I knew a dog from the dog park


For years I would take my dog and he would be there. Nice old boy, harmless. He was popular with the other dogs because he had run off a mean pit bull. After that incident, he promised a new kind of dog park, one where the purebreds got along with the mongrels and the gates would be opened to any chihuahuas who wanted to enter. He even pledged to wipe out rabies and bring down the cost of Alpo.

Then, despite his promises to the contrary, he started to hang out only with his own pack of purebreds. Who needs those mongrels, he thought, I’m gonna team up with Saint Bernard and his squad and do things our way. After all there are more of us.

Problem was, he didn’t figure that two members of the Purebred Pack, Mastiff and Saluki, weren’t interested in changing all the dog park rules. They understood that one day, if no one could afford treats and everyone had to get shots and wear muzzles all the time, the mongrels might rise up and take over the dog park. And then the Purebreds would be screwed.

Part of me felt bad for the old dog. He was sad, tail between his legs, having realized the Purebreds had used him just to run off the pit bull. He could have partnered with the mongrels like he promised, but now it was too late. Today, the dog park remains hopelessly divided and Purebred Popularity is in the tank.
