My daughter told me of an ad she saw which encouraged dog owners to get their dogs a massage this Holiday season in order to help the dogs deal with the stress. To say that we have gone too far in treating animals like humans is to say only what is obvious. It could all be funny–conjuring up images of Marmaduke on a table in a towel.

Even more, Smith warns of how terror is growing in the animal rights movement, thereby causing important research to be left undone.
