Actually I think more like you do about it but most people are not like me.

I understand the anthropomorphization [thank you again] of animals completely, but I also agree with Dennis Prager that "Love of animals has little to do with, and can often substitute for, love of people." We often see clear-cut examples of this.

When I nursed that dog back to health, it wasn't the thousands I spent on the dog that mattered to me; it was the attention and care I spent that, retrospectively, would have been better spent on a child somewhere.

In the end, nothing helped and I had to re-home her.
