Posing at the Portland Saturday Market

This made me realize two things:

1. I will never be able to scrape my way into upper middle class if I keep giving money to dogs.

2. My own dogs need jobs.

Can you put in a good word for my dog? Who knew that they could be so useful?

okay this made me laugh.
for some reason I see this as a scam but would probably have donated as well. I mean c'mon look at that face!
Hey, you may have just given me an idea to make some extra cash. I have to go now and make a sign for Izzy. I'll split the tips with you.

oh it was a total scam but people were falling for it, myself included.

the dog would walk around for awhile with the sign in his mouth. eventually he'd stop and his owner (who looked homeless-or at the very least, just down on his luck in some way or another) would put the cup through his leash. the cup would fill up, and they'd move on. in the couple of minutes i was standing by him, he made at least $5.

i WISH i could teach my dogs to do this. my chihuahua is completely dumb and untrainable, and Liz is smart but scared of everything-it would never work.

ha! made me laugh too. But please, let's not analyze why we are more likely to give money to people's pet than the people themselves.

While I was accumulating student loan debt I would fantasize about pan handling...the dog is onto something.

I would definitely give money and then curse my dog for barely understanding the "sit" command.
