Johntiki, like I said it was food for thought. To compare a positive idea that could possibly help people be better prepared for parenthood to Hitler? You must be a complete loon! Geez, you should really watch what you say, for all you know (or in your case don't know) I could be Jewish, married to a Jew or have Jewish relatives.

I wonder if Roy Horn's tiger comes to visit him in the hospital.

Suzywong, I'm 35,, thought about it alot, trust me... and I think if I read yer post correctly, yer thinkin kids would be better than pets, but maybe if I KNOW I would NOT be a good parent, then, I should NOT have kids. Unless You'd like, I procreate and be a Horrible parent, would you like to adopt my child when it is taken away from me??? HOPE SO!~
Atomicchick rocks my world.


about eating the pets, if I was in the Phillipines and offered dog, yes, I would try it. Cause it's not MINE.

I do not think folks should NOT have kids. not at all. Have a gazillion, so they can grow up and work and pay social security so it will add to my retirement fund! actually, I'm a freakin GODMOTHER to 5 kids. If by the worst luck in the world I loose my 2 best friends in the whole world, and I end up with them, I will be the
BEST substitute parent in the WORLD.

Well, can I show you my pet dog? It appears that this topic is getting a little overheated.
So I myself have no kids. Didnt really want any.
I have a Welch Corgi. Her name is Midge. This is her in my sister's convertable. Shes got a wonderful personality and acts human sometimes. Alot of the local people know of her being the $5,000. dog. Thats how much it cost for surgery so she can still be with us. Car got in her way.
Midge seems to know this stardom, hence the shades she's wearing.

I'd like to thank the childless members for not using the term "breeder" in a derisive manner thus far.

Since we're pulling out the cute ticket, here's one I took of a friend's pup.

On a polynesian related side note....



This "Hula Ankle Rattle" at the Bishop Museum on Oahu was worn in pairs by male dancers, dog tooth anklets produced sharp, rattling sounds. An average pair might contain the canines of up to 500 dogs.

I love children and TC parents are the best.
But this is why I can't reproduce (as cute as they are).
Meet my "second cousins".

We only use that term for parents who are truly worthy of it.

Sorry if I might have come off as a jerk in my last post.
I just don't think there is a difference in the love you give/get from a child or a pet. whatever makes you happy, and the other being happy and well cared for.

And Miss Cyn is right, I don't use the term "breeder" unless called for.


Everyone's critters are soooooo dang sweet. I still havent gotten a new one yet. just waiting for the right one to find me.

sweetpea --

there is a HUGE difference in the love one feels for a pet and the love one feels for a child. It is, quite simply, off the charts.

That being said, I've felt more strongly toward some animals than I have for people -- family included. But the love for my own children? Compared to my cat and dog? Not even in the same universe. When my dog or cat dies, I will cry sincere tears. If one of kids die, I will kill myself.

And as for the love an animal feels for you -- well, are we talking about cats or dogs?

seriously, once you have children, you are constantly in a state of horor, hoping no harm shall come to your kids, and it never goes away. Is this the same for pets? I dont have any pets.

When I said a licence to reproduce that is what I meant. I did not say that the government choose who can have kids and who can not. People drive without licences all the time and what happens? They are not banned from driving, they just get a fine and are sent on their way. Like I said before, (I guess a few of you were not paying attention), recommending someone to take a class to become a better parent, how is that a bad thing? Oh wait, stop right there, don't even answer, because then we will get into, "My rights as an American are..."
