Dog Debris

Filed under super furry animals

Even though I would never even consider stealing snotty, germy, needy little kids, I’ll admit that the temptation to untie this little guy from the trashcan and run away with him this morning was pretty intense:

As much as I love that dogs are allowed into so many places here, I almost like it more when they have to wait outside.

I wonder how many of them get stolen every day by girls with allergic boyfriends who just want a couple hours of slobbery fun. I’ll bet the Bramble in Central Park has been colonized by kidnapped puppies released back into the wild.

    I thought that thing was a throw rug! It needs a bath, and then it would look fantastic on my living room floor.

    • You are a terrible person, and I love you.

      Did I ever tell you that when Jack was making an online 3-D model of our apartment to see how much furniture we could fit, he put a cowskin rug on the living room floor? I thought you’d appreciate that. Moreso if it was zebra skin, I imagine, but the cow appeals to my roots, obviously.

      I’m pretty sure he added a sheep to my bedroom, though, which I imagine you would like less.

        I actually like sheepskin rugs– I have 2 of them from Ikea. When I was in CA our family cat got locked in my room once and peed on it — apparently it was the closest thing to the litter box that she could think of. Poor thing. I appreciated her trying not to pee on the carpet though.

        Funny about the cowskin rug- it’s a good thing you’ve moved in with Jack because he will need help with the decorating- cow rug screams bachelor pad in a bad way to me. :)

        Those types of dogs always remind me of my grandma’s dog from when I was little. That dog grossed me out- I actually used to call him throw rug instead of his real name, which was Toby.

    I think I would sit myself down on the sidewalk and shamelessly snuggle that dog until I felt better about myself.

    That lil guy (or girl) is so cute! And I don’t think he (or she) can see!

    OMG that dog is ADORABLE. And I don’t typically see dogs as such.

    I would have taken the dog. I’m not ashamed.

  5. OMG! He/she is adorable! You totally should have stolen him/her!

    Just kidding. Sort of. (Not really.)

    You know how I feel about dogs, but that one is CUTE. I do have a soft spot for little fluffy dogs, as long as I don’t have to touch or smell them. I would almost even approve if you had a dog like that one.

    If I tried to tie bowser like that, he’d first knock over the trashcan in an attempt to run up to the next person he saw. Terrify that person, then release he knocked over a trash can, and eat everthing that spilled out. For the trifecta, he’s remember about the person who’s running in fear now, and chase them down, while dragging the trashcan behind him.
