Dogs as "Children"


Hubs makes fun of me all the time for seemingly treating our dog like a child. What's interesting in the debates between treating pets anthropomorphically vs. not is that in the end, everyone really expects their pets to be like humans, even if they don't admit it. 

Pets are animals, but we expect them to hold their bladders and bowels on our schedules, do tricks based on command words, know that a shoe is not a toy...none of these things are animalistic lol.
