Who would’ve thought that getting a dog would open so many doors. We’ve managed to make new friends because of Pluto. Not only that, but somehow a small dog club was created.
Each day, at 7 PM we get together and chit chat while our 4 legged friends play around. We also get together during weekends, if the weather allows us and we go to the park.
It’s great fun!
It’s also refreshing to have someone to talk to about certain subjects that non-pet owners will never understand. It’s always nice and comforting to have new friends.
I was really thinking a couple a weeks ago that if I cannot find a decent job, till summer comes, I will start my own dog walking company. I would do it for free actually. I am also happy that the weather is turning nice (even if we have some rain from time to time) and that we can have weekend outings to the park.
The only thing that annoyed me regarding to dogs, is the police. I’ve been stopped twice so far by police in less than 2 weeks, just because I was walking my dog. They are trying to make sure all dog owners are aware of the new laws:
1. All dogs must be kept on a leash, except for special places meant for them to play in,
2. All dog owners need to clean up after their dogs.
3. All dogs that are not a pure breed need to be sterilized.
4. All dogs need to have that microchip implant.
I agree with all of the above. We’ve always cleaned after Pluto. We walk him on his leash (he has 3 of them). He is a pure breed so we don’t need to sterilize him, but we do need to pay taxes because of it. And he has that microchip implant.
Yet, because he is a big puppy and that I am a girl, the police actually stops me every time they see me. They never stop me when I am with someone else; they never stop John even if he sometimes plays with Pluto without a leash in front of our apartment building and they never stop people with small breeds.
I guess I’m special like that. Either way dogs are great.
