last dog of 2016


i spotted this guy back in early december
the one snowy day we had
he was licking his paw

he's licking the salt off his paws

a sight like that really bugs me

if the dog's owner been present
 i would have said something


stores and residences 
salt the sidewalks
to
 keep ice from forming

when the snow begins to melt
from rising temps
ice forms as soon as the temps drop

dangerous for pedestrians
worse for animals

grrrrrrr

wishing
 you all
an ice free new year's eve
see you in 2017!

  1. It hadn't occurred to me before a few weeks ago. It's a good reason for dogs to be wearing boots.

    Happy New Year to you.

  2. Grrr! We own a Boston Terrier, we are very careful about the salt on Molly's paws. It is very painful.

    Happy New Year my NYC pal.
