Here is a list only a fellow pet owner will understand. I think we can all admit, we do some pretty odd things to our pets; I mean they're CLOSER than family! We love them! When it comes to the ones we love, there is no line that has not been crossed. Here are some of the most bizarre activities people have owned up to engaging in with their pet.
1. "When we go out for like McDonald's or something, my mom and I buy them each their own burger and sometimes include fries so they can have a meal."
-Jess, on Maxie and Nikko
2. Wiping away doggy eye boogies with our fingers because who else is gonna do it?
3. "Sometimes I grab my dog's arms and make him slap his own belly because it's cute."
-Casey, on Frankenstein
4. "Putting my dog on my shoulders like a human child."
-Alyssa, on Minnie
5. "I've definitely caught my brother-in-law nibbling on his cat's ear..."
-Chris, on Cuddles (brother-in-law) and Dave Meowthews (cat)
6. Coming up with RIDICULOUS pet names for our pets.
7. "Dio kinda likes it when I boop his snoot."
-Aaron, on Dio

-Marissa, on Cody

Annnnd, last but not least, my personal favorite...
