Excited Lady at the gas pump


A CALMER LADY.
Lady and I stopped at a gas station today on the way home from the dog park. After I bought the gas and got back into the car, I reached back to pet Lady. That's when she turned on me.

She started licking my neck and my face and the edge of my ear, over and over and over. A guy at the next pump over looked over and didn't bat an eye. He just went on and pumped gas.

She's licked me before, but never like that. She must have licked me for two minutes. I guess she was happy to go to the dog park; or to get gas.

NOTE: Lady passed on Sept. 17, 2016, one of the worst days of my life.
