"Companion Animals"

It's very encouraging to see that my blogging has had such an impact on canine rights. This is but one sign that things are starting to change.

"Companion Animals" yes --- "Pets" no

Professor Andrew Linzey of the prestigious Animal Ethics Center at Oxford has followed my blog for years. Now he is calling for big changes in the way we view and refer to animals. He advocates an end of the use of the offensive word "pets." After all, what does it mean to be a "pet." It sounds a little perverted, if you ask me, and all us animals don't like it.

I agree with you Tommy. And I think you should go a step further and do away with the master-subject relationship that the animal-haters want to put you in. And, if you relinquish your 'pet' status, then you daddy can write you off on his income taxes. So it would be a win-win situation.
