Weird things that Az does...

I had the oddest experience today when I was walking the hounds. We met a nice old bloke with two large random mutts who greeted Mollydog enthusiastically : Az kept clear, as he usually does, but then quite unexpectedly, he came up to the owner, half stood up on his hind legs to reach his face (man was leaning forwards) and kissed him on the nose and behind both ears.

You could have knocked me down with a feather : Az is normally very cautious around strangers, particularly men carrying sticks.  Normally if he's feeling really friendly he might sniff their hand and let them just touch his ears.

The chap was visibly moved by this.  When I said how surprised I was, he said 'he must have sensed my loss, I lost my old greyhound lurcher last week'.

Chap was certainly a lurcher magnet.
