Doggie Botox?????

Caught last night's episode of 20/20 on Hulu and came away pretty disgusted with people.  Doggie botox?  Really?  The Neutical thing has always bugged me too.  Dogs don't actually care if you give them fake testicles.  They'll still lick themselves balls or not.  It's all about the owners and really, why does it matter if your dog looks un neutered.  I would think that it would be more important to show off that you are a responsible pet owner and have neutered the critter.  For a great dane they run $500 EACH.  Now I can think of about a billion ways to spend $1000 and none of them involve fake testicles for a dog.    I don't understand people.

One lady on the show sometimes calls her kids by her dogs' names.  She said if the entire world showed as much love to everyone as she does her dog, it would be a better place.  I say if she showed as much love to her kids as she does her dogs her home would be a better place.

I'm not an animal hater.  I have always had pets and loved them dearly.  When my great dane Zelda died I closed my store for a couple of days because I simply could not function.  Even so I never called any of my kids Zelda.  I may have mixed the boys names up once in a while but that was my own fault for naming them Teddy and Tommy.  Not twins, but close in age and like any tired mom I sometimes had to go through the list to find the right kid.

Back to my point.   Animals are great.  They can really improve your quality of life and bring happiness to their families.  But there is such a thing as too much focus on your pet.  Makes me wonder what's missing from someone's life when they would rather have their dog in bed than their husband.

And if you have enough cash to get botox for your dog, then you have enough cash to make a difference in someone's life.  Put that money into a scholarship fund for some kid who might not ever go to college without it.  Your dog won't care if he/she has a wrinkle or two.  They are much more secure with their aging bodies than people.
