Animals are a different breed of beast than us humans. They don’t feel shame. Or guilt. And they can’t laugh out loud.
BUT . . .
I was driving home from the grocery store earlier (after not having actually bought anything because I FORGOT that it’s a holiday today) and while waiting at a red light I spotted a lady walking both her bike and her dog.
The lady looked perfectly normal although I know for a fact that there was something wrong with her by the way that her dog was dressed in a . . . um, dress. That’s right. A DRESS!
So while Miss-not-so-normal lady is out prancing around in comfortable jogging pants, her German Shepherd, who was also sporting a hat, was looking very UNCOMFORTABLE in her (I’m assuming it was a girl dog) pink dress and matching hat.
I have to say though that the leash did not match. (THANK GOD!)
So that known fact I mentioned earlier about animals not feeling shame . . . That dog was not only feeling shame, she was blatantly EMBARRASED.
And if you’re wondering why said pet owner was walking her bike instead of riding it . . . have you ever tried to run in a dress? Obviously not an easy feat for dogs either.
