dogs who wear clothes
it's chilly out today. i didn't know it would be chilly. the dog across the street was prepared. he is wearing a sweater today. it reminds me of college. there was this blind girl at my school who always hung out with this seeing-eye dog. they did EVERYTHING together. inseparable friends, you might call them. anyhow, one day it was raining and the dog was wearing a yellow raincoat. at lunch that day (in those days i ate lunch and dinner with my best friends EVERYDAY) my friend trent was telling us he saw the dog that morning wearing a raincoat and it occurred to trent that while the dog was wearing a raincoat AND under the umbrella held by his friend, the blind girl, trenton was without raincoat OR umbrella. we all discussed and agreed that the seeing-eye dog had his life together way moreso than any of us. and i still feel that way. seeing-eye dogs are probably the most selfless and disciplined creatures on the planet. seeing-eye dogs and flight attendants.
