Are They Human?

What's up with putting silly hats on the dog? Sweaters and other clothing? Look, most of these guys are born with nature-given coats. Anthropomorphism reigns rampant around me.

So, is this something people do just because they think it is cute or is it something far more sinister? Look, I've seen it when pet owners treat their dogs and cats like they are children. Some treat the animals better than they would children. This is a curious thing for me!

Do the dogs enjoy the attention? Do they really feel special when they're wearing that new sweater? I fear the opposite is true. I think that most animals would prefer to be left to their natural clothing.

What of these things we do that are just plain silly?
