Three-legged dogs are prohibited from pooping here.

It is a beautiful morning. The fog dips into the nooks and crannies of the rolling hills in my neighborhood. It is quiet out; Malamute Guy is nowhere to be seen. Annoying Blonde Girl must be taking a morning off from appearing to hate the world.

Then we see it. Rubi and I. The sign.

Three-legged dogs are prohibited from pooping here.

So, what's the big deal, you say? How many three-legged dogs poop in your neighborhood, anyway?

Well, let me tell you why: Currently, it is discrimination against just the three-legged dogs. Then before we know it, it's the blind dogs or the dogs with nubby tails.

Then what? Do we discriminate against dogs of color? Mutts?

Nip it in the bud, folks. Nip it in the bud.

Blind and nubby tails, eh?

Sounds like we're talking about someone. And, just so you know, I have some fantastic photos of Rubio from this weekend. Adorable stuff, really.
