You know what it’s like: you fill up your cart with groceries, you’ve got an increasingly antsy kiddo in tow, and all you want to do is pay and get back home before the ice cream melts. So you choose the checkout lane with the shortest line, and then the person in front of you has fifteen price checks and the card reader goes down. For most of us, this is a once-in-awhile annoyance, for a local puppy named Bruno, it’s his every day life.
“It’s incredible, really, how often he picks the wrong lane,” says coworker Stephanie Sabatini. “I once saw him go into Petco on his lunch break to buy a single treat. They had two lanes open, and he picks the one that’s the completely clear instead of the one where someone is doing a return. I swear, as soon as he steps up to the counter, all hell breaks loose in grooming and his cashier is called away to help for 15 minutes. The other line must have had ten customers go through while he waited!”
Friends say Bruno takes his special “talent” in stride, always happily wagging his tail no matter how long he has to wait. But it has affected his relationships.
“Bruno is amazing guy,” says Sabatini. “Literally one of the goodest boys I know. But I would never go shopping with him again. It takes all day!”
