bubbles will just pee and..me.. well I grab dat big fatty thing that sticks outta dare face and dat teaches them)

Ok mom says not to tell people dat cause I never have done THAT spasific thing. 
Phooey.
BUTT I would if they wouldn't even move their heads back fast enough.

When my brother Hawk was still alive, he let a lot of people know how NOT to approach a dog! Thanks for sharing that, Texas!

Also, thanks for the well wishes for Lilac's birthday! She feels like the Queen of the World today!

I agree with the 3 Doxies that we would like to make copies of this poster to send out to all of the dimwits who live nearby but chances are that they wouldn't read it or wouldn't understand any of it!
It is so great to read what dogs think about the way humans greet them! I hate to admit it but I am often guilty of #5 (getting waaay too excited about a new dog) and I should know better than to do that!

Hi Guys - we are new followers and wanted to stop by and say HI!

I grew up with doxies and my parents still have only doxies to this day - here is a post you may like I did about their current ones :)

Oh yes we totally agree. Dottie is the only one that likes it when people break all the rules, but that is because she is "special" and doesn't know any rules herself. Alven and I do not care for rude people either. We prefer people who give us our space and we will respond in kind and not bark in your face.
