  1. Did they talk about the menu at Peter Luger? Stock options? His old trusty leather briefcase he bought at Orbach’s?

    Has he never met a dog?

  2. Pretty much the last thing to do when meeting a dog. To most dogs that’s an aggressive move and you may wind up with stitches. Under the head can be ok for pets, never over, if he’s not your dog. You would think a billionaire would have a clue or maybe one of his 12 armed guards were hoping to see some blood from this prick?

  3. I’m up here in the frozen hell that is Burlington right now. I can attest that the dog is the best and brightest Burlington has to offer.

  4. Sheesh! Lots of dogs know how to shake hands. Mine does, as do most of my friends’ dogs. You just have to offer your hand and say “shake” or “give me five”.

    Also, when did Michael Bloomberg become “Mike”? All of his ads, of which there are many say “Mike will get it done”. I had never heard him referred to in the diminutive of his name. Now, all of the sudden he is Mike.
