OK, a little rant here. I just hate the way people humanise their animals. For god’s sake, they’re dogs, they’re lovable and they’re important, but do they have to be a child substitute?
According to an itemon the radio this morning, Paris Hilton has a bikini for her dog for the beach. Brittney Spears has taken hers to dancing lessons, and get this! The Beckhams are sending theirs to doggy rehab because t has accidents in the house! Uh? Hello? Try opening the back door and letting it out?
OK, so perhaps this could all be excused as it is going on in America, except that when I was in Babbacombe a few weeks ago, we passed an entire shop dedicated to doggy clothing.
One word … sad.
