Dog Owners That Treat Their Dogs like Kids: Is It Crazy?

Posted by Samuel Nieves on

I know there are millions of people in the world who think dog lovers are a bunch of weirdos. They think we're ridiculous because we want our dogs to have a comfortable bed to sleep on and good health care for a long and happy life. The general public thinks we're out of our minds because we're basically looking out for their overall well-being the way one does for kids. And that's the part some don't understand.

Posted by Samuel Nieves on

We learn these things in grade school: the importance of having first aid, food, and water in case of an earthquake. We also learn to go under a sturdy surface that can protect us from falling objects and to stay away from windows. It's vital to understand these things so we minimize fatalities.
