Someone in my neighborhood has one of these ridiculous contraptions. I shake my head and chuckle every time I see it parked on her front walk. I gave her the benefit of the doubt that maybe the dog was old or handicapped. However, I have seen her out walking the dog in this damn stroller twice now. That dog looks as peppy as any puppy. Does this woman realize she looks like a total moron with her little dog in this stroller with it's zipper cover? (That zipper is obviously a necessity, because heaven forbid the dog actually jump out of the stroller and walk, or worse, RUN!)
I'll admit, I am not the "pet" person that many people are. I love animals and I have loved having pets over the years. But they are pets. I don't consider them people and while they were a PART of our family, I didn't exactly consider them a MEMBER of the family. Does this make sense? I cried when they were gone, I was concerned when they were sick, but I drew the line at treating them like they were humans. They were well loved, but they were animals. I wonder what on God's green earth possesses people to totally lose sight of the fact that their pet is an animal and not a person?
And now for your visual entertainment, I present a variety of pet strollers:
First we have the dog stroller. This is the exact stroller the woman in my neighborhood has. Clearly, this woman doesn't know what to do with her money, because based on the website I looked at, she wasted a $100 bucks on this!
My entire life, up until about 8 years ago, I have had cats for pets. That means I had cats for about 33 years. I know enough about cats to know this thing should be considered a torture chamber and anyone using this should be reported to the SPCA and/or PETA immediately. I can't imagine any cat that I have ever owned looking forward to this.
For the truly neurotic pet owner who can't buy the typical travel kennel for their beloved pet, you have this.
This is the Pet Gear Travel System and includes a pet carrier, stroller and car seat. It can be yours for $99.99.
So go on now, run out and buy one of these little delights. Then, of course, be sure to video tape your human pet riding along in this and post it on YouTube, your blog and don't forget Facebook, so we can all see. And get a good laugh at your expense.
