John Cave Osborne is a writer whose work has appeared on such sites as Babble, TLC, YahooShine, and the Huffington Post. He was also referenced by Jezebel one time, but he’s pretty sure they were making fun of him. While he’s name dropping, it’s only fair to point out that Ashton Kutcher tweeted one of John’s YouTube videos, but it may have only been because Ashton felt sorry for him. After all, John went from carefree bachelor to father of four in just 13 months thanks to marrying a single mom, then quickly conceived triplets. Since then, he and his wife have added one more to the mix, a little boy they named Grand Finale. They all live chaotically in Knoxville, TN with Briggs the dog.

Dogs vs. Infants

By John Cave Osborne |

Each and every year we get a Christmas card from a childless couple that proudly features their two wiener dogs, usually sporting some type of wacky outfit . You know why those dogs are front and center on the Christmas cards? Because they’re like kids to that couple. Before I had kids, I definitely considered Briggs (my chocolate Lab) to be my child. But now that I’ve got like 14 of them, I no longer consider Briggs to be my child. A member of the family, to be certain, but not my child.

Still, I totally get why many view their pets as children. And, what’s more, it has recently occurred to me that dogs and infants really are a lot alike. Which begs the question: who has the advantage? Dogs or infants?

Infant! Anyone who knows me knows how much I love dogs. Especially my dog. That said, sorry, Briggs! As much as I love you? In the end it wasn't even close. (The sleep-farting may well have done you in.)

    You’re not sorry for that picture! In fact, I think you may be proud of that picture. After all, it’s not the first time I’ve seen it. Perhaps the last?
