      I rescued my dog almost 1 year ago from a shelter.  He is the best dog I’ve ever owned.  He never complains, just does whatever is asked and is always so loveable.  I swear, I feel he is sometimes human.

        • Yes, currently my son and his male pug live here with us and our jack russell terrier. If I am crying, my jack russell gets so upset and has to get in my lap and lick my tears. If my son is feeling especially ill (he has a rare disease called adrenal insufficiency disease), neither of the dogs will leave his side. I wasn’t raised with pets and I am ashamed to say that in my younger years (late teens, very early adulthood) I didn’t have any patience for people who went on about their pets. I didn’t understand. My Mom rescued a dog from the pound and gave it to my boys when they were young and it changed me forever.

        • I just found out yesterday that my Golden Retriever needs surgery for a torn ACL in her knee. It is going to cost somewhere around 3 to 4 thousand dollars, but you know what?? She is worth every penny!! Yes, my dogs are like my kids! I love them!

        • I absolutely agree that our pets are part human, because without words they can detect the different emotions that we feel..I feel that they are great source of comfort..

        • I definitely think so!  in fact, dh and I always tell the dog and cat when they need something-“go ask daddy” or “go ask mommy”

          And I know both of them know what we‘re saying.

        • All the time! We have 3 indoor only cats who rule the house and have an attitude at times. I know that they understand what we say to them especially the word “treats!” We too think of them as our kids!

        • Absolutely. We’ve had a few dogs over the years and they’ve all acted human.

          Our pug, Winston, is the same as the rest of our kids, past and present. He has feelings and you know when you have hurt them because he pouts at you. You know when he’s not feeling well, because he just lays around sleepish and doesn’t want to be bothered; kinda like I do. He can sense our needs and is always there to meet them...sadness, loneliness, joy, etc. He reacts to our needs just as any other member of the family would, only doggie style!

          OH YES, my dog is defintely human!! estatic

        • I definitely have thought that my pooch is human.  In the mornings he comes over to my side of the bed and licks my hand to awaken me at 6:15-no need for an alarm clock.  When I was sick, he stayed with me.  At one point, I was having one of those coughing spells when you cannot stop, and he went upstairs to my sleeping husband and barked until my husband awakened. This action resulted in my husband hearing me and coming to my aid. In general, I am not a pet lover.  However, I LOVE MY POOCH!!  Yes, he is human!!!

        • Yes, my cat thinks he’s human most definitely.  While he had a companion for the first year of his life, he hasn’t been outdoors or seen other human beings beyond myself and my friends/family who have visited me, as well as the doctor’s office once. lol...

          He’s now about 3 years old as my granddaughter approaches being 2 years old.  I wouldn’t give him up for anything in the world.

        • My dogs diffently think they are human.  There is no fighting or raising your voice in our house anymore because if you do that Rockyman will go and hid and then you feel bad and you have to go love him.  He is there when you are not feeling well and both him and Angeleyes loves to be with us but they have their time also.  Angeleyes is my coffee partner along with my husband.  Rockyman understands sign language and we spoil them rotten because they are our kids.  Our kids are grown and have moved away from home.  They help keep Mike up and moving seeing he has had four back surgeries and a neck surgery.  He is at home with them every day.  It is nice when I come home and they greet me with kisses.  So are your pets human YOU HAD BETTER BELIEVE THEY ARE.
