How ‘The Pet Revolution’ Unleashed A New Top Dog In America. “Dogs have come a long way since the days when they were put to work on farms and fed scraps. They’ve even come a long way since just a few decades ago when they spent their nights in the doghouse. Dogs now sleep inside on orthopedic beds. They get top-notch healthcare and visits to psychiatrists who prescribe them antidepressants. They see acupuncturists and psychics. They get massages and spa days. They wear sweaters.” (Look, we follow them around and pick up their business. After that, everything else they get is just gravy.)
