Pet Schadenfreude

Pet praise takes a different turn with owners mocking their furry friends

Implications - Though pet worship is as prevalent as ever, owners are exploring a new form of affection for their furry friends that is more akin to sibling rivalry: pet schadenfreude. Though mischievous, there is no malice in this form of critter love. On the contrary, mocking pets signifies forward movement in the existing pattern of personifying pets.
