Goldy over at Seattle’s Stranger has an excellent argument in favor of dogs over guns:
A few days after adopting our dog Feisty as an eight-week-old pup, I had to drive up to Bellingham to participate in a panel discussion. Feisty was too young to be left alone for the half-day I’d be gone, so I brought her along for the ride. But I didn’t trust leaving her alone in the car for the hour-long panel. So I grabbed the baby sling I’d kept as a cherished memento from my daughter’s babyhood, and conducted the panel with a puppy strapped to my chest.
If there’s anything more adorable than a baby in a baby sling, it’s a puppy.
As expected, an audience member eventually asked about the puppy sling, to which I claimed self defense: “My blog generates a lot of threatening comments and emails,” I quipped, “so I make it a point never to go out in public without a puppy.” I mean, what better way to diffuse a potential hate crime, I imagined…
