    In many ways, dogs and cats are better than kids because they:

    1. Eat less

    2. Don't ask for money all the time

    3. Are easier to train

    4. Normally come when called

    5. Never ask to drive the car

    6. Don't hang out with drug-using friends

    7. Don't smoke or drink

    8. Don't have to buy the latest fashions

    9. Don't want to wear your clothes

    10. Don't need a "gazillion" dollars for college.

    And finally,

    11. If they get pregnant, you can sell their children.

    While I've taken pride in the accomplishments of some of my pets, it's nothing compared to watching your child excel at something they enjoy, be it sports, music, or school work.

    I've also taken my dogs hunting, and it's a lot of fun, but it doesn't compare to seeing your son shoot his first deer.

    I'll take kids over pets any day.

    I, too, enjoy the benefits of having kids. Although sometimes I wanted to ring their necks, they have been a joy to both my husband and me.

    Now that they are grown, they remain dear to us, as well as the grandkids.

    You never stop worrying about them.
