WINNER OF THE AWARD FOR MOST USEFUL THREAD
AT THEDADDY.ORG FORUM MEET 2006
I have to meet a dog on Friday, and I have to make it like me. Well, it will be better if it likes me, because I will be staying in the same house as it all weekend and if it takes a dislike to me it might not be nice. I will moreover be wearing a fairly expensive and newly purchased dress on Saturday (to go to a wedding in) and so I don't want to antagonise the dog to the extent that it poops on my dress/claws the dress/does sthg bad to the dress.
So, the situation is this: the dog is called Mr Flash (he has a lot of middle names but I can't remember all of them, one of them at least is Gryphon or Griffin), and apparently he tends to take a dislike to people if he meets them inside his house (he lives in Lincoln), as he sees them as a threat. So I am going to be introduced to him outside his house. He is a relatively elderly dog. I am not really a dog person. I've never spent a whole weekend with a dog before. I was once scared by a black dog when I was a small child (Mr Flash is black with a white chest). I once accidentally trod on my friends shitzu. I don't really know how to make dogs like me, other than giving them bacon etc. (and, as a vegetarian, I shie away from carrying raw bacon upon my person - unless absolutely necessary)
Does anyone have any ideas or advice? There must be ways to ensure that dogs like you - I could just ply him with dog treats, but he might see through this as a blatant ploy to win his affection, and sneer at me & my ways.
