Yesterday I had a little argument with a colleague at work who claimed its the same thing to have a dog or a child. When I heard I gazed at him and I asked him some simple questions.
How many times have you walked your dog in your arms as having colic?
How many sleepless nights he had when the dog was sick?
How many times a night his awaken to check on dog?
and many other questions like these.
I understand that a dog has a soul as a kid but a child’s growth demands more affection and devotion than a dog. I say that you have more spiritual satisfaction from a child than a dog.
He who does not raised a child cannot make such comparisons. But if you mean that a dog is a responsibility like a child , then yes it’s true. You have to wash them , prepare their food or to go to the doctor, yes these are some of the chore that needs to be made for both and just for this reasons they are the same.
I had a dog and to me a dog is a living thing that you care in exchange for his affection and devotion. Don’t get me wrong I loved my dog but I don’t had to do as many for him as I do for my child.
For me the love for my child is bigger than any love in the world.
