A glimpse into the future

I dropped my daughter off at the animal hospital today. On Thanksgiving!

Evidently, to more than a few people, our pets imagined “emotional health” is now more important than setting aside a time to be thankful to God.

As I headed home, I thought of the growing trend of people treating their pets like children. How “cute” it all is! How trendy!

Where will this anthropomorphizing end?

Let me venture a guess…

Since it is currently acceptable to treat animals like children, how long will it be before some pop culture television show or magazine does an “exposé” of some hot, “edgy” chicks in New York or San Francisco or Los Angeles who have chosen to make “Bruiser” their partner?

It may already have happened as far as I know. I don’t frequent those “hip”, dark cultural alleys.

You say that is sick. Who are you to impose your morality on her?…or me?

Seriously, what is to stop it? After all, who is she harming? If it makes her happy…

And while we are at it, why can’t she and “Bruiser” be “married”? Why should we limit it to two humans?
