Thirteen Reasons Why Dogs Are Easier to Raise Than Children

  1. Dogs eat less than teen-agers;
  2. Don’t ask for money all the time;
  3. Don’t ask for the car keys all the time;
  4. Are easier to potty train;
  5. Normally come when called;
  6. Don’t smoke;
  7. Don’t drink;
  8. Don’t have to buy the latest fashions to be “cool” in the eyes of their friends;
  9. Don’t ask to borrow your clothes;
  10. Don’t cost a “gazillion” dollars in college tuition;
  11. Don’t stay out past their curfew;
  12. Don’t cut class, causing you to get a call from the truant officer; and
  13. If they get pregnant, you can sell their children!


  1. Yeah, but what about the fact that in stead of saying hi, or shaking hands/kissing you, they smeel the butt of the opposing guest!!!
    Great list, and can througherly agree!!
    Stop on by and check out our list as well…

  2. Love it! Also you can stick a dog in a cage and leave the house- try doing that with kids! Great idea for T13!

  3. Haha… fantastic TT I only have canine kids, and this list makes me want to keep it that way. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Man! I wish I had thought of that before having 4 kids! But wait. You mean I can’t sell my kids on Ebay?

  5. I totally agree – plus, you can put them outside in the cold when they are naughty and they always eat everything on their plate!

  6. Hmm, we used to have 2 dogs and now we have 2 kids, and I’d have to say that the kids have been way easier to raise than those dogs were…

  7. People generally don’t take their very young dogs into restaurants, movie theatres and similar public places and look on indulgently as the creatures make non-stop screaming noises or run about the place, disturbing the grown ups.

  8. That’s why I am just gone to keep my cat. You can leave cats in all day.

  9. Cute list, and very true! ๐Ÿ™‚ Of course, cats are even easier than dogs – we use the litterbox! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  10. A terrific list. #13 is a lucky thing. Though, I do think dogs do steal your favorite clothes, they just like to chew on them as opposed to wear em.

  11. Brillant list. I thought #2 is hilarious. I’m getting quartered to death. “Mom, you have quarters don’t you?”

  12. All of those are great, but my favorite is #13. Gotta love kids that you can sell! Happy TT.

  13. Having three young rats myself, this is a great TT.

    Happy TT.

    Be well and enjoy the day.

  14. Dogs don’t:

    roll their eyes at you
    walk out of the room while you’re talking to them
    scream “I hate you!”

    Still…I wouldn’t give my teens away. I must be crazy! LOL
