Gemma Colón stopped by a local NYC restaurant to grab a bite before seeing something that made her stop in her tracks.
“I was presented with one of the most unexpectedly heartwarming views,”she told The Dodo. “I noticed this dog seated across from his owner, perched up on a chair, acting like an absolute proper gentleman.”
This pup and his owner seemed to be on a date.
Thankfully, she was seated in perfect view of the pair, enjoying the adorable scene unfolding before her eyes.
“[The man] was doing a crossword puzzle and sipping a glass of red wine with his meal. His date (the dog) was enjoying his own bowl of water, which he slurped politely,” Colón said. “It was really amazing how well-behaved the pup was. I saw better table manners displayed by this dog than I’ve seen from some humans.”
Check out the video Gemma shot of the pair:
Gemma wasn’t the only one amazed at what was in front of her eyes, other diners couldn’t help but smile at the sweet scene, but nobody dared to interrupt their meal.
“I heard a waitress comment on how good the dog was at one point, and the man replied saying he brings the dog with him everywhere,” Gemma said. “It definitely seemed like a very pleasant date, with lovely company.”
