    Yes Hyacinth, dogs are much easier to live with than children.

    I call Taya my 'baby' but I know that she's a dog. I do probably 'humanise' her a little more than I should - I'm not perfect.
    Like GSD I won't not do things because of her but I don't like to leave her alone for too long.
    She isn't allowed on furniture.
    She gets fed before me but that's because it's convenient for me. If I started having problems with her I know this is one thing I could change.
    She eats her own dog food, but occasionally gets a special treat if I'm eating marshmallows etc.
    Sometimes I let her sleep in my room (normally it's the lounge room)

    So yes sometimes she gets a bit spoiled but I think I've got a good balance. And as I said before, if I start having problems I know what I can change.

    Ferris wheels and Eiffel towers, so I take it adult toys aren't as popular as I thought. Or is it just so they can say mine is bigger than yours.
    My critters always slept where they liked, Chloe loved to push the boundaries and see who she could push off the bed. Amos was happy on the spare bed or his beanbag. Chloe always wanted to be more than a pet. They ate their own food and whatever vegies we were having. They loved going to the beach but were always ready to come home cos we always stopped at the icecream shop, Amos and Chloe would get a baby vanilla cone while O.H and I had ours. All of us sitting on the tailgate of the 4 wd.
    The cats sleep where ever they like, always know it's cold if there's more than 1 on the bed. They eat dry cat food and fish or heart a couple of times a week. Alpha will only eat cat food.

    I spent so long deciding if I should post this or not
    But they truth is often the best .......


    I used to be one ofthose people who joked about the type of people that 'ooggyy woogy' their dogs,that dressed themin little pretty suits etc etc

    This is so going to sound like I only really love Lop but I love them all.honest!
    *takes big breath*

    I dont treat Lop like a dog 80 percent of the time
    Its like she really isn't a dog! Sometimes the wiseness and understanding that shines from her eyes is amazing.She has moods,she sulks,she can give the bestest dirty look I've ever seen She can also look at me in a way that makes almot cry for feeling guilty,if I have to out and leave her for example.
    Its not just me either ,we all seem to not see Lop as a 'dog'.Hubby is forever standing watching us,me laying down reading,Loppy stretched beside with her head in the crook of my shoulder and then leans over and kisses us both beforewandering away saying "your not a dog,you really arnt a dog Lop"
    She doesnt get up till I get up and yes she sleeps with me.She will come downstairs numerous times once it starts getiing late and 'tells' me its time for bed as she wont go fully until I do.

    But have no fear,she always is reprimanded just like a dog,just like the otherdogs.



    I just cant seem to explain what we have,what we share together.

    Oh god......I even promise to bring her something home and feel absolutely terrible if I forget.

    OK....I am going to stop writing now.
    (and she is the only one treated this way)


    ok,1 2 3 posting......can always edit if need be

    My dog is a dog. I love her. I don't think you have to treat everyone you love as a little person - a dog will never be a little person, no matter how much you may treat it as one.

    Chop, your post immediately brought Blacky to mind (RIP) A dog who chose to be outside but one so intuitive to every mood, a dog you could put your arms around and cry into. I do not think that the OP's intention was about our emotional relationships we can have with them but their treatment and acknowledging that they are indeed dogs, not humans in dog's form.

    (OT, did another PM, did you get this one? Done last night)

    I wonder how many dogs treat their humans like another dog?

    Frosty pretended to be a cat this morning - you know that thing where they rub and curl around your legs? That. And she's nearly got the Meow down.

    And then she tried to round up the lawnmower. The one that gets towed behind a tractor on the cricket pitch -
