Imagine having a super sensitive nose and being enclosed in a room with baked goods which are inaccessible.
Imagine spending four hours without any toys (or electronics).
Imagine being surrounded by friends, but not allowed to run around or play.
Imagine having to go outside to use the bathroom.
Imagine every time you are napping, the door opens and a bell sounds.
Imagine needing to remain calm when meeting excited people.
Saturday was a perfect day. It was cold and rained all day. It was a perfect day to spend in a warm bakery with smell of baking bread and cookies wafting through the air. The only thing that could make the Silly Yak / Bread Barn experience better were caring hosts and dog-friendly customers, which were also provided. Note: The Silly Yak will be donating 10% of the sales this Thursday (12/8) to Custom Canines.
Cooper, Brillo, Packer, and Pilot spent the better part of the day greeting customers and napping, while we humans provided Custom Canine information and sampled delicious gluten-free products. We worked hard on proper greeting etiquette - four on the floor and calm. No surprise, Cooper did much better during the last three hours. The dogs were well-behaved even with all the distractions.
