Is it my imagination, or is Our Favorite Starbucks going to the dogs? This morning, not only did the K-9-to-Human ratio reach an all-time-high, but the dogs themselves seemed to be running the show. A Black Retriever mix, for example, was in Puppy Paradise as it wandered unaccompanied from table-to-table without any owners, leash or tags. I temporarily "adopted" him, just long enough to rename him "Raisely" in honor of the escalating prices at Starbucks. Moments later, Our Favorite Sheepdog Charlie arrived on the scene, a bit more Sheepish than usual. It seems the Sly Dog had a mysterious rendezvous in Palisades Park with a woman named "Lily" who left lipstick smeared across his brow!
