You know how the French just love their dogs? Hows they carry them everywhere? Even into restaurants (not so much here but I hear it's still common in Paris)? And let them poo everywhere so that we all have to dodge their little "gifts" on the sidewalks (but then, that's a whole other post)? And treat them like their little children?
After all that puppy love, I had a shock to the system yesterday. On my way to work, I passed a young woman berating her dog, kicking it with her stilletoed heel, and then muttering, "connasse."
Well, I'd accidentally caught her eye by this point, so I think she was talking to the dog.
