Aaaah, the Bark Post. My favorite dog blog.
Today’s post absolutely cracked me up.
Fake service dogs are a big thing right now, as you know if you’ve ever laid eyes on this blog before, and my knee-jerk reaction to articles titled things like DIY How to Take Your Dog Everywhere is to get pissed and indignant, and before I’ve even clicked the link, I’ve crafted a nasty email to the author in my mind. I’m in the habit of brandishing the ADA, my sword and shield these days, before having a human conversation.
Life can feel really serious for folks with disabilities. We’re constantly defending our needs for accommodations and combating abuse of them by people without need. But this morning, I was pleasantly surprised, and wonderfully reminded that life’s not always so serious. Whether he or she knows it or not, the author addressed the real issue of silly people taking their dogs everywhere without the right to do it, and turned it into a hilarious joke.
The post is a step-by-step DIY for how to create popsicle stick dog-face fans so that you can always take Rover everywhere with you.
Hilarious, right? Who’s going to do that? But seriously, is it less ridiculous than dog strollers in shopping malls or entitled city dwellers carrying little yappy pups through Target while trying to shop for a new comforter? I don’t think it is. I think they’re about even.
Thank you, The Bark Post, for not sucking.
