Doga: Dog Yoga — Indulgent, Self-Deluded Owners Waste Money on Latest Stupid Fad
April 2, 2008
There is nothing beyond the capacity of some loving dog owners to convince themselves is the Next Great Thing to do with your dog. Even in a recession there are still many Americans with too much time and money on their hands and product pimps only too happy to relieve them of some it.
You can read about it in the credulous article Bring Your Mat, and Man’s Best Friend: Yoga for Dogs is Becoming Increasingly Popular Around the World on the ABC News Nightline site, here.
If you’ve simply got to burn off your disposable cash why not piss it away on a stylish velour Yoga sweat suit with these amazing claims: “it stretches” and “it keeps them warm,” says Susan Bing of Trixie and Peanut in NYC.
You can also buy chew toys “inspired by Indian art and philosophy” like squeaky Mendhi balls decorated with lotuses and leaves; Shanti sticks inscribed with the mantra of Peace; an Om Ball with a recording of the mantra OM by a yogi whose name you’ll never read again, Bhagavan Das; or a hand-embroidered suede lounge cushion that you can tell people is actually a Lotus Bed. These are based on the classic yogic principles of Om. Bliss. Play! and can be found at Bohdi Toys.
The other option, of course, is just to pile your money in a corner of your yard and set it on fire.
