Big Man, Little Dog and the Bloomies Shoe Dept.

Ok, I will admit this upfront. I was going to title this post ‘No evidence of a penis on this man’ but I was truly fearful of what sort of traffic I would get from that. And the whole gender stereotype thing does rub me the wrong way – although by the way he is dressed it is obvious this dog was not his idea. And I am thinking the shoe shopping wasn’t either. He looks more like a Home Depot sort of guy to me.

Maybe I should have titled this, ‘Shopping is not a canine activity’, because that is what really irks me. I could go on about the upswing in people bringing there little pampered pooches out to shopping and dinner excursions, dressing them up in little clothes and putting them in strollers, for G-d’s sake. I hear this is an epidemic in South Florida. The last time I was there I saw a yorkie in an Ed Hardy hoodie… that is just not ok. (but a lovely outfit to shop for shoes in Bloomies, I suppose) What is up with this behavior?

This is the second time this year that I have seen a man in the women’s shoe dept of Bloomingdales with one of these little dogs.

Just guessing when this guy first started dating this woman this was not his idea of a night out.

    In other words, because of a little pussy, this guy has gone to the dogs? 😉
    So if this guy was with a lab or a bulldog or a boxer, would you have written the same post?
    FWIW, at one point it seemed as though every other house in our neighborhood possessed a fluffy little white dog. I think I must have counted half a dozen bichon frisees, 2 white eskimo dogs, plus a cockapoo or three. Crazy. Yet of all the dog owners, I only saw one male neighbor who actually walked his fluffy white dog in daylight.
    Also, too, Bloomingdale’s lets you bring your dog into the store? Or does helping you pick up out a pair of Manolo Blahniks count as a “service” (as in service dog)?
    Okay, I’m done now. 🙂

    • Nice rant, J. If this guy had a lab or bulldog or boxer those little shoe eaters would break him. And no, I am not little dog prejudiced; when it comes to shopping and eating I think the pet should stay home. Pet is not an accessory.

      Everyone knows I am in love with my dogs. They are a huge part of my life and I talk about them and photograph them a ton. But I don’t believe I have every considered one of them my children. Although Mel and I did seem to be genetically linked with the same thyroid condition…

    after once being peed on in a store, don’t think they should have special privileges! I would suggest a line of manly dog bags (made by John Deere) to schlep them around….and sold, exclusively, at Bloomies!

    I even have a problem with dogs at crowded outdoor concerts and festivals. I always think, what if we ALL brought our dogs. I just don’t get it.
