I get asked this question a lot. I guess people assume I must be training a service dog for someone else since I don't look disabled. I don't get asked that question every time I go somewhere with Isaac, but I bet I do at least half the time. Probably closer to 75% of the time. It gets annoying.
The conversation usually goes something like this.
Random Stranger: Are you training that dog?
Me: Nope. He's already trained.
Random Stranger (looking confused): Oh. Um... is he your dog then?
Random Stranger: Oh. But is he a service dog?
Random Stranger: He's your service dog?
Random Stranger: Oh. Well... what kind of dog is he?
Me: He's a yellow lab.
Random Stranger: I meant what kind of service dog. Like what does he do?
Me (sighing): He helps me.
Random Stranger: Oh... well... but how?
Me: Come on, Isaac. Time to go!
Seriously. At least 50% of the time when I go to the grocery store or the library or the thrift store or Applebee's, I have this conversation with a stranger.
I understand people are curious. But I get tired of it. Wouldn't you?
