"Don't worry - he's friendly!" That's what you usually hear just before the wet slobbery snout starts probing your groin and the pooch's owner either wanders off or stands there grinning like a proud parent. The baffling Urban Dog Brain is a unique specimen in the pet-owning world as their love of city living and prepackaged lifestyle seems to directly correspond with their lousy pet-owning skills and sense of entitlement. They decide to cram an often too-large Fido into their tiny lofty living cubicles and then loudly bitch about the fact that large urban centres aren't more dog-friendly, which in turn compels them to flout the rules. When called on their inconsiderate behaviour the specimen will undoubtedly go into flinty-snippy overdrive with prepared platitudes more in keeping with the mindset of an eight year-old ("it's not fair!"), while positively stinking of the wrongheaded attitude of someone who gives you a dirty look for noticing that they're urinating in public. Angry missives to the local paper are not unheard of either, prompting yet another weary back and forth about what, oh what can be done to placate Dog Brain and provide Rover with all of his doggy needs - except for things like a yard, clean air, and peace and quiet. All because their love of dogs knows no earthly bounds.
