|I don't think the label matters. We have decided that unless we get a windfall soon, we are not having children at all, and our chis are definitely surrogates. That doesn't mean we don't treat them like dogs, it is just a label. The in laws call them grand dogs. We don't take exception to that.
we dress our dogs and knit for them, and make sure they have the best diet for their species that we can afford. If we had real children,each would have individual needs and personalities that would need to be addressed, and dogs are the same way. Not addressing the fact that despite being "children" they are dogs with canine needs would be bad parenting. Sothis whole argument about it not being ok to call a dog owner a dog momma or a dog daddy is pretty silly to me. Just let it be.
