Point to prove

While reviewing my photos of our family vacation I was reminded of something.  In California we saw several billboards that had photos of people with their cats and dogs and said things like "my babies are people too."  Forgive me, but I wanted to throw up.  Right then and there.  I think pets are great and animals are wonderful.  Let's just set the record straight though, ok?  THEY ARE NOT THE SAME AS CHILDREN.  ok.  whew.  I feel much better.  I mean really, I can't exactly fill a bowl with water and leave them in the laundry room with the door shut while I run my errands, can I?  And they are amazing and smart and adorable and completely different from animals with their brave spirits and their hearts.  These photos prove my point.  Amen.  the end.

I hope we all can still be friends,


  1. Believe it or not, I was just saying the EXACT same thing in almost the exact same language to Stanton just yesterday.

  2. I agree!!! Pets are a wonderful addition to our lives but they are NOT and never will be children!!!

  3. DITTO! When I am asked if I have pets, I tell them, "Yes, 5." I guess you could say my kids are European Mutts - we have so many different ancestors from all over!
