Why do be people take dogs when out shopping ?

You can walk round Wigan these days and count on one hand the number of skirts or dresses worn by ladies as opposed to trousers or jeans. This is not a criticism, just an observation. I have always loved the arcades in Wigan.

Irene
The weather could be too cold!
Having said that it didnt stop lasses wearing mini-skirts in the coldest of winters! In fact I encouraged a number of girl-friends! LOL

Looks like we've got the monopoly today of P-A-D, Irene LOL

I also cant see why anybody would take there fighting dogs to town.

I wonder what area of Wigan does that dog women lives

Comment by: Helen on 3rd February 2015 at 19:37

Now I only said why would people take dog shopping with them ? Staffies are not fighting dogs...unless their owners make the so. I have known many Staffs & they are lovely dogs..its the owners that need sorting.

Alpal the word chav may of come from the romani chavi meaning child. Started out with uneducated youths with false designer clothes, white trainers and overladen with jewellery(bling)and back to front baseball caps.

Mick maybe they are from Shevington.

I am shocked at some of the comments , especially you Giovanni , as one who not only brings knowledge to the forum but also a lovely and warm lightheartedness. I was brought up to believe we Wiganners stuck together no matter what anyone looked like or their personal circumstances were.

Helen you took the words right out of my mouth!
I live in a small town which holds a market every wednesday and whilst we appreciate the visitors prescence why bring one and two dogs (on long long leads ) with them?

Comment by: Giovanni on 4th February 2015 at 22:52

Julie
Mi dispiace.

You're right I didnt intend to offend anyone. Wiganners ad infinitum!

Ignoring the less charitable comments above and returning to dogs and dress, I recall that large dogs and mini skirts were not a good combination. Now the girls* wear jeans, so dogs are practical companions.

*According to Joe Boswell, this term applies to any female person over the age of fourteen.

Where do some of you get off - really, personal remarks. People going about their business, shopping - perhaps just walking through the town A - B and pause for a chat. Young women going about their lives.

Point taken Fart, scusi I mean Fert!!
