I'm not sure this is a true statement, but I was floored when we went to the dog park on Wednesday. Harper was being a maniac...bouncing with energy, even before we got to the park. When we arrived, however, she darted straight to the center of the fenced area and started jumping ALL OVER a woman. I was slightly horrified. I went over and apologized profusely, but the woman laughed and said, "Don't worry about it, I'm used to it. I'm a dog walker." At that point, I said, "C'mon, Harper, let's leave her alone." To which the woman gushed, "Harper! I knew I knew this dog!"
Turns out that she works for the dog walking service that we use and when I used to travel out of state weekly to go to a client site earlier this year, she was the one that would walk the dog. I finished that project in...April maybe? It's been awhile. But Harper still definitely knew who Robin was! (It is also reassuring that obviously she was well taken care of and a big fan of her walker!)
