Dog’s best friend

My youngest daughter has to work tomorrow! On Thanksgiving!

What does she do? She works at an animal hospital. She had to go in to keep the dogs company!!!

“Keep the dogs company? You mean a dog can’t be alone for one day?”

“Dad, 200 people are paying the hospital to keep their dogs company over the holidays.”

I guess things have changed. In the not too distant past, a dog was frequently referred to as man’s best friend. Now, I guess man has become dog’s best friend.

No matter how much we try to deceive ourselves, they are still just dogs. No matter how much we flatter ourselves in our imaginations about our pet’s “loyalty” to us and “emotional dependence” upon us, they still remain animals. Your precious “Fluffy” or prized “Bruiser” will gladly abandon your house to come over to mine if I start feeding it better than you do.
