Starting 2016 in Irony

On the first day of this new year, 2016, Catherine and I were out for our early morning walk. We were starting the New Year with brisk Screenshot 2016-01-01 09.36.54resolve when a van slowly approached us on the walking path that cuts through the recreation center.

The  van was  decorated with advertisements for  PET CONTAINMENT SERVICES-“Best Fencing Around!” and “Most reliable hidden dog fence…no getting around it!”

We knew that kind of crawl; the driver was obviously looking for something…and because the promises emblazoned on every available space – front, back, and sides -were also accompanied by graphics of dogs of different breeds, the driver could only be looking for one thing:

“Have you seen my dog? A shepherd mix?” the man asked.

No getting around it… situational irony at its best.

Welcome, 2016.
