My doggy's favourite day of the week is Tuesday. Tuesday is not only garbage day, but as an added bonus it's recycling day as well.
Because recycling is only once a week, the bins tend to overflow with stuff. Well meaning homeowners, eager to help the environment, fill the bins to the brim with paper, plastic cups, wrappers, and bottles. Now, this is a good thing when the weather is nice, but not such a good thing when it's the slightest bit windy. When it's windy, the pretty streets are lined with garbage. And, that's when doggy is happiest!! Walking him down the street is a nightmare, because he picks up EVERYTHING!!!
Just this week alone, he picked up an empty paper coffee cup from Tim Hortons, a bunch of napkins from McDonalds, and a pack of empty Export A's. His favourite thing, though, was a McDonalds hamburger wrapper. He would not let go of that at all. He put it in his mouth at the beginning of our walk, and did not drop it till we were back home 40 minutes later. I keep having visions of the vet doing blood tests on my 1 year old and finding out that he has high cholesterol and the bone density of a 90 year old!
A few days ago, we got a letter in the mail telling us that garbage pick up would be down to one day a week as well....oohhh what fun my doggy will have. I can hardly wait to see what other 3 course meal, followed by a cigarette my doggy will have next Tuesday!!
