Every morning I see a dog walker with several poodles, never any other breed.
My first encounter with this handsome, middle-aged man…punky looking with a tattoo of an anchor wrapping around his arm like a nautical tourniquet, was me snapping an aside Myrna Loy style.
“Those dogs look better than I do.” And they do, done to the hilt like black, white and gray ice skaters coiffed by Mr. Kenneth.
I finally said to him, “Tell me something, do you only walk poodles?”
He looked at me for a second, sizing up the question before saying,”I work for someone with 5 homes and 16 standard poodles which is why you see so many different ones. They change them from time to time.”
“You mean, like closets?”
Happy Labor Day everyone.
