MOM, a week or two ago
I met an acquaintance who has a service dog.
Big strapping young male black Labrador Retriever, the dog is.
Well and expensively trained, knows what he ought to do.

I guess I am an evil influence on dogs like this one.
When I greeted man and dog,
I went down into a kneel-crouch to say hello to the dog,
who had his service-dog harness on.

And right away the dog's "inner puppy" came out,
and he wanted to PLAY PLAY PLAY!
So now I have to stay a discreet distance from my acquaintance and his service buddy,
because my very presence
makes the dog want to jump on people and
bounce up and down,
and bark, and lick faces, and all that.

Naughty, naughty me.
