Why is it that people who are enamored with their dogs think that all the rest of us want to be licked, jumped, shed, slobbered, and scratched on by their precious pets?

It seems that increasingly people are imposing their pets on us in every venue of public life. They bring them uninvited to outdoor restaurants, open food markets, children’s playgrounds, and beaches.

I have recently attended several private parties and even a wedding reception where guests brought along their uninvited dogs and then acted like everyone should be tickled to death to have them join the festivities.

It reminds me of the nuisance smokers used to be when they would light up anytime, anywhere, without asking whether their behavior was offensive to anyone else in the crowd.

When I go to a party, I go to be with the people, not dirty, smelly animals. There should be some sort of protocol that should be suggested to these inconsiderate pet people.
