Question Are you a Mommy or Daddy to your dog?

I was curious to see how many of us call ourselves mommy and daddy to our dogs, whether or not you have human kids as well. Dennis and I have no human children but we always call ourselves mommy and daddy to our dogs. Do you do it in public or in front of your anti-dog family members?

I am mommy to all 4 of my animals, I tell everyone that whether they are friends, family or strangers.

I have no human children and I dont plan on having any.

We don't have human babies just fur kids. Anyone that knows me knows they are my babies anyone that doesn't probably thinks Im off my rocker when they hear me talk to the dogs. I really don't care what non dog lovers think. My husband is usually home first so if the dogs are in the house he will tell them "Mommy's home" I do the same if I'm home when he comes home "Daddy's home".
Funny thing is if we are both in the house and he will say "Mommy's home" they give you the cockeyed look like "what" and go or look to the door and thats when I say "I'm mommy here I am"!

Nope, I'm not a mom to Gracie. I'm just a really good friend.

No human children.

I do call myself "mommy" others in my family refer to me as such as well when dealing with the dogs or cats.

I know, people think it's silly, but I don't care.

Are you a mommy or daddy

I have 2 adult children, but I am still mommy to Judah...and I love it. My daughter says I spoil him more than I did she or her brother. It's a balance because I am good on discipline too. I want Judah to be loved by all and he has very good manners that help.

I don't call myself mommy but others do... My parents call our dogs and their dogs the grandkids... I told my dad that technically their dogs should be their kids, no? My dad's response... "like grandkids better"

not only do we refer to ourselves as mommy
and daddy but when we're talking about or to my kids (28 yrs old
and 30 yrs old) we refer to the dog as their brother.
my kids think that's funny.
