    Lovely piece of writing, and cute kids…er, I mean dogs, lol! I imagine if you don’t have kids, pets fulfil the same need.

  2. I never understood completely – the relationship between humans and pets until I became a pet parent. I get this story and I relate to it all. It’s not about replacement of children or human contact, it’s about enrichment of our lives. Nice story!

  3. Thanks, Groovy Goldendoodles!

    Lovely piece and very well written. Being a pet parent myself I agree; I didn’t understand it myself until I adopted my last dog Laika. We don’t go to the dog park so I can’t get out all of my dog talk in that way so I started a dog blog and I love this community for that reason (and I’m sure my coworkers do as well.) I always feel a bit awkward when the “how did you get your pet” question comes up – I’ve gotten mine through rescues, and although I don’t like to make anyone feel bad about their choices it’s just seems like adopting is the right thing to do.

  6. Thanks for sharing, Jen.

    Hi Y’all!

    Oh, my Human doesn’t understand most of her family who won’t visit because I live in the house. They believe furry four footed critters should live outdoors! Can you imagine? It’s only on the blogs that my Humans can realize that there really are others in the world that think we dogs (and kitties too) belong indoors with them. It’s what we do, we take care of you! (you only think you take care of us).

    Y’all come by now,

    Scoots and Scout are adorable! Scoots reminds me of my Max. Yes, they are just like having kids, but they don’t talk back.

    What a great community of Pet Parents we all are here and it’s so nice to see! Thank you everyone for the kind and wonderful comments. Jen Jelly, Hawk, Talent Hounds, and Rascal and Rocco (love their names!), much appreciated. 😉

    Love it! I’m a dog mom and proud of it! And my husband is proud to be the Dog Daddy at our house. Even the human son refers to our dogs as his furry siblings. And all are rescues. It all adds to the richness of our lives.

  13. Thanks for sharing, Sue.

    Mom always says pet parent groups are just like mini human parent groups, just the “little ones” are different.

  15. Thanks for joining the hop. We get together with our training pals and talk about how many handles our dog had on a blind and the best way to set up a triple….lol. Guess its like little league parents. I would like to point out though that not all dogs that are purchased came from a pet store. 🙂
