My child the dog

My child the dog

One thing Melanie and I both agree on is that people who refer to their pets as their “children” (especially those without children of their own) creep us out. Apparently it also creeps out Genevieve Kineke and Cathy Seipp. The latter relates an encounter in a dog park with a woman and her “boys.”

What does it say about our society that children and animals are put on the same moral level and that there is as much compunction about killing unborn children as there is to euthanizing an aged dog.
