A Chinese Crested Catastrophe in Chelsea

I was standing at the northeastern corner of 21st & 9th waiting to cross the street when I noticed one of those Chinese Crested dogs. You know, with the nearly hairless bodies except for long strands of hair coming out of their anxious faces.

...I stood there thinking about how unfortunate it is that these dogs get such a bad rap because they really are cute once you get past the shock factor and seem very sweet...

For those of you unfamiliar with this dog breed, here is a photo snagged from google:

The dog bounced around nervously seemingly desperate to cross the street when an aquaintance or friend of the dog's owner approached the duo and said, "Hey, haven't seen you in a while...got a new dog there?" to which the owner said, "Well, not so new but he is wanting to go home." The aquaintance responded, "I don't blame him! I mean, what did you do to him? Look at him!" The dog's owner grew silent, lowered his head and explained meekly, "No, you see, that's how he comes, I mean, what he's normally like...I didn't do anything to him." Thankfully for him and the dog, just at that moment, God orchestrated from above and turned the traffic light green and the dog and owner escaped across the street into their home where supposed friends and aquaintances can't make you feel ugly.



Comments

If someone made a comment about my dog that was that unthoughtful (and UNTRUE!), that person would no longer be a friend and I'd deny any acquaintance with him. Jackass.

CHINESE CRESTEDS ROCK!!!

UNFORTUNATELY THOSE KIND OF COMMENTS ARE HEARD EVERY SINGLE TIME A HAIRLESS CHINESE CRESTED IS SPOTTED IN PUBLIC, I CAN'T LEAVE THE HOUSE WITHOUT SOMEONE SAYING HOW UGLY MY DOG IS OR "WHAT KIND OF DISEASE DOES THAT POOR DOG HAVE"
I HAD A BREEDER OF PEKINESE TELL ME "THAT IS BY FAR THE UGLIEST ANIMAL I HAVE EVER SEEN" WELL I GUESS SHE NEVER LOOKS AT HER DOGS.
