We’ve come to a sad realization here at The Dog Snobs. What is it you ask? Well, we’re fairly certain that we have are essentially glorified “cruise directors” for our dogs. While we don’t smile nearly as much as cruise directors, nor do we have that crazy desperate look in our eyes (we hope) and a name like “Dan, Dan the Fun Times Man”, we do spend a good amount of our time catering to our dogs needs. Between shuttling them around to various activities, planning excursions, and making sure that they keep busy and happy, we’re pretty sure they’re controlling our lives.
Perhaps it would be more fair to compare ourselves to Soccer Moms, but god help us if we ever get those stick figure families on the back of our car. If you ever see us driving around in a minivan adorned with those stickers, you have full permission to mock us. Endlessly. And publicly.
Mind you, we enjoy doing so many activities with our dogs (and it’s not as if our dogs are demanding we take them to ten different classes a week), but we do wonder if it’s normal how much time we spend shuttling them around. An hour and a half to this class, two hours to that one. Forty five minutes to pick up that one special food they can have, thirty to take them to that park where people don’t side eye you for dropping the leash. It’s getting out of hand. At least cruise directors get tipped. What do we get? The joy of a dog that may or may not vomit in our shoes and the joy of filling up yet another tank of gas.
All this being said, do we plan to cut back anytime soon? Nope. We just heard there’s a new class being offered 45 minutes away….
