Why is there a wave of dog obsession at the moment?

Dogs are in at the moment, I’m sure I’m not just making this up. Everyone is showing me pictures of dogs they like or dogs they’ve purchased.

Have you noticed this?

Got wave of dog obsession stuck in my head to the tune of wave of mutilation now

It’s the new bacon!

When you don’t like dogs, the world always seems to be in a state of dog obsession :") prob not gonna go to a gathering tomorrow because there will be 3 dogs (2 of them loud and in-your-face) in a confined space and i can’t deal with it

FTFY (going by the three colleagues who all got dogs recently)

Sub thread: I feel like thoroughbred dogs with all terrible illnesses are getting way more popular because of social media. My old boss was once saying he was getting one of the lads that can’t really breathe properly and get fucked up spines past the age of about 5, somebody pointed out it’s pretty cruel to breed them and he was just shrugging like “yeah but the Mrs wants one so we’re getting one”.

Ha! Thought you meant a wave of people telling everyone they’re not having children (meet loads of them these days)

Also seeing a fair few mates getting dogs because they’ve had children.

Being super defensive is good sign that they know it’s wrong, but they don’t really care and just won’t admit it. Their needs come first. In the same way I meet people who are super defensive about using air b’n’b & uber or being buy-to-let landlords.

Yeah we’ve spoken about this a bit before. The level of suffering varies between breeds (some are fine, some are really not fine) but for the really bad ones it’s basically indefensible and the kennel club are totally complicit and should go fuck themselves as should anyone who continues to breed them.

I wish that was the case where I live. The local pub stank of dirty nappies the other day.

Well, the dogs do like fresh meat for their dinner.

Do you not like kids, then? You haven’t really mentioned it.

is using airbnb something that people should be either defensive or guilty about? as an eternal singleton it’s the only real alternative to either booking a hotel or sleeping in a multi-bed dorm. hotels are problematic too anyway
