The People in Your Neighborhood, Part III

Technically, this isn’t really about ornamentation but it IS about the people in our neighborhood who are themselves colorful characters.

So our next door neighbors, those of the cigarette-tossing-into-my-garden-fame, they have this, well, I’ll call it a ‘dog’ for lack of a better term. It’s a “chihuahua” and it’s name is Tinkerbell or Daisy or some such twee nonsense. No, Lacey, that’s what it is. I knew it was like Tinkerbell.

To add insult to injury, the harridan wife takes this, um, ‘dog’ for a walk.  Not a problem, right? Walking the dog. Normal. But, except, no.  Of course not. 

She’s got a dog stroller for it.  I am not even kidding.

Kind of like this but without the snotty model–insert wrinkles, fried hair, shorts and t-shirts)–and without the doggy-visor and without the nice, Stepford-ish park to walk in:

Outward Hound Walk n Roll Pink Pet Stroller Small

And she, meaning the neighbor lady since I have no idea about the snotty model shown above, isn’t even embarrassed to go for walks with the, er, ‘dog’ in it and her husband thinks it’s the funniest thing.

Yeh, funny. That’s not the word that comes to MY mind but use it if you would like.
