So far I have been super LUCKY and have only received compliments about Brodie. It is usally "I love your dog" or "your dog is gorgeous" and it is very very good that I have only received compliments because I would lose my mind if someone said something negative about the way he looks.
I have a neighbor who lives on and adjoining road and if she sees us outside no matter if she is in her car leaving her house she will pull over and get out of car to come see Brodie. He runs up to her and lays down on her feet while she ohhs and ahhs over him. It is too cute.
