Recently, you may have come across plenty of discussions with the older generation taking offense to the newer generation opting for a pet rather than an actual child. You might’ve also seen new couples taking their due time when it comes to planning children but they don’t wait long to get themselves a pet. So, what is the big deal about pets, particularly dogs, which makes a lot of people opt for them over babies? Well, dogs are almost like children but they don’t require that kind of financial and emotional support that a human baby would, which is why people just get dogs.
If you don’t believe it then check out these signs that your dog is like a child of your own.
1. You Set Aside A Budget For Them
Just like you would for your children, your furbaby also requires a budget to be set, would includes pet food, vet visits, vaccinations, toys for your pup, and a bed or a cage. Many might assume that dogs are easy to handle and easy-going on your savings but thanks to the mischievous nature of dogs, sooner or later, you will find yourself rushing to the vet in an emergency.
2. You Love Showing Off Their Photos
It doesn’t matter if your baby walks on four legs or two, it is still your baby, which means that your phone will probably be filled with hubdreds of pictures of them from the time when your dog was a little puppy to recent photos of it sleeping in a funny position. Like other parents, you probably enjoy sharing photos of them with your friends, neighbors, and family too.
3. They Are Your Family
After a long day at work, you come back home and are greeted by your dog who is super excited to see you. Your dog is with you when no one else is; from when you are dancing alone in your living room to when you just want a furry best friend to cuddle with. Similarly, just like your dog sees you like family, you do too, and you wouldn’t think twice before doing whatever you can for them.
Your pets might not know how to talk and you might not always understand them completely but you two speak a unique language of love!
