Pets, Pet Owners, and Luxury Dog Food. It's Just another day in My Blue World*
So much to hate here!
1. Idiot extras in the background of a park setting, playing catch while standing MAYBE five feet apart. Yeah, that's realistic.
2. Dumbest Name for a Product Ever. "Blue Buffalo?" What the hell does that even mean? The food isn't blue. It isn't made from buffalo (is it?) I mean, WTF?
3. Most disgustingly cloying, stupid, self-satisfied pet-obsessed weirdos on the planet, blathering on and on about how their lives found meaning the moment they found the bestest ever food and the ONLY food good enough for their little pumpkin treasure honeys. No more standard dog food which is just fine for 99.99 percent of the lesser pets out there for MY pwecious wittle shmuggums mommy loves you so much yes she DOES!
4. The real food that goes into making this Buy This So Everyone Can See Your Dog Is Better Than Theirs And You Have More Money Than They Do crap- chicken. fruit. Corn? That's for lesser animals, like people! My doggie needs meat and fruit! Corn? CORN? What do you think he is, a human living in a third-world country? My dog has greater needs than THAT!
And most loathsome of all- the woman who tells us that her dog isn't a pet, he's "her other boy- a member of the family"- while her son is standing right there. Truly, the only thing in this universe more repulsive than someone who abuses animals is someone who puts their pets on the same level of importance as their kids. This woman's son must feel uber-special right now. He should consider himself lucky there was never a serious house fire when he was a small child and this dog was a puppy- after all, his Mom would have had to make an important decision on who to save, right?
