American Pets

According to a pet owner survey, 79 percent of Americans give their dogs holiday and/or birthday presents, and they dole out more cash for dog chow than baby food. Meanwhile, an American Animal Hospital Association poll showed that 33 percent of dog owners admit that they talk to their dogs on the phone or leave messages for them on an answering machine while away.

This was a pet weekend for me - I had to dog sit - and I was by my friend's house and the cat could not leave me alone! I am not an anima person, so both was a bit much for me!

I love my dog, but some get carried away don't they.

Joy said...

Yeah, I don't do any of that for my cat.

Now, you know I love my furry kids, but I do NOT talk to them on the phone, or leave messages for them.
And we do NOT buy them Christmas gifts.
Birthdays. Yes.
Hannukah. Yes, for MaxGoldberg.
Valentines Day. Yes.
Labor Day. Yes.
Flag Day. Who doesn't?
