I’ll be chatting today at noon here. Come join! Or if you can’t, read the transcript afterward.
About the dog petting thing: in a perfect world, all dogs would be trained to not approach people without first getting permission, and all people would be trained to ask for permission before approaching a dog. But we don’t live in a perfect world: dogs aren’t perfectly trained, people aren’t perfectly trained, and both people and dogs even if they’re trained sometimes forget their training. If you’re approaching a strange dog, it’s always a good idea to ask the owner’s permission before attempting to pet the dog. If you’re a dog owner, it’s always a good idea to be prepared for people to approach your dog without getting permission. Sometimes we (the dog owners) forget these things; we hope that the non-dog-owners out there will forgive us our lapses.
