Dog Gone It

By Mark Siegrist

March 31, 2021

I guess I need to brush up on my dog greeting etiquette.

All of this masking up and social distancing gets a guy out of practice.

Or maybe it was just the muzzle on my mouth.

Words tend to get a little garbled, and misunderstood.

Seeing the young man and his spotted pup approaching, struck an emotional chord.

A rush of childhood memories.

We raised a number of them.

Not 101 Dalmatians, but quite a few.

Without thinking I just blurted it out.

“I love Dalmatians.”

The flattered canine happily lunged in my direction.

Like a long-lost friend.

His owner, unamused, suddenly pulled on the leash with a slight growl of his own.

And off they went.

The pup and I never connected.

Maybe on a future neighborhood walk.

I’ve already taken my shots.

And still masking up.

Now just waiting for that “New Normal” to begin.

Dog gone it.
