That is what I should have said to the lady at the Issaquah Trader Joe's who thought putting her dog in the grocery cart was the cutest thing.
Let me tell you, it wasn't. She drug this dog into the store. And we're not talking a tiny little purse-type dog. It was about 20 lbs. It looked a little bewildered as she giggled at it in the cart and went about her merry-little-totally-oblivious-way. The rest of us in the produce section just stood there and stared.
Now, I'll admit, I'm not a dog person. But, I've got nothing against the responsible dog owner who loves their dog with all their heart. I know people like that. They are good, responsible, loving pet owners. They also feel the same about dogs in shopping shopping carts, grocery stores and Nordstrom as I do. Yes, Nordstrom. I once saw a woman with her greyhound dog (on a leash) strolling through Nordstrom. The dog had a rhinestone collar. I guess she felt that gave her the right to take her beloved pooch to Nordstrom.
Incidentally, in case you're wondering, it's not OK according to the King County Health Department to put a dog in a shopping cart. And they'll be letting the folks at Trader Joe's know that.
