Why dogs are possibly better than kids?
- They don't talk back
- They can be potty trained early on (and it only takes a few weeks)
- You can leave them in a kennel when you go out for a nice, quiet dinner (no babysitter! and no CPS after you!)
- No dirty diapers (unless you have one in heat)
- You can vacation whenever you want (with or without them)
- They are cheaper (no college tuition)
- They are always happy to see you when you get home (wagging tails everywhere)
- They don't throw temper tantrums
- You can give them a bone and it makes their day
- They won't repeat everything they hear or see (this gets dangerous in the bedroom)
Penny saved me. She is my baby. She gives me someone to care for. She gives me unconditional love. I know she's only a dog, but to me, she's everything. I know that it's silly to compare her to caring for a child, but when she's sick, I am up at night cleaning up after her. I make sure her shots are up to date, that she has play dates and is socialized well. I try to teach her good manners and acceptable behavior. I make sure to feed her well, keep her clean, exercise her to her heart's content and I spoil her rotten. She is my kid.

I don't expect everyone to know or even understand how much I love Penny. Some people are not "dog people". But I hope that even though I am not a "mother", people can respect that I feel like a mother. I am Penny's mother (and if not, humor me please). I know she's only a dog, but she is all I have right now and she might be all I ever have.
