All dangerous dog owners must wear muzzles

“This big guy is dog-aggressive,” said my ride-share client (whose dog is a Burmese-poodle mix).

“How do you mean?” I asked.

“He only barks when he’s around other dogs 😠 and that’s why he’s got a muzzle. I’m taking him to the groomer.”

“He’s a Covid dog he wasn’t trained during the pandemic, and I was given to him by two past owners who were police officers.”

“They really need to do background checks on dogs because it’s like handing the owner a loaded gun.”

“Do you ever get complaints from muzzle naysayers?” I asked.

“Well, if I do, I just tell them that they should hold the leash.”

“Yeah, he dragged me 30 feet on my stomach, but if I gave him back they’d just tell me to put him in the shelter 😨 and I’m not going to do that.

(an idea about this week’s celebrity ride-share flashed through my mind)

“Have you ever met anyone famous or have your friends ever gone out with anyone famous)

“Funny you should ask, because I was at First Avenue (Minneapolis) one time and the our friends went out to eat afterwards and this group of guys came over to our table and had a few drinks with us and then offered their limo for us to get home safely.

“Later in the week, I was at the Best Buy watching TV( back when they used to have their TV’s stacked together in the 90's), and I recognized the guys in the music video from the bar. They were the Jetts!”

“That’s so awesome,” I said.
