BELLY-RUB POTENTIAL: 1 out of 4
In an earlier post, I looked at some of the indignities we dogs suffer in the name of love. Lest my readers think that I am exempt from such treatment, let me confess: I, too, have endured occasional affronts to my honor committed by well-meaning humans.
On our walks, my People and I sometimes combine exercise with errands (not always—usually I lead them to just wander through the city like the flâneur I am). Many of the businesses we visit signal their welcoming attitude with water bowls at their entrances and treat jars on the counter. Other establishments clearly forbid dogs with stern signage. Occupying some strange middle ground is the home goods
purgatory emporium known as Bed, Bath & Beyond.
