The Oppression of a Species
"Seen any good movies lately?" "Checked out that new cappuccino bar?" I haven't! "Did you catch that Impressionists exhibit at the art museum?" As a matter of fact, I did not. Why? Because, they don't allow dogs in any of those places, or at the grocery store, the mall, the donut shop, or at the hockey game!
You human beings, and I use the term loosely, have no idea how privileged you are. Or maybe you do... Maybe this is the only way you are able to maintain your status as the superior race.
Dogs are good enough to fetch your slippers and to guard the house; but treat us as equals? Never. Then to add insult to injury, there are lots of places that don't let dogs in, but CATS are allowed! How insulting! It does prove my point, however, cats are no threat to your position. I mean, have you ever tried to have a serious discussion with a cat? Take my word for it, cats are pathetic conversationalists. Dogs, on the other hand, are intelligent, perceptive, and charming. A little too much competition for the average Joe at a dinner party, I suppose.
As long as we are not accepted among the public, and continue to be treated, at best, as second class citizens, we will remain in this subservient social status, "Man's best friend." How convenient for you. I, for one, am on to your plan.
I must commend pet stores for being so proactive on this issue. Especially the big warehouse type franchises like PetsMart, my personal favorite, they have recognized who truly wields the financial power in the family, the Dog! I go in and shop at my leisure. It's a good thing I got a raise in my allowance.
