When Beagle Man introduced The Roof Rack Report in early September, he said I’m more of a “political animal” than he is. He got that right. But I gotta be honest with you: After the election, my interest in politics does, well, tail off a bit. So I hope you won’t mind if I veer off-track to a really weird item in yesterday’s New York Times: “Finally, a Place in Brazil Where Dogs Can Go For Discreet Sex.” Please! Hey, I might not be an expert in this area — an unfortunate little procedure I had as a pup took care of that — but seriously, dogs and “discreet sex”? Is Rover humping your leg
“discreet”? This ridiculous little Brazilian get-away — Animalle Mundo Pet, they call it — has a dog spa with an ofuro soaking tub . . . whatever that is. It has heart-shaped ceiling mirrors. And it sells Chic Animale perfume for dogs — at $40 a pop. Know how many bones I could get for that? I mean, that’s just idiotic. And, I have to say, a little bit insulting. Cutesy clothes . . . perfume . . . spas . . . Come on, we’re dogs! And honestly? We don’t have a problem with that. So let us, if you’ll pardon the expression, just do things doggy-style.
The Roof Rack Report (#roofrackreport on Twitter, for those who follow me already on @BeagleManHank) will continue to appear on Mondays and will deal with travel, topical subjects, and whenever possible, food. (What? Today’s Tuesday? Ooops. Sorry about that.)
