There’s a reason a lot of people practice their ability to keep another creature alive by adopting a dog before they decide to become parents. Dogs and babies are basically the same.
Think about it.
- They both love chew toys.
- Neither realizes that the other dog/baby in the mirror is actually their own reflection.
- Both will eat anything you put in front of them (or at least attempt to stick it in their mouth).
- They both depend on you for their food, water, toys and playtime.
