Are your pets your family?

I have a cat and a dog, and they are so much more than pets, they are like members of my family. In fact, the dog (Jack) was a guest at my wedding! During the service and everything, the registrars loved him and everyone at the hotel adored him. The picture above is of him during the service. Are your pets like your family?

@Clairelouiser I would , but I would feel guilty taking on that responsibility when I wouldn't honestly have the time to give it the care it deserves.

I think i've said it in one of the discussions here yesterday that I never considered my pets as pets but family.

I have two cats and they are definitely family. They are our fur kids and are a huge part of our lives. They bring us lots of happiness.

The single 15 year old cat is all we have left and no doubt is family . . .

Yes they are @Clairelouiser . I have 14 cats at this time. I lost one in December and one in January. I buried them on my property. I did have 3 dogs, but they all passed last year. Jack is quite a cutie.

Pets should always be members of the family. It only makes sense. I grew up with dogs in the house. And they were always my best friends. And we had many great times playing.

@Clairelouiser We had a black mix when I was small. I think it was part Doberman and Shepard. Then we had a Beagle then a Husky. Now I have no pets but my mother has a small dog now. Havanese I think.

Yes, in fact, they (pitbulls and bulldog) eat more beef than we do. My mom even cooks beef dishes for them.

'Pets'? Um...Scar owns me, not the other way around. 'Pets' are something I am required to bestow upon Him, but only at His insistence, and then only by His standards.

Jack looks a lovely dog. This breed seems to have a wonderful temperament.
