Because life doesn't put itself on hold in troubled times, even though VBB central is under a lot of stress today, I still had to walk the puppy. We walked up the street through the neighborhood for about 40 minutes this morning. Oh neighborhood. Why hast thou forsaken me?
Believe it or not, I expect people to be nice. I expect polite, intelligent, kind people to populate my world. I am constantly disappointed, by the way.
The guy with the obstructed dog wasn't out, though I saw his dog pee yesterday, so there's that. But a few homes past him is "my dog wants to play with your dog" man. This man drives me to drink. His dog is a land shark and shouldn't be allowed in polite society. But today his dog was not home (it's at the groomer! Yay!) so instead he just wanted to chat about his new "invention." He insisted that he was going to create a dog food system that involved feeding the dog a capsule and then 20 minutes later, dog food. The capsule dissolves to reveal a baggie that waits in the rectum to be filled with stool. Then the dog poops out a bag of stool. Honestly I was LMAO but he became quite put out & insisted he was "extremely not kidding." Then he said "you know I hadn't thought of it but we'd make a great team. We could market this in your clinic." I just looked at him, & raised one eyebrow, and left. He's probably blogging now about his bitchy-ass neighbor, the vet who blew off his big business idea.
