The Way I See It #238 - New Kids

Dogs are the new kids

"Have you noticed that dogs are the new kids? You take a walk with your kid and your dog, but nobody says, 'What a cute kid!' Instead they say, 'What a cute dog! What’s his name? Is he a rescue?' Maybe if I put a collar and leash on my kid someone will notice her."

-- Judy Gruen, Humorist and author of the The Women’s Daily Irony Supplement.


About the Photo

Meet Leeloo. She was a German Shepherd and Golden Retriever mix we adopted after weeks of figuratively jumping through hoops with one of the local rescue agencies. This was one of those rare moments when she wasn’t tearing up the place like the Tasmanian Devil, and actually sat down for me long enough to take this picture.
