And the reason I bring it up is that the other night I got a call from an old lady boss I worked for back in 97' and 98' .
It was an Inside Sales job selling Yellow Page Advertising , and she was the manager and I was a Sales person under her tutelage.
Anyway, she had this HUGE affinity for her poodle. She literally treated him like a young child.
I mean carrying him everywhere and buying him $1,000 birthday presents and Christmas presents.
We used to eat together at Lunch during work break.
We got into some playful debates. And in particular about her beloved Snuggles.
She said that there were only a handful of human beings that she would choose over Snuggle's Life.
( and NO I wasn't one of lucky ones chosen lol)
I said " Deb if a 4 year old child was caught on a Rail Road track crying his eyes out with an approaching Train and Snuggles was 10 feet away stuck as well, who would you pick to try to save.
Of course, Deb in her cocky manner said without hesitation she would choose " her Snuggles" no matter what .
She said that this was her child and that is the way she felt. ( She never married or had real children)
Oh well to each his own.
I always thought it as bizarre and would give her a good fun ribbing about it when I got a chance
Anyway, her phone call the night before last reminded me of this, and I was wondering how some of of you thought about it ?
