Dogs with jobs and those without

16Oct03

Speaking of canines, I just saw the most remarkable thing on the way home from work. I just saw a dog panhandling.

Right across from the magazine stand in Pape subway station, this big black dog was just lying there quietly with one paw resting possessively on a baseball cap in front of it, in which rested a single loonie. I stopped and looked at it in amazement. Then I looked around to find the owner, but no one was around. The dog appeared to be there all by itself, begging for change.

The irony of the situation is that I’m pretty sure it was a Labrador Retriever, which is, of course, one of the breeds often employed as “working dogs.”
