I know this trend has already reached its peak, but what’s up with the dog in a handbag craze? Having something to carry one’s pet in is quite practical, but I can’t help but think that a lot of people use their dogs as a fashion accessory. No living creature should be used as an accessory, unless it’s a completely willful boyfriend at a family gathering.
I was on the train the other day, and the woman next to me had a chihuahua. This by itself would be okay, but the chihuahua was decked out in a frilly red sweater that would make Katie Holmes look twice. Seriously, my sweaters aren’t that elaborate and girly, and I try. The chihuahua looked really uncomfortable. It blinked and squirted liquid out of its eye (not cute), and then it winked at me!
It was time to get off the train.
Seriously though, is anyone else bothered by the rat dog trend? Am I wrong to say that pets should be pets, and nothing else?
