I hear people say it all the time when the subject of children comes up: “Oh, I totally get it. Our dog is just like a kid… It’s so much responsibility, you know?”Actually, no I don’t know. Your dog is nothing like a kid. First of all, I completely understand why some people decide not to have kids. It's incredibly hard to make it work with our already complicated lives. Not to mention that watching parenting in action doesn't really sell its benefits. Parents get covered in poop, can never really hang out, are constantly worried about their kids doing something dangerous, and it's hard for them to talk about anything else but their little bundle of joy – which must be so annoying to non-parents. Also, I know there are many who would love to have kids, but haven't for some reason (or can't) and they turn to their pets to fill a very special place in their hearts. I empathize and understand how your dog can feel like they're your kids. That said, I’ve owned a few dogs and I know there’s some responsibility and certainly a ton of love there, but it’s time to wake up and realize that canine ownership in no way compares to the onslaught of responsibility that comes with raising a child.
