Reason #5 Why I Will Never Have a Dog

Some combos are great. Peanut butter and jelly. Pomegranates and Martinis. Ti and Vo. They all bring a smile to your face, right? This weekend I "experienced" a combo that will wipe the smile right off your face. A combo so awful I can barely type the words. Must. Type. Through. The. Pain. Here it is: Uggs and dog poop. Yes, it's true. I can personally attest to the fact that that is a combo from hell. You always know the minute it happens, don't you? There's no mistaking that mushy feeling. Suffice it to say that this incident was like my own personal Fear Factor (surpassed only by the time I was waiting for a friend of mine in the vet's office and the door kept opening and more and more dogs came in to join me in the little tiny waiting room--but I digress). What did I do to upset the karma gods, I wondered, as I THOROUGHLY washed each and every little Ugg crevice on my boot? How could this happen to me in a house full of dog lovers? Someone else's house, that is. Someone else's front lawn, I mean. I guess it teaches me a good lesson or two. Stay on the pathway. Keep your head down and your boots held high. I'm going to take this whole incident as a learning experience.

When did this happen? Very funny. The karma gods must have been punishing you for dismissing me as your first call in the morning. By the way who is that now?

A tip from the squay: If you're stepping in dog poop, wear flats. Every guy knows this. One or two scrapes on the edge of the curb, a simple dowsing in a puddle and followup rub on the grass solves most problems from the Golden on down. Never, never wear UGGs for stepping in dog poop. Doesn't Nordstrom's teach you things like that?

I was there for that. Not a good experience. I hope there isn't any in your car...
