Does it bother you when people talk about their pets as though they were children?

What do you mean? I think pets are like children!
I don't care one way or the other.
I do it myself all the time, so I can't talk.
It drives me batty.
I think it's cute.

No. Overindulging trumps negligence or, God forbid, abuse.

On the contrary, I speak to, regard and treat my dog just like I do with my daughter.

Nope. Guilty of it myself. Mine ARE my children. Why should anyone pass judgment on that?

Oh yes, my youngest son is a lab named Stonie.

No one I know talks like that, they love their pets but it's not an obsession with them.
