Daisy our Wonder Dog does not like the dog park
Or dog food (chicken, please, and no skin, thank you.)
Or dog collars (she prefers bandanas)
Or dog biscuits (she will make an exception for Newman Gourmet Peanut Butter Treats)
She does not care for dog groomers, preferring to shower with my Kiehls shampoo.
I get it.
I just don’t think that Daisy likes being labeled.
And humans tend to label things
We like things in nice neat little categories.
Do you know anyone who has been labeled?
Did anyone ever try to stick a label on you
and then try to push and shove you until they had you where they wanted you?
Do a Daisy.
Refuse the offer.
Yank that label off!
It may hurt a bit if you have been wearing it for a while, but do it!
Ah! There you are!
Nice to meet you!
And that’s Poetiquejustis
