I'm jealous of them!!
After having kids my pets are such hard work tokeep up with I am committed to giving them a home until they pass on so I'm stuck with them LOL
I dream of a home with no cat hair & no kitty litter or dog spew/poo to clean up! (my dogs 15yrs old so has accidents sometimes)

Ok this is going to be a bit disjointed but please follow me...
Dh and I had a puppy (costly one at that) before dd came along and when she do the two of them got on really well.
At age 3, the puppy developed a very serious Back problem which lead to her being in constant pain and losing all use of her back legs. After a week of helping her do everything, it was getting worse and we had to have her put down. Her breeder is really upset as well and will give us a puppy whenever we are ready...
Dd is 2.5 at the moment. Dh works full time and I work 4 days. I am out of the house from 6:45 til 5:45 every work day. My mum comes here to have Ed when we work.
It would be unfair to expect her to take care of a puppy too...
Dh has sporting commitments in the evening so does that from 6:00 til 9:30 leaving me and dd.
Neither of us feel it would be fair on a puppy at the moment...
Do we want one? Yes. Would it be fair right now? No.
Will we one day? Yes.
Sometimes it isn't just about what we want!
Oh and in answer to the op- what do I think? Part of me thinks they must have a good reason and part of me thinks it's their life and not my place to judge.

We don't have any pets at all. I have 4 young children, they are begging for a puppy, I really detest dogs so we will not be getting one. Okay iguess I shouldn't say we don't have any as we do have a fish!!
My husband also got attacked by a dog when he was 5 and it left him with very visable scars on his face, he has never been very comfortable with the idea of a dogwith young kids.

I don't think they're weird. But those that don't like animals in general are weird.
I'd love to get a pet once we live somewhere where we can have pets or if I own my own home. I would get one when DS is older & can help take care of it a lot better. However, it has to be when I can afford it. It's still another mouth to feed & vets don't bulk bill.
