I don't mess with animals no matter the level of training. Humans can fly off the handle at time talk less of animals, you never know when they're going to go nuts.
I'm sorry to say this but referring to your dog/cat as a member of your family and placing it on the same level as your brothers and sisters is damn funny.
...Call PETA on me and I maintain my stance, animals are 100 levels below human beings. I'll sacrifice the life of 100 animals if it means a human being is going to live.
