While there, I ran into an old acquaintance of mine whom I haven't seen in almost a year. She was handing out samples of a kind of cookie/treat and had a big display depicting the cookie/treat. We started to talk and we got onto the subject of pets. I was telling her about Luke when a guy comes up to the display table, grabs a couple of the cookies and wanders off munching them. Had this guy paid any attention to the conversation or the pictures on the display, he would have noticed that they were "Natural Defense Healthy Snacks for Adult Dogs"! The particular ones she was giving samples of are for the dogs digestive system. (I'd post a picture of the boxes and bags of the dog food, but I can't seem to find any. Perhaps later, I can get Silv to scan a copy of the coupon she gave me and I can post that!)
Oh we laughed! We kept laughing till we were almost ready to cry! Between fits of giggles, she told me how many people actually do that and how many others were slightly smarter and caught on just as they were going for the cookies! That just made us laugh harder and tears were indeed flowing down our faces.
Apparently not paying attention to what is being handed out at the "free sample" tables, is a common problem. These people who just "grab and eat" are the highlight of her day, and there are 2 or 3 of them each day! The good thing is that there is nothing in the dog food/treats that will harm a person and watching someone eating this stuff when they don't know it alleviates what would otherwise be a rather boring day.
