Are you mom and dad to your dogs?

Are you mom and/or dad to your dogs? If not, what do you call yourself and why?

Hmmm...Yes, I do believe we are Mom and Dad to our dogs, not sure how that came about I think the vet's office started calling us that so it just stuck, ha!

Re: Are you mom and dad to your dogs?

Entering my answer separately so I don't "muddy" up the question.

We are NOT mom and dad to the dogs. It doesn't bother me at all if other people do, but I don't like it for me. Maybe I am just sensitive because I don't have children. A dog could never replace a child for me. Also, I see my dogs as adults of a different species. If other people refer to me as "mom" I don't correct them, because I don't want to make other people feel uncomfortable.

The dogs know DH by his first name and me by "the girl" (started by DH) because I am the only female in my house.

Have always been Mom. I even get Mom's day cards from my puppers (thanks to my SIL and my mom)

It used to irritate me to be noted as Mom to my dogs. Not sure why but that changed with Jax.

I'm like Amy - it doesn't bother me if other people do it, but we just don't. Minnie knows us by our first names.

Yep, Mom and Dad. I don't treat them like children but they are my babies.

But the jar he was making did not turn out as he had hoped, so he crushed it into a lump of clay again and started over. ~ Jer. 18:4

Re: Are you mom and dad to your dogs?

Yes we are! Cannot imagine it any other way. They are our "furry kids".

Hey, they act like our human kids, when I am on the phone Shadow squeaks his toys loudly for attention.

I have a friend with doggies...that is like NO WAY. Hee, hee.
