Do you think we love animals more than people?

Some people apparently do.
There was a copyrighted story this morning on the Associated Press wires by Leslie Earnest of the Los Angeles Times. The headline reads: “Pampering your little Sweet pea to the tune of $41 billion.” (That’s right, “$41 billion!” The story says that’s probably how much we’re going to spend on our pets in the U.S. this year.)

The sub-headline reads: “Owners are treating their animal companions more like humans. But the extent gives some experts pause.”

Do you think we really love our animals more than we love other humans?

Read this story and then tell me how you feel about it by posting a comment below in the space provided (or by clicking on “Comments”). I’m curious what you think about this.
