So you can imagine my disappointment stopping at 6th and Fairfax yesterday afternoon and seeing this adorable duo of dogitude (at right; click to humongify) tethered to a bike rack and left to patiently fend for themselves in such a desolate place (and smelly too — the noxious odor of sulphur never seems to disipate around that intersection) while their careless guardian no doubt galavanted around inside the 99-cent store on the corner.
When are we gonna learn, people? Bike racks are for bikes!
