Pets Treated Like People

Cotton, World's Dumbest Dog
(Courtesy Cotton World's Dumbest Dog)

The picture you see next to this post is of our (actually Jill and the kids) dog, Cotton. As dogs go he is one. He licks himself the way dogs should, he has accidents that I usually find with bare feet in the dark and he barks at the dinner table. He is treated better than me. Why is that? I’m at least toilet trained.

Anthropomorphism is the attribution of human motivations, characteristics, and behaviors to nonhuman entities. The word originated in ancient Greece, from the Greek words for “man” and “form,” to describe the characterization of pagan gods (and eventually the Judeo-Christian God) in human terms.
