Okay on facebook I friended a girl I used to know in high school. And at first her post was normal and everything but then everything changed. I guess she got tired that everyone she knew including myself and dh have a child to talk about and she didnt so she went out and got a dog. Which is great and everything. But now she post like ten post a day talking about her dog. I don't even do that! I am lucky if I log on once a day and I rarly post anything. But that is not the thing that bothers me. Its the way that she refers to her dog as her baby and herself as mommy. The way she talks you wouldnt know that she is actually talking about her dog and not a real baby. It is irritating. I just want to scream at the top of my lungs It is a DOG not a BABY!!!!

I am not a fan of people referring to their pets as their children.  Sometimes people refer to me as one of my pets' "mom" - my reply is always, "no, I did not give birth to him/her".

i love our pets....but they are pets, not children.

I love dogs. My dogs were my babies. I lost my Dane to cancer, and it broke my heart. I can't wait to get another one;(

It's not illegal. It depends on the store. And she's right. Just because it isn't human, doesn't mean it's not her baby.

Quoting MissTacoBell:

Lol. Like those ppl who carry those micro mini dogs around like babies. I actually heard a chick try and argue with the mgr at Safeway that "just because it's not human doesn't mean it's not my baby" to try and justify walking around the store with it. It's friggin unhygienic...and illegal:

Some people are just weirdos. My aunt takes her dog to a doggie spa to get massages.

I'm a mommy and a doggy mommy. We got the dog as a present for DD's 3rd birthday but since then he has been attached at my ankles practically (ChiPom). He is a sweet and loyal dog who didn't budge the entire time I was on bedrest prior to my miscarriage and even after he stuck to me like glue.
