Trend Spot: Big Man, Little Dog

It's an increasingly common sight in my neighborhood to see big men—large tough men, the sort you'd wager on in a bar fight—walking little froofy dogs. I'm well aware that pocket-pooches have fully saturated the world of Paris Hilton wannabes, but I confess, I'm surprised to see it trickle down to burly, callous-handed builders and mechanics. It's quite funny. And rather sweet.

    My Dad is a big burly Mainer. He plows a lot of snow here in the winter, but he won't plough an inch with out his little white dog Molly in the cab. It must run in the family... (Nik)
