I love dogs and we happen to have two of them in our family. Not once, not even for a moment, have we ever considered taking them to the local hardware store, pet store, or any other store to shop. They are broke. Yep, jobless and lazy and they essentially have perfected the art of mooching by being perfectly cute and well behaved. So we leave them to enjoy the comfort of home with access to food and water and the joy of a daily walk in the neighborhood (leashed). An occasional trip to the dog park is like doggy heaven to them and of course the vet trips which aren't so much like heaven to them. Other than that, they are home. So for all you Paris wannabe's who seem to be so lonely that you are compelled to drag fluffy around EVERYWHERE, you look ridiculous.
