Today I had to go get my knee x-rayed. I was planning to put Isaac in a downstay behind the little divider thing where they x-ray tech stands but there was another x-ray tech that volunteered to hold the leash for me in an adjoining room. They left the connecting door open so I could hear what was going on in there.
They had to take several x-rays and
partway through I heard Isaac's tags jingle and heard the tech tell him,
"They will be done in a minute."
I called out, "Isaac,
stay" and didn't hear anything else.
As soon as I was done, I called
him and he came trotting, but not running, into the room where I was.
Then when I started to walk out of the room, Isaac turned back to the
tech that had watched him for me and said goodbye by nuzzling her hand
for a second. It was cute.
And he behaved very well.
And no one asked
me why I had a service dog.
