Me and Dogs

Let’s get one thing straight I don’t like dogs. They may be man’s best friend but tell man to keep them on a tight leash. My earliest experience with dogs was when I was a kid. I used to live in Queens and in the part of town where I lived everyone had a back alley. Good for drug dealers and for pulling out of makeshift driveways. The guy next door had two pit bulls with a tenacious appetite for human flesh. If they saw you anywhere near their owner’s fence they would come running. Teeth bared eyes fixed on you. Their barks were deep and throaty, strong enough to paralyze you with fear. If there wasn’t a chain link fence between us there would have been a serious mauling.

Then there was King he lived further up the alley. I don’t know his breed but he was the size of a goat, he was mild mannered but we would duck back into our backyard when we saw him coming anyway. It seemed everyone had a dog in my neighborhood and they all wanted to play when you were playing. I’ve been chased off of my own lawn, been pursued on my bike and been snapped at when getting off the bus.

So yeah dogs suck and if you don’t like it, well then…bite me!
