Unintended consequences

Here are some of the things I do so far in my new part-time job.

1. Explain how to housebreak a puppy.
2. Give free, amateur medical advice. ("Yeah, that looks bad, you should see a vet.")
3. Give directions to the public rest room.
4. Explain that this is a pet store, and we don't sell needles/keyrings/office supplies etc.
5. Convince people that those really ARE dog cookies.

Lilly is eleven years old. Don't you wish you knew what brand of face cream she uses? She has only the exact same number of wrinkles she was born with.

If Pugs Did Decade-End Retrospectives

Stolen from my internet friend David Wahl, often previously mentioned on this blog in connection with Roscoe the pug of sainted memory.

"Best 10 Smells of the Decade"

1. Prime Rib Gravy
2. Human feet when they remove their shoes after a long day
3. Pee
4. Other pugs' face wrinkles
5. That Great Dane that rolled in dead fish at the park.
6. Poo
7. Whatever it is that you're eating right now.
8. Kitchen garbage that one time you ate crab legs and left the shells overnight.
9. That dead thing you wouldn't let me smell long enough to conclusively identify.
10. Gary Shandling.
