I’ve never been fond of dogs. I don’t dislike them exactly, but I don’t like them. You’re never supposed to trust a man who doesn’t like dogs and I would have to agree. I’m not very good company under the best circumstances, and hard times bring out the worst in me. Dogs can also put a damper on my mood.
One time, I went to a run-down zoo on the edge of town. I didn’t have to pay to get in, which would normally be a plus, but nothing went well after that. I soon found out that the zoo barely had any animals. In fact, the zoo consisted entirely of one dog tied to a metal post in the middle of the park. It was a pretty shih tzu.
