every single dog ive had in my life have all been considered family. they have personalities like a child they show affection and appreciation better than children and they're pretty smart.

Absolutely, my pet is my fourth child. She is my best friend, and I talk to her like she's a person. That dog has let me cry so many tears on her shoulders, kept me company during hubby's long deployments, and knows tons of my secrets! (Thank goodness she can't talk!)

Each and every one of our four cats is a member of my family. I adore them all; each one has her/his own personality. That's why I am taking Peaches to have her teeth cleaned for a couple of hundred dollars. She's family. Josie tells me when to feed her, when to get up and when to go to bed. My little furry alarm clock. I don't think I could function without her. Paisley adds humor and has something to say about everything -- Raa, is what she says. Arthur is practicing for male model. His sweet blue-eyed white face is soooo cute.

my dog saber - saber
Yes of course! to me, my dog is my child. I love him so much. I tell my parents all the time "thats your grandson" as i don't plan on having real kids. He gets gifts on Christmas and his birthday and special dinners on those days as well just like a human would and He even acts so human sometimes too its pretty funny. Everyone in the family considers him a part of the family.(everyone that lives in the same house as me) and they all treats my dog, Saber like a member of the family because he is one! He is 2 years old now and we've had him for a year and half I don't know what life without him would be like and everyone else feels that way too. He is always there to greet you at the door and hes always so happy and ready to give you loving! Gotta love him.
