The Black Man With The White Dog
Monday night, I walked Sparky so late I actually ran into a neighbor, "The Black Man With The White Dog", walking his dog early, before going to work (I, of course, am his photo-negative, "The White Man With The Black Dog").
The white dog (a Bichon Frise) is eleven years old, and even though younger than Sparky, is hobbled to the point of barely being able to walk. But we all know how much dogs love their walks. Who can deny them? So these days, "The Black Man With The White Dog" carries his dog in his arms all around the neighborhood, putting his dog down every now and then to visit favorite spots.
