Four-legged Family Members

A new poll finds that people think of their animal companions as much more than that.

We cuddle them, feed them, dress them, and more than anything, love them. We might as well set a place at the dinner table for them, seeing that an Associated Press-petside.com poll discovered that half of all American animal companion owners consider their four-legged friends just as much a part of the family as any other person. According to the poll, another 36 percent of people said their animal companions were part of the family but not full members. The poll also found that single women are the most likely to consider animals full-time family members. The next time the holiday family photo shoot rolls around, be sure not to forget Fido.
