Do you treat your pets like your kiddos?

I have four kids and three dogs and I do! I treat them just like they were another kid in the fam.

  • I used to, but when I actually had kids, it changed, they weren't my babies anymore, my priorities became very different and I feel kind of bad but they got shoved back into the animal category. I stll love them and care for them, but now things are a little different.

  • I love my pets as I would any family member, but my pets have to understand my son comes first, Honey my beshion mix has a nasty little habbit of growling at my son if he gets to close- if she doesnt stop I be forced to re-home her, because no ammount of positive, or negitive (caging) inforcment has made any bit of diffrence.

  • Well, he still eats out of a metal bowl on the floor, poops outside, stays home unattended, and walks with a leash on, but he is pretty spoiled.

  • Yes and my SO hates it. My Chihuahua is spoiled rotten. I have to kiss him at least a million times a day. He makes me happy just like my son does. :)
