I just nod politely and move on. They don't mean to offend me, so I don't allow it to. Then again, maybe it's a Texas thing, because I have heard it tons since we moved here, but not before. Everybody and their aunt has a dog with autism down here. Must be the heat.
Wow. Thats just weird. What a bunch of weirdos. It must be so tough having an autistic dog....(insert eyerolling smiley here)

For the OP, we used to vax and never asked people if they did or didnt and didnt avoid anyone unless they were sick. (Vaxed or not)

We dont vax now and still dont ask people what they do. But I also dont take newborns out and about during the winter months unless it is necessary (doc, illness etc)
