Just a bystander

I went to the pet food and supply store where we enjoyed the grand opening earlier this week, and the cashier recognized me. Sort of. 
"Oh," she said. "You're the one with the Biggest Dog."
However, she didn't say it as, "You're the OWNER of the Biggest Dog."
She said it as, "You're the one who ACCOMPANIES the Biggest Dog." 
As in, "The Biggest Dog's chauffeur."
"The Biggest Dog's go-fer."
"The Biggest Dog's secretary."
"The Biggest Dog's buyer of pet foods."
"The Biggest Dog's personal groomer."
"The Biggest Dog's maid."
"The Biggest Dog's fan club president."
Yup. That's me.
