Guilty as charged!
According to this article on MSNBC, Americans spoil their pets. Well, no kidding! Most days my dog eats better than the average person below the poverty line in the United States, not to mention the world. I have toys for her and special treats to help keep her breath clean. These days, I let her sleep pretty much anywhere she feels like it, but I had a “luxury” bed for her, until she got so frustrated at being locked up all day that she tore it apart. I used to make special, home-baked treats for her, and when I have the time, I’ll start doing that again, too. I have a special safety-harness for her to wear when we go for rides in the car. Yep, she’s pretty well taken care of. And, I have to admit, I refer to myself as her “Daddy” and to her as my “Little, Brown Girl”. But, I haven’t started making her clothes yet. Yet.
Actually, I think that’s about the most mean-spirited thing you can do to a poor, defenseless doggie, to force them to wear “coture”. Though, I have to admit, my bitch would look good in one of those leather jackets. Nah, I’d rather Hilda just be a dog. Just like kids should be allowed to be kids and not grow up too fast by taking care of themselves, dogs should just be dogs, not anything more or less.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to go share my breakfast with my plain, old, brown dog.
