Where the Pets Go

So, we all knew that there was an online dating site for everyone under the sun, with every conceivable interest. Now, pet lovers can find lovers who love pets and love to pet the pets and their pet-lovers: Pet-love sites are the latest of the breed. AnimalAttraction--"the meeting place for pet owners"--says it is reaching out to the estimated 40 million people in the United States who walk their dogs or curl up with their cats alone. Meanwhile, at SingleDogOwners.com, a site with about 400 subscribers, Bruno the Chihuahua greets singles with the site's motto: "Date me, date my dog." Not to be confused with "Date me, even though I'm a dog." Just sayin'. Hat tip: Chicago Tribune

Ha! Great idea unless you get matched with someone who loves his dog more than you. Case in point: the last man I dated slept in the bed with his dog... not that there's anything wrong with that except that he *insisted* the dog remain in bed while we were having intimate relations! There's "Fido" Time and there's "Vendela" Time and never the twain should meet. Feh, feh, feh!!!!!

So what if the people like each other, but the pets don't?

I actually get e-mails from a similar site located here in NYC called 'Leashes and Lovers'. Ha! Apparently, you bring your dog to all of the social events.

Yesterday I read about the new trend of "bark mitzvahs". No, really. Apparently there are companies that will help with the planning.

Date my dog, but only if you're into bitches.
