    OMG YES! It would definitely annoy me. I hate when people humanise animals. Our modern western society is so crazy stupid about animals (particularly dogs!) sometimes. My mum has a dog, and she says things like 'he think's he's people', 'he's so spoilt', etc, whilst rolling her eyes - all tongue in cheek. But I would be annoyed if she put her dog on the same level of importance as my children. It's sooooo lame when people call their dogs their bubbas and try to pretend like they are people. Dogs are not people, dogs are dogs! Don't get me wrong, I like dogs, but I feel like they should be treated like dogs, not like children. Mind you, I grew up in the country in a rather isolated area, where if you had a sick dog, there was no vet available for hours and hours, so the kindest thing to do usually involved a rifle. I grew up farming animals, and our animals were treated humanely and well - but they are animals, not people.
    I also hate it when people call me my dog's 'mummy' - uuuuhhh I don't recall pushing that hairy thing out of my v2gina, I am NOT his mummy!

    ETA - Oh dear, I just read over my post & realised it's come across as a little 'strong' :P Sorry if I have caused offence to anyone. Every family is different, and I totally respect if your dog is your......baby. But it's just not for me!
    No not strong at all. I laughed at the pushing it out of your v@gina and cracked up laughing because it's true. I also laughed a little harder because I read it as:

    I don't recall pushing that thing out of my hairy v@gina.

    Wouldn't bother me. My sister's dog is known as her "kid" and I recently rang mum and asked if she and dad would mind looking after their "third grand child" for me on the weekend!

    Wouldn't annoy me, but I agree with Harvs- our mums are special people who can drive us insane with seemingly tiny things. I know mine sure does!
    I call my dog my fur baby. My Mil calls him her Grand-dog. My mum calls him "that stupid animal." But she secretly loves him and I have seen her bring him a whole steak!

    I don't know if it would bother me or not. But I have one ds , one cat and one rabbit. Cat and rabbit get referred to as offspring 2 and 3. Too bad if it bothers anyone.

    I would find it weird coming from my mum and I'd think she had gone senile!!

    But I don't think I'd take it personally.

    No, I don't think it would bother me.

    But I can understand someone finding it annoying.
