my pineapple upside down cake is on the road in New York...



..and I am busy. Penny came with me down to the library, which was OPEN and then we went to the Cornell Pot Shop which was closed, dangitall, so no work there, but look at this rude anti-dog sign we sign outside the back door of a cafe.
Then, hoping to hike but not get my a$$ shot off, Penny and I went to the east Ithaca rail trail thingy (was last there with CM and Ben in June!), which is CLEARLY POSTED and walked quite a ways and barked at all the little chipmunks. Cascadilla Creek runs through there, and it is this tiny and pokey little thing, but then it creates this 400 foot gorge and waterfalls just a mile away........

I think health inspectors have hang-ups about dogs in cafes. Obviously cat people.

Barking at the chipmunks is what life should be all about.

Just leave a few chippies around so Momma Kitty can enjoy her morning 'lurk' at my sliding glass door. I love watching her watching them! It's a hoot and that tail of hers speaks silent volumes. Too bad Penny isn't a boy dog, so she could lift a leg and express her own opinion right ON that stupid sign.

I don't think that sign is anti-dog. It is anti-poop. I like dogs, but I really hate it when I am out hiking the trails and the local park and have to concentrate on avoiding piles of dog feces. I don't care if pups want to bark at squirrels, chase rabbits and sniff everyone who walks by. Just please don't leave stuff that might be stepped into accidentally.
