They Should Change the Definition of a Dog’s Life
Do you know those people who treat their dogs like family members, or even like babies? Many Americans do. Dogs were always considered “man’s best friend” and humans naturally anthropomorphize animals in order to connect and better relate to them. They celebrate their dog’s birthday (even Bark Mitzvah if they’re Jewish!), they buy their dog lavish gifts, and take professional photos of their dog, similar to pregnancy, wedding, or baby photos.
We Americans even have gourmet pet grocers, organic pet food, and dog TV. Lots of Americans treat their dogs like human beings or even better than human beings. Some dog experts think this might not be such a great idea, but don’t tell that to people who sleep with their dogs in bed and buy them birthday presents!
