Do Your Treat Your Pet Like A ‘Human’ Family Member?

You might think of cats and dogs as merely faithful companions but research shows that we are starting to treat them more and more like humans.I’m not gonna lie, I treat my three dogs like ‘family’ and they really are like my ‘furry kids!’ I used to dress them up for Halloween, mostly to see the joyful reaction the kiddies who were trick-or-treating, but I could tell that Priscilla pictured here in her Princess costume hated it, so I stopped doing it!

Brantley Gilbert

Tough Guy Brantley Gilbert Admits His ‘Three Biggest Fears’

I guess it’s good for me that he is not afraid of creepy stalker fans like me, who follow him up to his hotel room! BTW….just to set the record straight, that was purely coincidental as we were both staying on the same floor at the MGM in Las Vegas! LOL!! But there seriously are 3 things that Gilbert admits that he is afraid of!
