Arizona Daily Sun columnist Tom Carpenter always prompts me to start Sunday mornings with a chuckle, but this week, I laughed especially hard in response to his column “If our pets could read.” It shows great insight into what sorts of issues might be of interest to dogs.
He proposes a number of possible articles for the imaginary (as far as I know anyway!) magazine “People Fancy.” My favorites titles were:
Biting the Hands that Feed Us. Commonsense tips for avoiding this faux pas.
Ten Code Words for “Walk.” Never miss another one.
Obesity. Laps are disappearing at an alarming rate. A roundtable discussion.
Baby on Board. Twenty easy steps you can take to stay in the house and out of the shelter after the baby arrives.
What topics do you imagine your dog would want to read about?
