What A Beautiful Dog You Have!
Old people on motorized carts at the grocery store? Totally cool...they probably shouldn't be walking.
Injured people in wheelchairs? By all means, bring it...how else are they going to get around?
Dogs in dog strollers? Um, no. No. And are you kidding me?
The other night, while I was pushing my 12 month old baby (Oh, for non-baby people that's 1 year*) I saw a nice woman pushing a stroller my way. As I looked down to do the obligatory check to see if my child was cuter than theirs, I saw a dog neslted inside. (Not an ugly baby, but an actual dog.)
Dog lovers out there, please help me. Why are you people putting your fully capable, walking animals inside strollers? Was there a massive screw up at the hospital, and by accident you took home a dog, and now no one has the heart to tell you that little Timmy, who seems slightly behind developmentally, is not actually a baby? Or did you misunderstand the vet's directions of getting the pet out for walks? Did you not understand that the pet actually has to do the walking? And lastly, why did you go with the stroller? Haven't you ever thought of using a Baby Bjorn, an Ergo Baby carrier, a Moby Wrap or the Maya Wrap? Didn't you know that all the experts recommend close contact with your baby...oh wait.
* The month count down drives my husband crazy. I've started telling people I'm 34 and 6 months.
