Why do people use their dogs/cats to announce? No your dog isnt your first child... It's not a child its a 4 legged animal!! Don't get me wrong the "I'm getting a human in August 2016" is a tad amusing but your not mummy to your dog or cat (the cat ones are more bearable than the dog ones) so silly. "I'm going to be a big brother/sister" you already are.. I'm sure there was around 8 in your litter.. Your dog is NOT your babies brother/sister its their dog!!!!
