I'm sorry, I don't want to hurt or offend anyone. Actually, I use to kind of be this way too BEFORE I had kids. Some people take it more extremely than others, I even saw an episode of WifeSwap with a dumbass lady who admitted that her pets come before her husband and daughter. My aunt, when she comes over, hardly pays any mind to her great neices but gets that baby voice going with the dog and is all up his ass instead; she doesn't have kids but like 8 indoor cats instead and is single. I just don't understand how anyone who has children can still be stuck in the "my dog is family too" mindframe. Are these the same people that defend "domesticated" pythons when they strangle the life out of a toddler or a dog that suddenly rips the throat out of a child?

Our dog is considered a family member, but she's definately at the bottom of the totem pole...Meaning, our DD's needs come first. And both DH and I agreed when our DD was born that if our dog ever hurt her, the dog would have to go. Fortunately, our dog adores our DD and they are best friends. Phew!

I have 4 cats.. they are ALL treated like children, I do not put them over my family bc THEY are part of that family. They are discipline more so than my 8 yr old...lol... but they are also WELL behaved..
I have seen (my sis and sil both) put their dogs above all and when you know that the poor animal should be put down due to extreme age and poor health, they tell you how much they just spent at the vets for more meds for them...
As for the "Animals aren't Human" ?--- to each their own thinking on that... physically they are not, but as I stated I treat my furbabies like children....
