What’s the deal with dogs in baby carriages?

It started with one I saw years ago, and I asked about it and the woman said that her dog was, “sick.” And I believed her and then over the years I have started to see more and more of dogs in baby carriages.

The other day I go into Dollar Tree (no I don’t have any stock in it) and after being blocked from going down this aisle and that aisle I had happened to bump into a carriage that contained a a very happy, tail wagging dog and so I started to interview it and see if it had been in the aisle with the dog treats and toys yet.

“Nice baby,” I say to the person pushing the cart, “looks just like you.”

I am sure that someplace out there there is a dog pushing another dog in a stroller while the one doing the sitting is on their I-Pad.

Today, I met Gigi and we almost didn’t meet and as we passed by and the dog sniffed my hand.

I turned around and Gigi just to play and then rolled over and I rubbed her ears and belly and snout and was having a good time and then realized that the “owner” might need to leave and that I was inconveniencing them and it really didn’t matter because Gigi…
