Customer Service

Jilda worked today, so while she toiled away, I tossed Old Buddy in the truck and we took a leisurely ride to town to run some errands.
I've sold some books the last few days so I wheeled into the drive-thru windows at our bank, and Old Buddy, who normally snoozes on the passenger seat, became animated.
When the mechanical drawer opened, he was in my lap in an instant. Apparently the teller and Old Buddy go way back because he put on a show for the lady. He cocked his head one way and then the other.
I'm sure he must have looked like the RCA Victor dog in those 1950s commercials, because through the bullet-proof glass I could hear the woman say aaawwweee.
I popped the checks into the drawer and petted Old Buddy as he did other tricks.
If he could have gotten a little closer, I'm sure he would have licked the glass.
When the drawer came back and clanged open, there was a treat inside with my receipt. Old Buddy yipped a thank you as we drove off.


  1. Sounds like Buddy is charmer! How nice to get treats for the dogs. I think our banks do that too, but I've never had a dog with me to find out! Congrats on book sales...that brings a smile too!

  2. What a cute little dog.
    What would we do without our best friends.:)

  3. he is a charming dog indeed...


  4. Awwwww Old Buddy is a star!! Yay! take care

  5. How nice of the teller. Are the treats stamped with the bank logo for advertisement, he,he. Banks usually never miss a trick.
