(quote)
But the multispecies family is also rooted in the same historical processes as other nontraditional families. ..... opening our lives to the possibility of self-happiness. Child-free families, single-parent families, declining marriage rates,.....

This state has also begot fully blended families where both human and furry non-human inhabitants equally enjoy the spoils of modern life. For child-free families a category that has grown dramatically in the past 50 years the question of whether a child might make them happy has been asked and answered. Dogs and cats paw in to fill a longing to nurture.

Can I claim the dog as a dependent on my taxes? Can I make him get an actual paying job?

Nope. He's going to have to live with being the dog.

Now that I think about it in family terms, the cows provide a heck of lot more to this family than the dog.

"Can I claim the dog as a dependent on my taxes?" I can see this coming, yes.

"Can I make him get an actual paying job?" That would be speicism, so probably no.

I interviewed a gal that had a pet monkey. During the interview she showed us photos of the monkey and talked about it like it was her child. The pictures were like portraits and I recall the monkey being dressed in clothes.

It was weird. And, a hard pass.

Lots of people have pets that are part of their family.
Most hotels are now "pet friendly" since people drag their pets around along with their kids when travelling.
You cant smoke in a hotel room anymore but its ok for your dog to shat on the carpet.


Forget that fear of gravity-get a little savagery in your life.

I dunno. Having the monkey lady around the office might prove entertaining.

What hotel has a policy that says it's okay for dogs to take a dump on the carpet? I've stayed in pet friendly hotels lots of times, but none of them told me it was okay for my dog to deuce on the floor.

$25 extra for the worst rooms out in the Hills if you bring a pet.

this whole animals are people too nonsense is one of the big reasons the fur market is so awful

I am more than a little surprised that so many trappers are buying into it

My brother is a long-line trapper in the Glennallen area who treats his dogs like children. Don't ask me to explain it, but he and his wife don't have any actual human children.

Put me in that category as well. A dog has never been an arsehole to me.


I know I'm paranoid......but am I paranoid ENOUGH???
