This dog I saw today didn’t have the slightest interest when I offered him money. Turns out he wasn’t panhandling. He was waiting for his owners to finish up in the restaurant.
In my defence, he was sitting by the entrance with a little dish in front of him and he was making puppy dog eyes at every passerby.
What was I supposed to think?
To keep anyone else from making the same mistake and trying to leave change in his dish, I filled it with water.
Which is how I found out he was really thirsty.
