In the States pets are more and more prevalent. On CNBC this morning they are reporting on workers who want to take their pets along when they return to the office. Too often one comes across the pathetic sight of 250lb men walking tiny, fluffy dogs.
The trend seems to be away from real dogs, you’ll never see a Rottweiler these days. Fluffy, small yappers a big man can hold in his hand. What the blue blazes is the attraction.
Perhaps this is evidence of some form of emotional deprivation in our increasingly internet driven world.
