Dog's Best Friend.....

This is what I saw on one of the streets of New York.
And yes indeed, if you walk your dog on the streets, as in any other place in the country, be prepared to scoop up its poop - or face the consequences.
Which explains the plastic bags dog owners carry while walking their pets.
In Seattle, one evening a strange woman knocked at our door, and asked for a plastic bag.
"I am so sorry," she said , "I forgot to bring a bag with me, and my dog has messed up the pavement."

As Jerry Seinfeld says
"If aliens are watching this through telescopes,they're going to think the dogs are the leaders of the planet. If you see two life forms, one of them's making a poop, the other one's carrying it for him, who would you assume is in charge?"

what is this hold dogs have on mortals
me: no hold, it's the desire to be wanted
cats are more like people, happy to be there and taken care of when they want to be taken care of, otherwise out
dogs are dumb, as someone rightly said
and you couldn't keep equally dumb cows and sheep at home,

me: and to go back to hold, the dogs have no hold, the owner has the leash


Thanks, Groucho.
I was trying to remember that highly appropiate quote.
