dog walking

As many of you know, I have been puppy hungry for a long time. I've never gotten too close to actually following though. The closest I have come was last week when I offered to babysit the neighbor's dog Zoe. Zoe is a tiny fluffy yuppie dog with a rhinestone halter and a bow in her hair. I didn't think much of it until I took her out for a walk. Lo and behold, there were lots of people out, and I did not feel cool in the slightest. I was actually embarrassed to be walking a dog wearing rhinestones. She was prancing all girly, and I am big and tall and wearing all black, it was like Mick Jagger walking a fluffy pink toddler. (not that I am like mick jagger, but you get the idea). I used to think I could get a small dog, since I'm in the city and all, but I can't. I want a big dog now, or at least one without a bow.

I loved this on the phone, and I'm still loving it in print.
