I'll be honest. I'm not a dog person...not at this phase in life. I agree that puppies are cute, but I have no desire to bring a puppy home and have to clean up after another little creature running around in my home. I find much greater reward from having and raising children than I feel I could ever find from raising a puppy. I do understand, however, that not every single person is going to think that my 2 year old is adorable. But now, we can see where most of America stands on the Puppies vs. Babies debate.
What about you? Where do you stand? Until November 23rd, you can vote in the to have a say in the Puppies vs. Babies online contest which is cuter-puppies or babies. The winning puppy or baby will win $5000.
For me, I think I will chose a baby over a puppy any day...besides, my kids pretend to be puppies often enough that any inkling of a desire I have for a puppy is completely satiated by their high-pitched woofs :). I just don't think a puppy will ever be able to melt my heart to the same degree that a little baby can so easily. I guess we'll see what America thinks.
