In the Legazpi Market parking lot, this guy was being trained to act like a burglar for K-9 tear-you-apart classes. The all-black attire and him whacking various surfaces with a stick was supposed to set him apart from all other human beings.
Bad day at work + no clothing allowance.
I'm not sure how many burglars actually exhibit this kind of behavior, and I didn't know what the chances were of the dog lunging at my throat if I got too near. These are just things you just don't know.
Jumps up a truck. I am officially fearful of police dogs.
