Dog license rant
Ok, since I am a woman, I can say this: somewhere a woman had a hand in this!
I went to the courthouse today to get my kennel license. $55 for a kennel license and ten tags -- five at $10 each and 5 at $1 each, which is fine, really. But I get them, and they are green and in the shape of...
The STATE OF OHIO!!!
Do you know, the state of Ohio is kind of pointy!!!
And, The middle of the top of the state, is kind of down from the two edges where lake Erie is. THAT is where they put the teeny tiny hole for you to find something small enough to affix the pointy nasty thing to the collar!
So even if you FIND a key ring small enough to fit through the hole, it will get all tangled with the rabies tags etc -- that is when it is not poking holes in your dog.
I said, "uhm, they will hurt my dogs."
She said, "because it is pointy, yeah, someone else was saying that."
I said, "I have no idea how I will affix these to the collar, do you have any hooks?"
She said, "no, this is all we got, we did not get the hooks this year.
Just nice. I will have to spend the next six months trying to find miniature key rings!!! And for what, so I can dangle a pointy state of Ohio cutesy license on my dogs' collars.
Forget it. I am leaving them in the envelope in my dog-papers. I will produce them when asked.
I think I am safe in saying that no guy (in his right mind) would buy the tag that looked like our state -- not unless it was half the price of the other tags.
