Random Observation

While Bluebird's sick, she's on the couch watching television. Currently she is watching some dog show on ESPN (if dog shows can be counted worthy enough for ESPN, then cheerleading is SO totally a sport!).

But I'm watching this dog show and noticing that the judges and various involved folk are dressed up pretty nice...the guy in the ring right now is wearing a tux with tails.

So my question is: When did we start dressing nicer for dog shows than church or the opera?

Am I the only one who's a little disturbed by the casualness of a society that thinks it's OK to wear sweats and a ponytail on a daily basis, but dress in formal wear for a pet competition?

Seriously...I consider my family to be of far more importance (and therefore, more worthy of my best appearances) than dogs. I mean, the dogs on TV are very pretty and very well-behaved, but...they're dogs.

  1. I'm with you. Dress has become entirely too casual and grungy. Even at church, people dress in casual dresses! I used to work with people who wore holey t-shirts and jeans every single day. There was one guy who wore shorts every single day, year-round. One day he came in pants (because his wife made him) and I didn't recognize him!
