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!

FOUNTAINS ARE FOR PEOPLE.
