Isn’t the world going a bit crazier or is it me?
I was reading an article a few weeks ago about a new store in an area of a city where they were selling clothes to humans that matched their pets. Let me get this straight, you can buy an outfit for your pet and then the store can match an outfit for you, the human. The world is going nuts in a doggie bag!
Could you picture me walking down Main street with my two turtles wearing matching suits. I can see the three of us wearing matching green capes. (to match their eye color, of course!) They would flow over their shells and mine would flow down my back. When a slight breeze hits us we would look like three little peas in a pod! Picture it if you can?
Have we lost our minds or our we so bored that we spend our times (and money) matching our outerwear with our pets? Do these people match their underwear also? Do their dogs wear thongs?
Am I the only one to think this is a crazy thing to do? I mean if nature wanted dogs to wear clothes their mommies would put on their first tutus. I also bet that these animal moms would put better clothes on their kids! When you see a bull-dog in a tutu and he is eyeing you with mercy with those cute, pleading eyes to get him out of there, you know the human/animal world is out of sorts.
Ok, enough about the tutus, but a dog is a dog. They are what they are. The problem starts when humans dress them to be something else. You all know what I am writing about……..you cannot turn a dog into a monkey, even if you dress it like one! Animals do have dignity and I see it slipping as humans dress their pets to be another animal. It is a disgrace to animals everywhere! I wonder what they are thinking when you are shoving their paws into a monkey suit?
I do love my turtles. I take good care of them. When I got them they became my duty to look after them and that means feeding them, taking them to the vet and making sure their home is right for them. I believe most owners do take care of their pets to the highest degree. But let me make it clear, my turtles are my pets not my children!! I did not have them, I got them. I did not produce them, They were a gift from a friend.
Pets are given or bought. Sometimes I truly think the line has been blurred. Pets are not children and I would love to be there for the first women to deliver a dog.
I think us humans have too much time on our hands and sometimes too much money lying around. But next time I see a big bull-dog wearing a tutu I will scream and maybe next time you might too!
