Julius Caesar (100-44 B.C.) reportedly had to remind the citizens of Rome to pay more attention to their children and less to their dogs, because the devotion to dogs was so intense!

What a wild rebuke.  I wonder if ancient Rome had the need for the Sarah Mclachlan of her time to be singing out in front of the Colosseum asking for donations to help poor Italian street dogs?  Apparently not if we go with Caesars’ opinion.

Just thought this was a bit strange and humorous all at once.  Have an excellent day today and try your best to take care of both your children and your dogs!
