I was always told that you let people off the bus first before trying to get on – this never happened on my trip to cribbs causeway, and it was people of all ages who really should know better – which wasnt very helpful to the elderly people who were forced to squeeze their way through and off the bus.
Then when I got to my stop the elderly lady was having trouble getting off – she had to step into the road then onto the pavement as the bus hadnt been able to pull up close enough. I was stood behind her and after thanking the bus driver (I always do) I saw the hordes trying to barge past her I decided enough was enough.
I stood in their way and offered my arms to help her up the pavement, and even stood holding her until she had both her sticks ready and her balance correct. I then moved the other side so the others could get on the bus (the rest of the passengers had left from behind us from the gap I had created). She thanked me – which I replied, "your welcome, anytime", I would have done it again and again.
I cant believe how much it has become everybody for themselves in Bristol – in weston the bus driver will remind people to wait – it has happened a couple of times, but generally they do wait to get on. I mean the bus is not going to drive off without picking them up :001_rolleyes:
Then when I was taking pepper for her walk she was playing with a 10 month GSD x rottie girly who was really sweet. The young lad said that the vet had recommened that he put weights on her to build up her muscles whilst running around the park 😮 I did ask him what he thought of this advice and he is not going to follow it.
I am right in thinking that a cross breed of two dogs that are known for hip and elbow displacia would not be best weighting them down as they are growing (let alone ever). Surely lots of lead walks would infact build up this muscle?
Somedays I wonder what this world is coming too.
