Three Kids and a Dog

Did You Know that Dogs are the New Kids?

Okay, so I'm back at work and I'm in a meeting today and I notice my colleague next to me has a Starbucks cup of coffee. I notice that it has some verbiage written on the side of the cup called "The Way I See It #238" with some info that's supposed to be thought provoking. I guess Starbucks has a different thought printed on cups to provoke discussion. Well, here's the one I noticed today which clearly talks about why Adler gets more attention than Austen!

"Have you noticed that dogs are the new kids? You take a walk with your kid and your dog, but nobody says, "What a cute kid?" Instead they say, "What a cute dog! What's his name? Is he a rescue?" Maybe if I put a collar and a leash on my kid someone will notice her.

The author is humorist, Judy Gruen. She has a point. But I don't think I'll be putting a leash and a collar on Austen anytime soon. I'll just have to make sure his outfits are cute enough for people to notice him too!


  • Dear Adler's Mom,

    Thank you for commenting on my Starbucks cup quote, and I'm glad that, as a fellow (sister?) dog lover you took no offense. My dog, Ken, gets plenty of attention from passersby, even when not wearing his dapper mackintosh (which is only appropriate for the rain, anyway.)

  • How cool is that! The author of the quote actually responded to your post. God I love blogging. Keep up the great work. You'll have enough for a book soon.

  • I know! How exciting is that that Judy responded! I wonder how she found me.
