#164 Who Let The Dogs Out?
I’m not overly fond of dogs. Don’t get me wrong – I think they’re cute and cuddly and all that, but they don’t quite excite me as much as cats do.
But I do think they’re wonderful creatures and fully understand how they’ve earned their “man’s best friend” title.
My family had a dog when I was a kid, who then passed away before I hit my teens. Her name was Puchi, and she was an indie with an ochre coat and a perennial wag on her tail.
We also had a bunch of cats and kittens who eventually died/fled (as many cats do), and then we stopped adopting pets altogether.
I now fill that hole in my heart with YouTube videos of other people’s pets.
One of my latest favourites is a channel called ‘Girl With The Dogs’, run by a pet groomer who films herself grooming her whimsical clients and with a monotone voiceover as an accompaniment. I love the voiceover for her dry wit and sarcastic humour.
You’ll fall in love, I just know it.
