  • It is amazing the recipies that companies will think up for dogs. It truly is. Dog pie, jerky for dogs, you name it. And it seems that in recent years, a project has formed to turn canines, who have been meant to guard our dwellings for centuries, into the world's newest version of children. It's almost at a point where whatever human food you can think of, there is a version for dogs. Now, I love animals, don't get me wrong, but isn't this just a bit ridiculous? Dogs and Humans were made differently for a reason. And now what? There is a good chunk of people out there who sleep on the streets and are haunted by hunger, while some pooches feast on gourmet treats that make MY mouth water!
    I mean, REALLY. Twice in my life I have ended up in Petsmart or some other animal-crazy store, and was utterly tempted by the display of "cookie treats" (for dogs). I couldn't tell they were for dogs. All I could tell was that here was a show case of delicious-looking pastries, and that I HAD to have one. My mother was smart in not stopping me. One bite and I nearly broke a tooth.
    To this day I am still tempted by the majority of dog treats out there. Even if my goal is just to bring home some bird seed from the pet shop, I will be confronted on all sides by heaps of doggy treats that seem to just keep coming:

    "Turkey Jerky for dogs!"

    "Ruff Ruff Pez treats!"

    "Healthy diet vegetable mix!"

    "Chicken-flavored gourmet!"

    "Pastries to "Bark" for!"

    And, the newest one out there, "Frozen Yogurt for Dogs!"

    Well, at least when there's a food crisis in the world, we can always turn to dog food.
