I don't get it... dogs are cool and all but i'm not particularly obsessed with them.
I have a lot of friends and they'll update their facebook status and be talking about what their dog wants to eat or do that day. How their dog felt and how it felt about particular people.
I also see people making their dogs personality about what they like or want to do.

Yeah I find that funny as well. We have a tendency to humanise, not just dogs but other pets, animals and in extreme cases objects (like the door and cheese sandwich that has the image of Jesus.) I read somewhere about how evolution has trained our mind to read facial expression as a way of survival. Being able to read a human face, and it's expression helps you to discern friends from enemies, possibility of a fornication versus a physical Attack. And we tend to use this outside of humans as well.
I account this lack to lack of imagination, and a close minded mind that can't fathom the working of brains different from that of humans.1

I don't know but I've seen dogs in strollers and kids on leashes
I like dogs too but damn
I'm not even down for the whole "kissing" dogs on the lips thing either
Some people just really love their dogs/pets0
