I've seen ppl dress their dogs in nice comfy, sweaters (it looks especially funny with wennier dogs). I am pretty sure the majority of loving dog and cat owners anthropolize their pets coz those animals have the most human like qualities.

Regardless of your pet, I think you should treat it with respect and dignity. All life should be respected if it's under your supposedly respectful relationship.

perhaps it is especially true for people who do not have kids and the pet becomes a surrogate child

respect and treating a pet well is one thing, but i started this thread thinking about people who totally spoil their pet

and would treat their animal better than most human beings

My god parents have a jack russell, my god mum talks to her dog like it's a human and lets the dog get away with pretty much anything. The worse part is when the stupid little thing is sitting on the sofa and she asks you to sit somewhere else because that's "jessies" seat.

i live/work on a deer farm and once i had to sleep for a couple nights with one because it was really sick and i had to make sure it got a shot and water every hour.

it was cold so it cuddled me

other than that my three year old sister is absolutly nuts, she has a stuffed animal raughtweiler (i know horrible spelling) and she gets my mom to go to pet stores to buy her special toys for it and collars and a kennel, she talks to it non-stop too. but she is a little kid.

the funny part is the stuff my mom buys for her little animal is what my sister wants more than anything for christmas/birthday or whatever

My mum is like that, though she really only dresses and sleeps with the dog to keep it warm, dresses it in a dog jacket of sorts. She does talk to it a little too much and when she is cooking she has a "game" where the dog gets fed.

I figure she has had me or my sister for 23 years and now she has basically replaced us.

That's because their pet is like a child to them as you mentioned. Their pet fills in the empty void which would otherwise be a loved-one or a child.

As such, like a child, that pet is prone to excessive attention and care from the owner. I don't there is anything wrong with threatening a pet better than most humans, btw. That's as long as that person doesn't threat most ppl like how most ppl threat an unwanted pet
