JOGGER S PAW AND THE CRITTER CAR

 

In the United States, among the yuppies, as they sit over their lunchtime Perrier, the main topics of conversation are money and the strain of jogging, especially upon their pet dogs.

1………………………………………

Doggie joggers are done in from pounding the burning pavements. All summer long, the 95 degree days make the sidewalk searing hot. As pet owners insist their pets accompany them, hot spells result in burnt paws and seared foot-pads. But, although there is no cure, jogger s paw can be prevented. Davia Gallup knows the dog-jog scene.

2………………………………………

Ms Gallup is particularly strong on jogging with a dog in a fog, and on dealing with any skunks or porcupines one may jog across. She says that owners must keep their pet’s feet away from the hot concrete and the burning asphalt, especially in Texas. And pets should start gradually. They might, for example, begin with three 20-minute runs a week. She says that statistics show that today many dogs are overweight, just like people…

3. ………………………………………

In Houston, things may be tough, but in New York, man s best friend can take it easy. He doesn t even rave to go out for his walkies. He can take the critter car. The critter car is the brainchild of Ms Barbara Meyers. She was a suffering pet owner. She had been ill herself and was unable to drive her dog, Duke, a German shepherd, from her home in Brooklyn for frequent visits to an animal hospital in Manhattan. Ms Meyers said the she had a very difficult time when Duke was ill.

4. ………………………………………

She invested $50,000 and now operates two critter cars, Chevrolet station wagons, which take pets to vets, groomers, hotels, parks and anywhere else they want to go. The driver of one of the critter cars is John Feyko. He explains how he came to take the job, saying that he used to be a straight taxi driver. He was stabbed and beaten up three times – all for $160. Then one night he was waiting at a traffic light and made the mistake of leaving his cab window open. Someone grabbed his hair and stabbed him in the arm. They did not get any money.

5. ………………………………………

You see, most cab drivers won’t stop for people with animals. They don’t want the smell in the car, they re afraid of being bitten, and if it is raining, animals can make the seats muddy. The next passenger gets his pants dirty – and sues the driver. There’s too much risk.

6. ………………………………………

New York is a city where you can buy mink-lined coats for dogs, silver engraved plates for their dining pleasure, and little shovels called “pooper scoopers” for clearing up their mess.

7. ………………………………………

One owner explained: “Old bones on the carpet don’t look nice, so we buy rawhide chewy treats in familiar food shapes. They don’t make the place look a mess. We sometimes also buy a pizza made specially for the dogs. If the family is having pizza, it s nice for the dog to have something that looks the same.”

A. She started the world s largest race for dogs and their owners. It brings together 1000 six-legged duos in Houston, Texas, for a two-mile test of obedience and training. Now she has written a book, Running with Man s Best Friend.

B. Being pampered is probably as bad for animals as it is for people. Your pet could become irritable and bad-tempered, constantly demanding more delicacies and making your life a misery. Better a working dog than a lap-dog.

C. Still, he knew then that he should look for calmer waters. He answered an ad, driver wanted, must love animals. Now he drove the critter car.

D. As far as their pets are concerned, the money is unimportant. What matters to the jogging doggy is the heat of the sidewalk.

E. People treat their animals well in New York, but I have seen some who are very over-pampered. Their owners buy them expensive food and clothing.

F. Owners can also take their pets to the Doggie Deli in Manhattan s fashionable Sutton Place. Here the pampered pooch can munch on chewy rawhide treats shaped like doughnuts, hamburgers, meat balls and fried chicken pieces.

G. Eventually she recovered and was able to drive him herself. But after he died she started the critter car service because she did not want other pet owners to go through the transport difficulties that she had experienced.

H. Dog owners can help create the total animal, equipped to cope with the dog-eat-dog stresses of modern life. Serious behaviour problems result from modern dogs having too little to do.
