I feel they have intimacy issues. Definitely troublesome.
I dont see a problem in loving your dog, or cat or money.<br />
But they must not be put before people.
My dog deserves it most people don't.
Sometimes its just a lot safer.
I love dogs too .. but some people treat them like humans and it really doesn't help the dog or them.
depends on the dog, some dogs do seam to deserve all the respect and caring
My is not misplaced... my doggies train me very well thank you.
