Situational Readymades 4

Nov 4th, 2009

I need to talk about something uncool for a sec.

Let’s be straight: I love animals and I love dogs and I’ve owned a few dogs myself. I know people in the city that own dogs and they’re cool and I like them. That said, I think NYC Dog Culture is very peculiar. New Yorkers really love their dogs, that’s clear, and they kind of expect you to love their dogs too.

I will just say this, and leave it at that: it is NOT OKAY to let your dog drink out of public water fountains. Fountains are for people. And yes, I know my very own hands carry more germs than your dog’s mouth or the average toilet or whatever. But please! DOGS LICK BUTTS. THEIR OWN AND OTHERS!
