My dog, Mindie, has struggled with digestion/stomach issues on and off this year. Well, the little nanu-nanu had a flare up recently, so I called our vet. Conveniently located in the downtown area, we can walk to the vet and we do so almost every visit. Mindie was a trooper after being poked and prodded. I thought things were downhill from there…just the walk home. Walking home with an audience of a construction crew, police officers, other pedestrians and waiting cars at the stoplight, Mindie decided to take revenge mid-crosswalk. In the middle of the crosswalk, she decided to relieve herself. Embarrassed, I stood there staring with bag in hand to try to figure out how to pick up her mess. One construction worker shouted, “If you have to go, you have to go.” Finally, the cop said, “You can’t pick that up with a bag.” There it sits in a crosswalk between Race and Fifth near the Saks Fifth Avenue…I’m sorry America.
