Dog Comes to Terms with Pet Store Being Closed
But first, a joke. I have a dog that’s half Pitbull, half Poodle. Not much of guard dog, but a vicious gossip. Ha! I heard that corny little number at the pet store the other day and thought I would share the quote. Spread the humor and let’s keep rolling our eyes and our jokes dry.
Now, for the main event.
Today’s viral video is titled, “Dog upset pet store is closed, refuses to leave.” This video amalgams the stubbornness, intelligence, and love all dogs possesses in a matter of a minute and four seconds. The scene takes place around 11 p.m. in the city that never sleeps. Although it seems that pet stores do close in New York City because this dog just missed her opportunity.
We are presented with Samo—half Beagle, half Labrador— a dog that has ventured to the pet store with her owner after hours. Samo sits down, sullen, undeterred, from the entranceway to NYC pets, her presumably favorite pet store.
Her owner tries to reason with her, “I promise they’re not open, Sam come on,” she tries to coo Samo from her seated position of protest against the pet store operating hours. “I promise they’re closed. Come on. Come on.”
Samo’s owner begins to pull her leash. The dog reluctantly follows her owner before making one final leap toward the entrance. She gazes in the window. Half of what she sees is her reflection. The other half, the pet store beauty that lies disdainfully beyond the dog’s reach.
A whole mountain of dog food, toys, treats, maybe even a new dog bed. The dog does not whine. She does not cry. We only see the emphatic woes in her refusal to budge.
Tough break pup, tough break.
