My English Man attends Non-profit Networking and meets a Pet Psychic

I’m guessing most of you ladies already know this: When you bring your British man to America, his accent attracts attention from all kinds of interesting people.
I brought my lovely British husband to Non-Profit Networking night as part of our job search. Immediately, I got stuck talking to an angry lady who wanted to discuss the health care system in America. Meanwhile Mr. Charismatic was talking to someone else and I was convinced he’d found a dynamic and interesting career professional with great connections. Turns out, no – this woman is pet pyschic trying to promote her business. Pet psychic… really?
Back in Britain, I remember being asked about the perception that Americans are crazy for their pets. Me? Not so much. But a typical card shop does tend to carry gretting cards from the dog, for the dog, for the loss of a pet etc… so perhaps we are a little. What do you think?
That reminds me – in a great little place called Friday Harbor located in the San Juan Islands there is a doggy daycare that actually takes dogs on field trips using their Downtown Dog bus. It is pretty cute to see the bus driving around town with all the doggies in the windows. Click on the link to see what I mean.
