I don't mind if people ask to pet my dog, particularly if he is laying down 
somewhere, or if I am in a familiar place, like my church, at Western, or at 
my job this summer.  In fact Judson knows the command "Go say hi" and knows 
he is allowed to be a dog, when I give that command.

Now... I do need to reinforce this sigh, at the church though as a couple of 
the girls are taking liberties.

But I don't have a problem with people who ask if I have the time.

But if I say NO there is a reason why I am saying NO, and please respect 
that, smile.

Some people don't.

 Old dogs are the treasure at the other.

Sometimes, in the right circumstances, I ask people who are not blind if I
can pet their dog. Therefore, it would seem normal for me to ask someone who 
 in blind, in the right circumstances, if I could pet his or her dog. Now, I
know  not to do this, anymore. I think that the sign helps because it is a
natural  inclination to pet dogs.
