Teddy bears and dogs

"Crazy" teddy bears are being criticized by "mental health advocates." The Vermont Teddy Bear Company says it will continue making the bears, even though the governor of Vermont has come out against the bear in the straight-jacket.
I have always loved teddy bears; they might even be better than dogs for human souls. I’m not sure that I would want one wearing a traight-jacket (their slogan is "crazy for you"), but that’s another matter. Silly stuff, no? Also note that a Florida court is questioning a police dog’s competence as a sniffing dog; it’s a probably cause issue. The dog has an imperfect record, therefore the druggy who was busted based on the dog’s sniffs should be set free. I side with the dog.

Teddy bears "might even be better than dogs for human souls?" Surely you can’t be suggesting that inanimate objects stuffed with fluff are in any way a more rewarding companion than man’s best friend?? If so, you’re not only spouting an utter absurdity, but a disturbing, somewhat inhuman one at that - borderline un-American!! What next, will you weep for "Rosebud," your childhood sled??
