Fun with hot dogs.
Oh, what I wouldn't give to be a dog. It's the life, let me tell you. The sheer simplicity is almost overwhelming. To be so happy at the thought of food, a walk, your owner coming home, and auto-fellatio. You get praised for lying around and being lazy. You get to shout at passers by you don't like. It's almost like being an English football fan! And the best part of it all is you don't have any of life's more refined experiences with which to compare your relatively mundane life and limited cuisine. You LIKE eating pooh, for fuck's sake.
But not all hounds are so lucky. Some are resigned to a life of hardship and squalor. No love from a caring family, not knowing where their next meager meal is going to come from, exposed to the elements and miserable. Thank God for the kind, generous humans among us who take the time to care for these neglected canine souls. They are the real guardian angels walking among us.
Never miss an opportunity to help. Words to live by.
And if that opportunity comes in the form of an awesome amount of fun, then you really have NO excuse! Tomorrow the Animal Welfare Society Stellenbosch is hosting a day in which you get to bring joy to the shelter dogs in their care as well as doing some good in the process. Did I mention how much fun is involved for you? You get to walk a dog through the beautiful Winelands of Stellies - there is a long and a short route to choose from - and afterwards you get to enjoy cake, cooldrink and boerewors rolls. Join Tarty Farty Tequila Party and myself at our soon-to-be-famous Mung Grill! We'll be spending the day making boerewors rolls for you! A more South African day of blissful fun in the sun you could not ask for!
So let's see a bunch of you all there tomorrow. It's at the Animal Welfare Society Stellenbosch located on Devon Valley Road (which is just off the left of Adam Tas - R310) once you've passed Distell coming in from the Neethlingshof side. The dog walking hours are from 9h30 - 14h00, so please feel free to pop in, bring a leash, and have the best day of your life! Nothing lifts the spirits like seeing all those tails wagging...
R20 per person for a walk and R10 per dog. I'll be serving you sausage, and hoping the hounds don't make off with it all cartoon style...
I can't wait to be like "carnival folk".
At least it's for a good cause.
NGDG: The smug old man who changed my headlamp actually giggled when I removed the little plastic bonnet. I allowed him his fun. Because he'll die at that Midas and I'll cherish the memory of when last I bought bulbs there: his arm got trapped in my Rover's wheel housing and he whimpered like a bitch.
Spread The Love. Doggy Style!
