How dogs are replacing babies

Recent research by the Centers for Diseases Control and Prevention in the US has found interesting results. 15 to 29 year old women are having fewer babies. Instead they are opting to own small dogs. It seems they would rather have a hassle-free alternative, who doesn’t scream, doesn’t need a baby sitter and is easy to transport.

Gone are the days when you were expected to marry young, have children young and the woman was expected to give up her career to raise the children. The world has changed dramatically and our society has come a long way since. Today, couples are getting married at an older age or not marrying at all and having children older.

Dogs have replaced babies for many people around the globe.
