Gee, Has Puppy Love Gone Too Far?

11 Jun

Driving down Peachtree on a sunny Thursday afternoon, I was stunned, confused, and horrified to see a young woman, pushing her bulldog in a pink stroller. Yes, a stroller.

I did a little research and found that there are, in fact, websites devoted to purchasing the perfect stroller for your pup. Oh and don’t you worry, feline fans – there are kitty strollers, too! The pet strollers cost anywhere from $100-$300. Even Jeep has jumped on the pet wagon with some of their own stroller designs (although one website claims it has sadly been discontinued).

I positively adore dogs and animals, but this is just too much. I firmly believe that there are far more productive ways to channel your funds and affection than this little gizmo.

Perhaps it’s somewhat practical for an older pooch with limited mobility, but otherwise it is just lazy. Isn’t it harming rather than hurting your furry friend to deprive them of exercise? I’m sure we’ll hear about the American pet obesity epidemic before too long.
