New Service Dog Task

I was in the supermarket this afternoon, searching through the meat cases for the chicken breasts that were on sale. My service dog, Dillon, was standing calmly by my side Nearby were two young boys and their mother, and the boys were talking about Dillon. The older boy, who looked about 8, was reading Dillon's patches and telling his younger brother that he could not pet the dog, because it was working. The younger boy asked his brother what the dog was doing if it was working. The older boy replied, in a very authoritative voice, "Can't you tell? He's helping her pick out the best meat!".

So now you all know what Dillon REALLY does for me *VBG*.
