We're Taking Over The World!

At least according to The New York Times! In today's Arts Section, there's an article titled, "Meet the New Stars of the Screen: Cats and Dogs Playing Cute" that talks about how our pets "have been slowly hypnotizing us by taking over the things we humans love most of all: our screens." It goes on to talk about all the popular animal shows on the National Geographic Channel (home of The Dog Whisperer) and Animal Planet, including their planned shows and specials-it's endless! The writer also takes time to mention the countless animal You-Tube videos watched and calculate the human seconds wasted-ha! As if humans had better things to do...
Read that article here: www.nytimes.com/2010/07/24/arts/television/24dogs.html?_r=1&ref=arts.

And a few days ago, there was an article in the Home Section of The Times titled, "Raising the Bar on Pet Decor: It's Their House Too" which details all the cool things humans are doing to their homes to accommodate us pets-from armoire-like "feeding stations" to  built in kitty bathrooms and playgrounds. Read that article and see some great photos here:

Those humans are finally getting the big picture, don't you think? Personally, I'm not into world dominance, but equality? I'm all for it! What do you all think?

P.S. Stay tuned because tomorrow we'll have the long awaited tribute to my predecessor, "The Great Carsoni", better known as Carson, the Wire Fox Terrier. (Parental Unit finally got the pictures scanned :-).

Can you imagine what that Times writer would think if he/she knew how many of us have human secretaries typing up our own blogs???

This is all so very true. Animals are taking over the humans which is a great thing. We are so much smarter than those hoooomans. We don't worry about tomorrow, today or yesterday. Just what is happening right now. Great articles.
Hope you have a great Sunday.

Glad we all agree on this issue!

You know, we thought dogs were gaining the equality we're so deserving of - BUT, just last week there was an article in our local newspaper (SC) saying that DHEC was making it super hard for restaurants to allow dogs even on their outside eating areas! BOO! and Hiss! What's up with that? We're not gonna take this sitting down! Who's with us?
Ummm, following from the blog hop! Nice to meet ya!

We'll have to get together on this and FIGHT for our rights-the least they could do is allow us on the patios! :-).
