Sadie’s chasing mice again

For those following the saga of my dog with cancer, the vet told us today that Sadie is in complete remission. In fact, after breakfast, she chased a mouse around the yard. The mouse got away, thank God. Sadie always insists on bringing her kills into the living room. Anyway, in the past week, she has regained six pounds, half of what she lost, and we’re cutting back the drugs. Good news.
What’s that got to do with being childless? Well, my sources show that most of the childless women I talk to are gaga about their pets. What does that mean? Are pets child substitutes? What do you think? Do you call yourself your dog’s or cat’s mother? Several different surveys have shown that more than 80 percent of pet owners do.
