Default Funny thing happened.......

Yesterday (Sunday) I went to my gun club to shoot a few rounds of skeet and decided to take Bailey along for the ride. I parked the Tahoe with the rear toward the fields so she could watch and I can keep an eye on her.
There were several new folks there and I found myself shooting with 4 guys that I didn't know. As we progressed around the course I would look over at Bailey in the back of the truck and give her a hand signal to indicate stay, and "good girl".........
After doing this several times one of the new guys pulled me aside and asked "how long has your dog been deaf"???????
I couldn't help but laugh as I explained that she has excellent hearing and that's just how I communicate with her when at a distance or in a crowd. He found this to be absolutely amazing and I wound up explaining how many hand signals she knew and what they meant.
Simple to her and I, but obviously a mystery to others.........

Bronco...just so you'll know....there are a couple of hand signals that women (especially) don't take to very well. You might try using ALL of your fingers when you wave to her.

She can't read yet so she doesn't know it's not there. Once she figures out how to read then I'm going to give her a book on speaking Spanish and put her on the payroll as an interpreter........

I wouldn't put her on the payroll, you'll have to pay taxes then. However you could probably get away with hiring her as a minority contractor (she's both brown and female) to be your company mascott.

A well trained dog is a thing of beauty. Not that I would know anything about it, with my wayward but lovable mutts.
