I was walking Diva this morning (Ferdie refused to come as usual) and passed the little shop round the corner. I am a regular customer and know the bloke well and I needed some cigarettes. Rather than take Diva home and go out again, I just opened the door and asked if she could come in just long enough for me to get my cigs. Yeah, fine, he says. Then this bloke who came in behind me says: You shouldn't bring a dog in the shop. I know, I says, that's why I asked and she isn't going anywhere near the food. He must have heard me ask, so why not keep his opinions to himself? If the proprietor says she can come in, what's it got to do with him?
