#WDYS — Chick Magnet

Alan didn’t particularly like dogs. But he loved girls. And when he passed by a pet store one evening on his way home from work and saw an adorable, furry little puppy in the window, he came up with a plan.

He walked into the pet store and asked the clerk, “How much is that doggie in the window?” It didn’t really matter what the price was, Alan had made up his mind. He bought the dog, a dog carrier, dog food, snacks, toys, the whole nine yards.

Alan brought the dog home, named him Toby, fed him, cleaned up Toby’s messes, and got a rough first night’s sleep. But Alan was bound and determined. So the next day, being a Saturday, Alan put Toby in the carrier, slung the carrier over his shoulders, and took a walk toward the city park.

As soon as he walked out of his apartment building, Toby was doing his magic. He was irresistible and women — and a few men — couldn’t pass Alan and Toby without stopping to pet and fawn all over Toby. And Alan couldn’t have been more pleased.

Yes, Toby was the perfect chick magnet, just as Alan had expected him to be. But what caught Alan by surprise was how, over time, Toby grew up and into the best, most loyal friend Alan could ever have imagined.

    This reminds me of a neighbor I had. He was a good-looking guy in his mid-twenties and would bring home a puppy (and subsequently new women every night). As soon as the puppy hit the 9-12 month mark, it would disappear and be replaced with a younger pup (and more women). I think the guy had 6-7 puppies in the 4 years he lived next door… puppies are definitely chick magnets 😂😂
