People love pets and I completely understand because I love them as well, however what intrigues me is the way some people treat their pets. For instance, my roommate recently bought a Halloween costume for her dog (yes she did) and I was like: Whaaaaaaat, is this really necessary?
While working as a dog walker I noticed that people treat their dogs like human babies. In fact, they buy their dogs strollers, summer and winter clothes, all kinds of toys, beds, little dog houses and even organic dog food – How is that even possible?
I guess I understand why they have such a strong connection with their pets. Most of them work long hours; they don’t have time to hang out with friends or relatives and didn’t have children yet.
The thing is: Dogs are supposed to be dogs! They have to run and play around, get along with other dogs, learn how to socialize as well and eat dog’s food. Why would you want to turn your dog into a pseudo person? Why would you take from them their own identity? Here is something hard for me to understand, because in the end they are just dogs. How about you? What type of relationship you have with your dog?
