“If I was a girl dog …”

DSC02077My dog Ace gets a lot of compliments — far more than I do — but yesterday he got a doozie.

A burly, fortyish man in shorts and a sleeveless t-shirt, passing us on the sidewalk in south Baltimore (we’re slow walkers), turned after he passed and said, “If I was a girl dog, I’d hook up with him.”

To which, a few seconds later, he  felt it necessary to add, “Don’t get me wrong, I’m not gay or nothin’.”

“It’s just that he’s a beautiful dog,” he explained, then continued on his way.

John, you would have really thrown him off if you said: “Thanks! If I was a woman, I would hook up with you! Not that I’m gay or nothin’.”

LoL. That would certainly be enough to catch a dog owner a bit off-guard!
