Just finished the article about the upcoming "Dog Day in the Park" event at the Payson Off-Leash Dog Park. Isn't it a shame that with all the good things being presented, such as pet care, licenses and vaccinations, there has to be a costume contest? There's a name for this kind of activity. It's called anthropomorphism assigning human traits to animals. I wonder what this activity says about the dog owner who participates in such a contest?
I think I'll pass on the whole event, thanks!
