Apparently yoga teachers in Boulder don’t get lessons on doggie dharma. Or at least this one in particular missed the session on Chihuahua-himsa – as in you don’t “walk” a dog outside your car while you drive it! Acupuncturist and yoga teacher Joan Renee Zalk was dogsitting the pup when she had the little thing running at 10-15 miles an hour alongside the car, for a “walk”
Zalk was spotted by the upstanding citizens that do reside in Boulder who phoned the police. She was subsequently booked on suspicion of animal cruelty and menacing felony (witnesses said she made a gun-related threat when approached), though seems to not have an issue with the incident.
“If it is illegal to walk the dog that way, just tell me and I won’t do it again,” Zalk told police.
To which the Boulder community cried, “ride a bike!” Geez, you’d think with all the cyclists in B-ville, car dogwalking would be unheard of. It wasn’t even a Prius.
Further interest lies in the comments on Gawker where the discussion turns to the credibility and “real job”ness of a “professional yoga teacher” in the world we live in, where both sides are debated with gusto.
Just a snidbit:
