Yes, My Dogs Are My Kids… Is There Really a Commonality Between Dogs and Children? There are many mothers and fathers who will tell you that having children cannot compare to having dogs. These individuals are very wrong. Either that or they have never ever owned a puppy and they have never owned a German Shepherd. My husband and I were not fortunate enough to be blessed with children. We had fertility treatments, we looked into the foster care system, which we ran from.
When my husband and I could not have children, we were devastated and thought we had no chance at having a family. However, we soon learned to live with the brutal honesty and tried to move on with our lives. It wasn't until my husband started to have seizures again that I realized that not having children was God's way of protecting us. Of Course, my mother-in-law ask why he started having seizures again, after all "the only thing different was that we were all married now."
