Interestingly Enough, the Wall Street Journal has confirmed that we are not crazy. (Sort of).

When you think of The Wall Street Journal, what comes to mind? Serious reporting, money, wall street, bankers, tiny print?  Well we used to think that too…until we saw an article in WSJ online, talking about the fact that baby boomers fill the gap left by children going to college with a dog and dog related activities.   According to the WSJ, this segment of Pet Peeps shuttle their dogs to organized activities much the same as they did for their children.  The activities include dock diving, agility, lure coursing and canine freestyle a.k.a. dancing with dogs.

The average age of this group is over 45.  The article stated: “Dog Sport Magazine says 92% of its readers are between the ages of 45 and 54, and many of them are women. Among dog-owning households, parents over the age of 45 are by far the largest group, at 24% of the total, according to the American Veterinary Medical Association, which polled 80,000 families in 2007.”

Now, Joe and I felt that there were other people out there, just like us…and if the WSJ says it’s true than it must be true, right?  There are other people just like us and we are not crazy!
