Wrigley Ramblings

I walked Wrigs this morning and this woman randomly stops us on the street (which is not unusual) and begins to shower Wrigs with kisses and pets, which he willingly accepts. We're casually making small talk and then she starts to massage Wrigs back and hind quarters. I'm thinking this is kind of getting weird and the woman says, "He eats too many Cheerios." I said jokingly, "Well that's why we're on our walk." And then she says, "Someone needs a diet!" Seriously? Did you just call my dog fat? If we're gonna start throwing insults then you need to get your teeth fixed. And you know what else??? Maybe if it didn't RAIN 14 DAYS STRAIGHT we'd all be out getting more exercise you crazy toothless RAIN LOVER!!! I didn't say any of that of course, I just smiled pleasantly and thanked her for her unsolicited observation on my dog. Crazy bitch.

Then while on the same walk just a few blocks later this woman comes up and greets Wrigs all excited and animated so he starts to jump up on her. I say, "No jump!" She looks at me and says all teacher like, "Instead of saying 'No Jump' tell him 'Good Sit' when he sits. Use positive reinforcement when training a dog." WTF are we in Pet Smart??? And how the hell did I make it past 30 without this KNOW IT ALL in my life?? Next time, don't run up to my dog like you've just won the f*cking lottery and perhaps he will "GOOD SIT" for you.

What's with all the Dog Whisperers in this town???

Here's another sad Wrigs pic from the other day, while watching the rain drops fall. His chin is resting on the window ledge. He knows how to play the pathetic card a bit too well.

My fat ass Wrigley, oh how I miss thee. If only you were in the OC again and I could take you on a walk where you wouldn't listen to any of my commands. *Sigh* Those were the good old days, huh Wrigs? Yup. Fo' sho'.

These pics of Wrigley make me so sad for him. Poor guy. Give him our love!!! We miss you guys.

There are a couple of those ladies in my neighborhood. I think they are snobby dog owners. I bet their dogs poop smells just like all the others :)

Wrigley, I think you should have looked at the two women who gave your sweet mommy rude and unsolicited advice, turned right around, squatted, and took a big steaming dump on their shoes, then smiled a big dog smile, wagged and been on your Merry Way.

The utter nerve of people!!

I cannot STAND it when complete strangers feel compelled to give you their opinion/advice!

Drives me NUTS.

Pets and children have so many similarities! I can't tell you the number of times I've gotten "advice" while I'm out.

Maybe Wrigley needs to learn the command "sick 'em!"

Wrigs looks like such a cutie with his head on the ledge. Even your pooch looks melancholy in Seattle.
