I don’t have any kids yet, I’m 24 but my dog is honestly like my baby. She cries for me, she likes being cuddly and loving, and she’s super playful as a child would be, the only thing is she can’t talk. I definitely want children of my own someday I just unfortunately haven’t found the right guy sadly😞, but I do see her as my baby and me as her mother and it’s the greatest feeling ever because I rescued her and we’ve been inseparable ever since🥺💖

On October 15 2022, I had to Euthanize, my male companion feline, that I 'adopted' from my veterinarian''s wife, who operated a rescue center. We adopted him at 8 weeks old in June of 2004, and he was born in April of that year.
We fed 'Oliver" with a child's doll, baby bottle, for several weeks and we kept him for 18 years, and 6 months, treating him for Kidney failure, Pancreatitis, High blood pressure when it was discovered soon after he turned 18. I took him for 'hydration' every week, gave him medication every morning and night.
"When his abdomen began to fill with fluid, and he had a problem walking and getting on the couch, one week, I knew something terrible had happened and my wonderful vet confirmed it, and we found he had liver cancer.
I cried for more that a week off an on and have the ashes of 'my son' on the mantle along with his pictures from the time he was 6 weeks old up until his death. '
Yes, he was like my child.
