I can't help but get slightly annoyed when people refer to their pets as children. I don't get it. At all. Are you putting your dog/cat/whatever pet in the same category as your child? My fur baby this, member of the family that... Blah Blah. If you could ONLY save one during a fire, baby upstairs, pet next to the front door, who would you save? Think about this people who act like your pet is just a member of the family like the rest

I call them my fur babies. My pets are members of the family. But I'm very well aware they're our pets. The humans come first.

If my pet is next to the door, he'd follow me as I carried the baby out. Duh.

my chihuahua is so small I could hold her while saving a baby....but if she's right by the front door she'd bolt out anyway.

I understand.And agree. I have just heard people saying people and animals are the same. I don't get that.

I think animals are cute but smelly and dirty. And my hubs is allergic to cats. So yeah. I don't know either.

 I feel like I've seen this post a lot lately...

I don't know about calling my pets my children.. but I've had a couple of dogs that were as dear to me as any of my immediate family. 

                         


There is no way to be a perfect mother, and a million ways to be a good one.

Why are  YOU annoyed how SOMEONE ELSE refer to their pets??

is it hurting you?

is it affecting you?

and yes i refer to  my pets as my babies.   they are the brothers and sisters of my son.
