I love your show! Got my boyfriend into it too, and we can't wait to see the movie.
What's the craziest thing that ever happened on set?

That's rough, I'm sorry. I have two small dogs (Boston terrier and Boston/bulldog mix) and it always surprises me how many people are scared of them. People often walk on the sidewalk or even cross the street. My dogs are friendly and don't bark and I make sure to keep right so there is room for people to pass. I have not been yelled at though. I am really surprised that the vest doesn't help you, I'm thinking maybe because your dogs are not golden retrievers? (One of the only explanations I've come up with for why people are scared of my dogs is that they look bulldogish and are assumed to be aggressive for that reason?)
On a lighter note, I definitely have people talk to my dogs all the time! And it's super awkward! They just say hello or hi and I stand there like... should I say something? Or not?

Yeah, I do find that it's mostly immigrants who are afraid (not, non white people, but people who grew up in another country where dogs were maybe not pets, or more likely to be dangerous). I still feel terribly guilty when they are scared though.
Kids are usually great unless parents have passed on their fears and misconceptions to them. You are doing good work by educating them!
