Animals Are Not Purses, And Other Obvious Realities

I can’t believe we need to go over this again, but animals are living, breathing beings. They are not inanimate objects into which you can store your lipgloss, wallet and cell phone, so why, why, why, would you carry a dog around like that.

What is it with you bulldogs and skateboards? Whatever it is, don’t ever change, because bulldog/skateboard shenanigans are a foundational element of all that is right with the world.
