Like KarineB, I don't think the dog should have been in the store (I don't think dogs allowed in stores anyways ). Second, as Masha stated, why did the employee think it was ok to pet the dog?

No kidding. I certainly hope that the employee, at the very least, learned how threatening her actions (through body language) were to the dog in the first place.

Which brings up a wonderful memory I have of my son when he was a toddler. He was sitting in the grocery cart, a woman just came up to us and, before I knew it, she was reaching out to touch his face. He growled and snapped at her hand . The look on her face was priceless .
