The Bay Area is known for being a dog-loving region, but has our canine adoration reached an unhealthy level? Dogs now accompany us into grocery stores, cafes, and even offices, but some argue that we're excessively spoiling our dogs at the expense of others. We discuss whether our region really has a dog-coddling problem.

Host: Michael Krasny

Guests:

  • Farhad Manjoo, technology columnist for Slate.com
