Especially given the looks I was getting from the store clerks...
Now if I can just figure out a way to feed the homeless dogs I see everyday on my walk without
a.) having them maul me
b.) having them follow me
c.) offending anyone
UPDATE: Ok, apparently I'm not too crazy. Saw a guy today on his moped with his dog in his lap (complete with sindoor blessings on the dog's forehead), with his child and wife seated behind him.
