What’s up with the Dog?

557860925I grew up with a dog.  I love dogs.  But, I am fascinated with people’s dog obsessions.  What is up with that?  My parents never took us shopping with dog in tow.  Certainly not with the dog in a baby bjorn made for a dog.

I’m strolling on upper Madison this afternoon and walked into a very high end store.  There is a woman in there, with her child running around and a HUGE dog on a leash that she is not exactly controlling.  What’s with that?  She couldn’t leave the dog at home?  Did she ever consider that while she is trying on shoes and her dog is slobbering all over the place that someone might be allergic to the dog? 

What can I say….fascinating.
