A seat at the table for Rex?

Well I've officially decided it's okay to talk about pets (or animals most Americans wouldn't typically think of eating) on this blog.

Here's a New York Times story on the evolving role of the family pet as, well, one of the family. The reporter interviews people who become hyper-attached to their pets and insist on bringing them everywhere, including to the homes of friends and family where they are not welcome.

I was trying to think of some interesting insight or provocative question to share with you, but really, it's just a funny article. Read it.

This is Helen's puppy Tesla,
whom Helen does not take

Helen could bring her doggie to my house...They are both welcome anytime.

Funny, i'm reading this for the first time the day after i said to Tesla's mom, "You should have brought Tesla tonight." Of course, we have a rabbitt living in the family room....

we also had a sheep who came in during Sunday dinner and a cat who ate at the table with us - he ate cat food with his paw.......
