I know when I cry - I'm not crying over Walmart (please) I am crying because of this illness that is very difficult to deal with socially, mentally & physically. ONCE someone starts to speak to me and they witness the side of my face and neck pulling- they usually shut up.
Too late. I was assured by the store manager: employees wold be spoken to and reminded not to address a service dog- clearly he did not get to all of them.. rather than cry I came home and drew.
A simple little toon that I will be walking over - hopefully, later today.
2 -one for the mens staff/change room and one for the women (if they have that?)
I threw in the treat them like everyone else - 'ignore them' - for a giggle
I am after all a cartoonist.
I have decided to make little cutouts of this and have the 'Walmart space' left blank..
I was in another store on the weekend and the woman said:
"Oh yes, service dogs are permitted but YOU MUST carry them.." lol
Oh my Gosh, I couldn't even respond! Really? What if it was a Lab?
* I will again share - Poppy is very well behaved and trained, everywhere we go = people come right up to me - especially ones with the same breed and comment on her behaviour,
don't kid yourself - if you come here - she barks! It is the pack mentality then that takes over. We walked past a woman (inches away) and her dog never stopped - Poppy just strolled right past! So proud of my little Poppy. - As for the not barking - how did I train her? I think she just knows. I look forward to our next library visit this week!
I am not angry with anyone at walmart- how could they understand?
Clearly there is an issue for people with service dogs. This, I hope is a start to education.
I will NEVER again explain what is wrong with me to any employee at any store.
I won't even speak I'll have these little cards and on the back will say: if it's a problem, I suggest you get your store superior/contact number for head office
They can write it right the back! Poppy power! ( TY Jo- lol)
The journey continues.. ;)
Teach only love... change hearts and minds one toon at a time.
Tomorrow an anti social media toon - lol - that being said:
I have a new account on instagram: georgia.toons check it out! ;)
