It's because of things like this.
Behold DogTV, a brand new cable network that features programming for dogs. You heard me, a TV station for dogs. According to their website, DogTV's programming helps stimulate, entertain and relax dogs with short shows (because dogs have limited attention spans I suppose) that expose them to various movements, sounds and objects.
I guess the idea is to leave DogTV on all day while you're at work so your pet will have something to watch.
Look, I love dogs as much as the next person. Maybe more. I'd rather be with dogs than most people I know. And I don't think this is a totally ridiculous idea. In fact I think it has some actual merit. It's just that when people in other countries see us doing this kind of stuff, it makes me a little embarrassed to be an American. I wish we could keep things like this to ourselves so nobody else finds out. It's just giving our enemies more ammo.
