Dogs and babies are two different species. They are not related at all. You cannot have a dog and a baby. A dog is not even capable of producing offspring through artificial means. If you want to bring up a puppy from conception, it would take around five years or longer before you could expect any result, let alone one that’s going to be healthy enough to survive outside the womb!
And if you do manage to produce something good, then what?
You’re still talking about a human being!
How can you call yourself a parent when your child will never experience life outside the womb?
A dog is just another animal. Its only purpose is to please its master. If you don’t like it, fine, but don’t keep it as a pet. Just because some people think dogs are cute doesn’t mean they deserve respect.
The first time I met my husband was in college. My roommate and I were sitting together and she told me that her boyfriend had a dog. At the time, I didn’t really pay attention to him since I was too busy trying to figure out where my future was going to lie.
But after hearing about how great of a person he is, how kind he is, how much fun he makes everyone else around him (and himself)…I couldn’t ignore the fact that he owned a dog. I had to meet him.
The first time I saw him, he was playing outside with a cute and cuddly yellow lab. When he saw me, the dog calmed down and just sat there staring at me. I knelt down next to him and started petting his head.
When I did that, he wagged his tail so hard it hit the ground behind him. I looked up at my boyfriend and he was smiling from ear to ear.
I was so happy I nearly cried.
Now, I can’t imagine my life without this dog. I know we’re not supposed to consider dogs as having human emotions and all, but he’s always been able to put a smile on my face whenever I’m feeling down or just having a bad day. He’s been with me for so long now; I can’t imagine not having him around.
He always makes me feel better. No matter what the situation, he’s always there for me.
I’ve never been greeted with as much affection as he has given me. Never have I ever experienced such joy when playing with him. He’s incredibly smart, too; it took only hours for him to learn his name, sit, lay down, and come.
Of course, that last one didn’t stick too well. Sometimes he pays no mind to it and just walks away when he feels like it. Nevertheless, he’s the greatest thing that’s ever happened to me.
With my husband and I getting along very well, we decided that it was time to move out of our parents’ place and get our own house. It was a long and difficult process, but eventually we were able to find a nice one that we could afford. It needed a few upgrades here and there, but overall it was nice.
Big yard for the dog to play in, too. Everything was going great.
My husband and I are ready for a new start. A new house. A new…life.
It’s been years since I’ve seen the dog, but from what my husband tells me, he’s doing fine. I miss him so much; my life just doesn’t feel complete without him around. It feels like a part of me is gone. But I’m sure once we get settled in our new house, it’ll feel much better.
I can’t wait.
I’ve never been a victim of a crime before. At least, not to my knowledge. My husband says that my anxiety is all in my head and there’s no reason to be worried about our security here, but I know better.
This place is a gold mine to anyone who wants to do bad things. I mean, we have more money than the average person!
Can’t just anyone walk in here and take advantage of us?
My husband is a very kind person. That’s one of the reasons why I love him so much. But his kindness has caused us to be taken advantage of on more than one occasion. I just want him to see that I’m not just having delusions. That something really could happen to us.
I’ve been looking online for alarm systems and safety devices for our home. Hopefully he’ll listen to one of my ideas for a change.
I’ve been looking around at a few of the security systems for our home. Most of them are pretty pricey though. We can’t really afford to shell out money just for our peace of mind.
Though I’m sure it’ll be worth it in the long run.
I’m so glad my husband cares about me enough to make the extra investment for my well-being. I feel so safe now that we have security in place. I just wish he’d listen to me more often.
I know what I’m talking about.
My dog suddenly just started barking like crazy. I wonder what’s gotten into him. Hopefully nothing.
I love you, Chase.
