Dogs are 2nd Class Citizens?

Man’s best friend in the back of the bus!

Of course I’m not considering dogs human – however, I certainly believe I’d rather be around sweet pooches than some nut jobs in this city!

But here’s a rarity in Hoboken – an entrance to a building (The Sovereign) that is dedicated just for dogs & walkers! Why is that necessary? What’s wrong with the front lobby? Are they performing surgery? Prayer vigils?

Frankly – if you looked at the Hoboken Police Blotter on a regular basis, you’d imagine that another entrance should be established for violent, vomiting drunks as well.

Consider it the VIP door. When staying in hotel’s with grand ballrooms, it is important to have your pet well protected from the fleas the political and media elite carry.

I find that anyone is outraged to be odd. The fact is the doggie door is actually helpful to the residents that live there with dogs since it is right off the elevators and a quicker exit to the outside. I don’t think the intent was that dogs aren’t good enough for the main lobby. But having said that DOGS ARE NOT HUMANS PEOPLE and if they wanted to designate a separate door for dogs that would be their right. And what is up with this constant dogs vs. kids BS. It’s weird. I have kids and I love dogs. I would never compare the two though. One is a human being and the other is a beloved pet, end of story. Dogs don’t require braces nor go to college but I can list hundreds of things kids give you that dogs don’t but I won’t because it’s just a plain stupid argument. Comparing oranges to apples.

Why is this such a difficult pill to swallow? They are ANIMALS – as are the owners who decide to simply walk away from the fresh, steamy piles of poo that their beloved pets leave on our town’s sidewalks and parks. I dont blame the condo association in the least. I can only imagine these idiots letting their dogs drop a deuce in the lobby, look around to make sure nobody’s looking, and then walk away. Who needs that? Enjoy your own doggie door….

Do you guys feel as outraged that businesses also have designated delivery doors?

Amen brother. Dogs rule.
All they want is to be in our company, sleep at our feet or in the bed, they are one of the family. Unconditional love, no braces, not college, no marriage costs, they won’t ask for the car keys, they won’t come home late, won’t come home late and drunk, don’t have dumb ass friends, don’t ask for money and if we fix them will not get knocked up or knock up some other bitch. All in all they rock. Get a dog not a kid.

AMEN. And I happen to prefer the companionship of dogs to most people. Dogs are the best.

Amen brother— dogs rock. They are the best. Unconditional love. All they want is our company and they dont’ talk back, won’t wreck the car, no college, no braces and for female dogs will not come home knocked up as long as we fix them. What more can you ask for.[quote comment=”207234″]AMEN. And I happen to prefer the companionship of dogs to most people. Dogs are the best.[/quote]
