I like to share pictures of my pets as much as I share pictures of my kids with my family and friends on Facebook because I'm a proud mommy. This week, I posted the above picture of our rescue Max, who is a Chihuahua, with the caption... "My little burrito puppy watching soccer on grandma's lap." I got lots of likes ...and one nasty message from a friend who said I was racist. WHAT?
They wrote to me... "I'm surprised that since you are such an advocate for animal rights that you would be racist to Mexican dogs calling yours a burrito."
I wrapped him up like a burrito not because he is a Chihuahua, but because he was cold. No racism here. Can you even be racist towards an animal? I'm so confused.
