Does it drive you crazy when....

when people refer to their pets as "fur babies". And dress them up in cutesy little clothes? (not talking about something to keep an animal warm..I mean like frilly stuff). Animals were not meant to wear clothing. They are not people. No matter how close you feel to them or how much you love them, they are NOT your children.

  • With all the negativity in the world someone found some more to complain about. Do I have dogs in clothes? No. Do I care if other ppl do? No. A lot of those ppl with the dogs have frown children and have dogs as companions(it makes you live longer and lowers stress). A lot of ppl have dogs for protection and some have dogs just to have them. Regardless, it's really not worth complaining over. Just laugh at it and move on. You want to know what angers me? People who abuse children in all forms. THAT'S something to be angry about, not a poodle in a tutu.

  • Oh yeah. One of the teachers DD had before was like this with her dogs Max and Molly. She made little wedding outfits for them and they had a doggie wedding. She is a very sweet woman, and a wonderful teacher, but she treated her dogs like people. Put different doggie costumes on them every day. Ridiculous. But she was probably THE BEST Special Ed teacher my daughter has ever had, so I'll forgive her nuttiness. :)
