Attention childless couples in Arlington
  • Arlington Cat December 4, 2012 - 9:05 am #60300 Reply

    The third annual “Santa Paws” pet photos with Santa will be taking place tonight from 6-9 PM at Dogma Bakery in Shirlington.  Please have you dog wear his or her best Christmas sweater for your Christmas card photo.

    I hear Fairlington childless couples will be walking down the hill together tonight in a parade like formation for this event.

    What’s with all the posts on “childless couples”?  Both here and in the main site, you seem to be focused on that today!

    Serious question not necessarily pertaining to childless couples:  Why do people feel the need to treat their pets as if they were people?  I get that pets are part of the family…

    That bugs me.  Pets are pets, and kids are kids.  They are not the same thing.  I remember reading one of those advice columns where the writer was explaining how her friend got pissed at her because after the friend lost a child, the writer tried to empathize by describing how she felt when her pet died.  Writer didn’t understand why that made the friend upset.  Totally freaking clueless. 

    And I don’t want a picture of your dog on your Christmas card.  I don’t care what your dog looks like or how you’ve dressed him in a sweater.  Maybe that’s just me, or I’m too bitter this morning, but I hate cards like that.

    I hate getting them and then sending them because I feel like I have to reciprocate. It’s a waste of money. I agree. Nobody cares.

    I knew a woman who at a condo board meeting compared her raising a dog to a father raising a three year old boy.   I was astounded by the analogy.

    I knew a woman who, at a condo board meeting, compared herself raising a dog to a couple raising a two year old boy.  I was floored she made the analogy with a straight face and with such self righteous conviction.
