I know what you must be thinking: "two blogs in one day? lisa must be drinking"
and you're right. Inspiration comes to us from lots of different places. My inspirational place just happens to be halfway down a bottle of wine.
At any rate...
So something I noticed when we had the dog... dog people are really friendly. You don't feel any hesitation in meeting the owner of the dog whose ass your dog is sniffing. You just look at the owner and do that "how's it?" nod. They'll strike up a conversation with you, talk about how cute your dog is, ask about his breed and his age. You share tips and tricks and advice. These people are genuinely interested in your dog. All the while you guys are watching this butt sniffing marathon go on and act like it's nothing. In what other circumstance can you do that?? They are always SO very nice. I mean yeah you get the occasional weirdo who is waaaaay too into their dog but whatever. Think of it as entertainment.
Unfortunately we had to get rid of the dog citing irreconcilable differences. It just wasn't meant to be. But what I miss most are the dog owners. Because quite frankly, child owners are bitches.
I guess it's just as well because if we talk to the mommy then we'll have to exchange info and start playdating. At least with a dog you can end it by saying "well, see you around!"
So until the next time, I'll see you around!
