I don't care what you say.

There is no way he is that dogs daddy.

I don't know. I have seen

I don't know.

I have seen dogs who act like this every time anyone comes in the door. In fact a knee to the chest a few times will break them from jumping. If you don't stop that behavior they will jump up on a small person and someone will get hurt. As a life long dog owner I don't see the joy in a dog misbehaving in a way that will cause harm to a human. It may look cute seeing the dog jump on a 180 pound solder but, how would that same act look if the dog jumped on an 80 year old lady or 3 year old child?

Side note:
Humans are not animal Dad's. Masters yes. The Dogs true parents are a stud and a bitch. Maybe this is why the "family" is being turned upside down. The definitions of Mother, Father, husband, Wife, and child are being twisted. Some what like the word "safety" is twisted to the point of being our very threat.

I wonder how this soldier would feel...

if someone shot his dog? He just got home from killing innocent people who have done nothing to us yet our animals are treated like kin. Sickening hypocrisy.

I look at this and think

I look at this and think scary. That guy is treating that dog like his girlfriend, or boyfriend, and it's bizarre to say the least. I love animals, especially dogs, but this is extreme affection for a beast.

"Oh, yeah, Daddy's home!" LOL! I say that to my wife!

There are many issues I have

There are many issues I have with this. First is the "daddy" thing. Second is how affectionate people are with their animals and that they don't train a line into their dog for affection. It's borderline sexual, and they are a father figure.

I also don't get why couples use terms like daddy or mama. If I had a spouse I would never call her my mama nor refer to myself as her daddy, nor would I want them to refer herself as my mama or me her daddy. Maybe it's okay if it's in jest, like when you get home, or when you have kids, you mostly stop using your first name when referring to each other. If it's done in a sexual situation, people need to seek help.

Great!

when you see what a dog feels . . .

it makes it almost unbearable to imagine the loss some children (spouses) feel when someone doesn't return--

or the joy when they do.

This was very special. I've known some loving dogs who are excellent greeters of their humans after a day of being gone, etc.--

but this is extraordinary; the dog really seems to 'know'--

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

some dogs do this after 6 minutes.

=)

Loved it!

I saw this the other day and loved it! :)

Grow up. The OP said the

Grow up. The OP said the dog's dad. How can a human be a dog's dad? He's the dog's owner. Anthropomorphizing animals is a sign of serious mental problems and a big reason for society's decline. Carrying on a conversation with an animal expecting it to listen or talk back is in the realm of people carrying dogs in purses.

Many animals have great heart and soul...

Many people, apparently including you, ramicio, do not. If you cannot see and value animals' souls, it is probably because you yourself have no soul or have a vicious, ugly soul.

Yep, dogs have souls, but

Yep, dogs have souls, but apparently a person who recognizes this does not. People like you piss me off. You see crap that just isn't there and you defer immediately to emotion and skip right over logic. Animals are just a part of nature. If a dog has a soul, an ant has to as well. I guess trees now have souls, too.

even though I have pets, I agree with you in part--

I wouldn't say serious mental problems, because humans have always loved dogs, and dogs have always loved humans (though there are exceptions in both species)--

but I agree about the dog having a human 'daddy'--

some people are just goofy like that; that is their business--

we care a lot about our dogs and take care of them (we never have more than one at a time, and it is always an abandoned animal nobody else wants)--

but we don't treat them like humans or call ourselves their parents/siblings--

But you could have expressed that in a way that was less threatening--

I didn't downvote you; you make a valid point, though you make it in a somewhat hostile way--

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

I am very hostile towards

I am very hostile towards things that irk me.

well, now *we* know--

LOL!

You'll be aware of the fact that that might make it hard for some people to want to talk to you?

You see, you do make some valid points. Though your wording is, ahem, "awkward", you make a certainly valid point that dogs are not humans, and humans are not dogs--

To some extent, the parent/child relationship is devalued when people talk about 'adopting' pets or being 'parents' to animals--
I believe that, though I believe animals have an important place in the lives of humans.

Most pet 'owners' have anthropomorphized their pets now and again--it's hard not to--

when a dog 'sulks', it's hard not to say, "good heavens; why so blue?"--

Some of us draw a hard line; we give our pet good food, but we don't give our pet 'people' food--
our pet (dog) is on the floor, not on our bed, but he has a good, sound floor 'bed' (dog bed; nothing fancy, but sturdy)--

So, you see, there are people who might agree with you, and there are other people who might want to hear what you have to say but who will dismiss you, because of your . . . 'anger'--

and that is too bad.

Peace--

Why shoot your mouth off

on a matter that you've obviously done zero research on, Ramicio? Why?

http://www.ptsd.va.gov/public/pages/dogs_and_ptsd.asp

From a Veteran, fuck you and yours. To me, your just like any other commenter on CNN and Fox: uninformed.

If you don't know your rights, you don't have any.

Right on, MykeTheVet.

This Ramicio idiot is a total jerk.

Thank you.

What did anything I said have

What did anything I said have to do with a soldier having PTSD? Huh? Fuck me and my what?

I said that a person is not a dog's dad. Then some asshole flipped out. Then I said that it's delusional to think animals are humans and are conscious, to which you responded with something about PTSD. What am I supposed to have researched? Have I never met a dog or any other animal? Is life experience not enough for anyone anymore that we need some "scientists" to think of something to research and most of the time be totally wrong?

If you're looking for someone to worship the ground you walk on because you're a "vet," you're barking up the wrong tree. You're like any other human to me. Do deserve no more or no less respect than anyone else. I didn't even ask for life, and I especially didn't ask anyone to be involved with war and then hassle me with the delusion that they defended my life and constitutional freedoms.

animals can be very therapeutic for some people--

especially dogs, who do have a special connection to humans and always have--

I have no doubt a beloved dog could help a man/woman with ptsd--

and ptsd happens to a lot of people, by the way, not just people involved in war, though ptsd from war is extreme and very difficult to deal with--

some of *us* don't believe these wars are good, but we can still have deep compassion for those who have suffered--

Dogs don't judge--

Very valid points. That guy flew off the handle about something totally unrelated. Anyone who reads into my comment as some sort of animal or dog hate are really just going around looking for a fight.

If you were joking,

then you fooled a lot of people.

I don't think you hate dogs, I just think you were poo-pooing the idea that dogs do something good for returning Veterans without doing any research.

If it was a sincere joke, then I apologize for "flying off the handle." Hard to make out a tone on the internet sometimes.

If you don't know your rights, you don't have any.

I wasn't poo-pooing any idea

I wasn't poo-pooing any idea of dogs being therapeutic. I was wondering why people refer to themselves like they are a blood relative of animals.

I have a close friend who refuses (or did; he/she has changed

his/her mind for the sake of children) to have pets (dogs), because a parent abused him/her and loved a dog--

totally mixed up--

I've seen that happen, too--

where a dog or cat is more beloved than children--

when people have seen that, they might be especially alarmed to see/hear a man/woman call themselves a 'daddy' or 'mommy' to an animal--

depends upon a person's life experiences--

animals can be good companions for people, especially for children, but it is highly important that humans come first--

I won't say that I think it's wrong to give a home to animals, especially those who are 'stray', who have been abandoned, but often it troubles me that it is easier for me to feed an abandoned animal from the 'pound' than to send food to a starving child in a 'third world' country--

I now this wasn't the original intent of this thread, but these are concerns *I* have--

I see nothing wrong with giving an animal a home. I don't see what's so hard these days about building an animal their own home. I haven't seen a dog house in probably two decades or more.
