Gemma Colón recently visited a restaurant in New York City for a bite to eat. However, the visit satisfied more than just her appetite.
Colón told The Dodo, “I was confronted with one of the most unexpectedly heartwarming views.” I observed this canine sitting across from his owner, perched on a chair, behaving in the most gentlemanly manner.
Apparently, the canine and his owner were on a date.
Colón was fortunate enough to be seated in a position where he could observe the endearing couple, enjoying the sight of their happy relationship.
“[The man] was completing a crossword puzzle while sipping red wine with his dinner. “His date (the dog) was respectfully drinking from his own bowl of water,” Colón said. “It was truly remarkable how well-mannered the puppy was. This dog demonstrated better table manners than I have seen from some humans.”
While the man and his dog dined, Colón observed other diners smiling at the adorable scenario. No one had the heart to interrupt their meal to remark on their attractiveness, but Colón overheard a conversation between the couple and their server that revealed this was not a one-time occurrence.
“At one point, I heard a waitress remark on how good the dog was, and the man replied that he brings the dog everywhere with him,” Colón said. It appeared to be a very pleasant evening with delightful company.
