My Dog Is Like My Child: Why Does That Bother You?

Is this not the cutest baby you've ever seen?

When people say their dog or cat is their baby, I totally get it. I have 3 kids of my own but also 5 furry children (not counting the many others with fins and shells). I admit the non-furry pets are fun but I don’t have that special connection with them like I do with my dogs.

I have many childless couple friends who treat their dogs like their children. Hearing them speak about the adoption, potty training, toy selection and choice of food is quite similar to what I talk about on the playground with moms and dads.  I think it’s great but I also have quite a few friends who turn up their noses at this and say things like, “It’s just a dog. They act like it’s a child.”
