PUTTIN’ ON THE DOG

This is New York where one shouldn’t be surprised over anything…but every once in a while…

I’m coming out of the bank. A Corgi, AKA the Queen’s dog, and a white Maltese that looks like a package of Hostess Sno-balls, are patiently waiting by the cash machines dressed in leopard from head to paw, including masks, but with their little snouts showing.

They even have leopard boots I never realized, come in plastic.

They give me their best Upper East Side sneer as if to say, what are you looking at, when their Mistress, well, he is a fellow in a full length mink coat and high-heeled boots so it’s safe to say…comes to claim them.

Before I could say anything nor leave, he says, “I see you’re admiring my boys.”

“Yes, I am,” I say, “they’re...searching for words…real showstoppers.”

He smiles as he takes treats out of his Louis Vuitton satchel, giving each dog one, before turning back to me to say, “How bout you?”

His smile triples, when he sees my face.

They were Oreos.

See, even New York, can still surprise you.Β  πŸ™‚

  2. Did you have to sit or anything to get one? Chocolate is poison for dogs. I guess he will find out someday, or maybe the Oreo people don’t really use chocolate. Great story, though.

  3. You meet all kinds of people there, it’s quite amazing. I feel like I’ve been there quite a bit, just from reading your posts. Love the idea of uppity sneering dogs. πŸ™‚

    By the way … I absolutely love Hostess Sno-Balls. They are as close to perfection as you can get without being pizza.

    Susannah, I thought dogs weren’t supposed to eat chocolate, that it gave them the runs. Those outfits won’t look so good with Oreo poop. So funny that he offered you one. I hope the pooches weren’t jealous!

    • They were too smug to be jealous. I’ll tell ya Skinny, everything is out of this world right now. sigh Oreos instead of biscuits, leopard boots that zip…yes, forgot that. A he/she who looked better than I did with a Louis that could have paid my rent. Life presently, is like looking at it through a fun house mirror.
