Pawsitive evidence

My writing partner, Tony, and I pitched our series about dogs and never sold it. What we kept hearing back was there wasn’t an audience for a show about people and dogs. Especially people who are crazy about there dogs. They were pretty adamant that the average American wasn’t obsessed with their dog.

I give to you, Exhibit A, a conversation with my mother:

 

MOM

Rory has a sore puddie…went to vet on Monday

7:05pm

 

Me

What is wrong with the puddie

 

7:06pm

MOM

We think she stepped on a rock or something sharp. It was all raw and bloody but the vet took care of it. Rory kept licking it and making it worse so I had to buy her socks

7:07pm

Me

HAHAHA

What color?

7:07pm

MOM

She doesn’t think it’s so funny.

7:07pm

Me

Are they designer socks?

7:07pm

MOM

They are white Polo socks size 0-3 mos, with a Polo player

7:08pm

Me

You’re not kidding, are you?

7:08pm

MOM

Nope

7:08pm

Me

Lord

If i wore polo socks around without shoes you’d say i was getting them filthy

7:09pm

MOM

They were the only ones that had cuffs to unroll to the top of her leg so we could tape them on. Otherwise she pulls them off. she is getting them filthy

7:09pm

Me

Maybe you could add spats? Or suspenders?

7:10pm

MOM

What a good idea! A suspender that goes over her back from one leg to the other. We could make a fortune

7:10pm

Me

Yes, Mom. Suspenders for dogs. big market

7:11pm

MOM

You haven’t been to Hot Diggity lately

7:11pm

Me

I haven’t

7:12pm

MOM

They are having their annual Dogs in the Park thing and they are looking for models for the fashion show

7:12pm

Me

Is Rory going on the GoSee?

7:12pm

MOM

GoSee?

7:13pm

Me

That’s what models call auditions

7:13pm

MOM

Oh…I don’t thinks so…but she did have a caricature done last weekend

7:13pm

Me

Wait, what?

7:14pm

MOM

They had a fundraiser for the dog park. $10 for a caricature. It was done by an art student from Carnegie Tech

7:15pm

Me

Does it look like her? Did they get her ‘good’ side?

7:15pm

MOM

No, it’s a full frontal.
