I love my dogs with all my heart, I'm the weird dog lady.  But no, they aren't the same as kids.  


I think it's silly to find it offensive to ask if your kids are welcome. It's a yes or no answer.  I need to know if I can bring my kids because otherwise I need to find something to do with them. I don't care if they are welcome or not, I just need to know!  It's not like I can just go to a party on a whim.  That crap takes planning :)  If I can manage to come without my kids I will, but on the flip side, don't exclude my kids and then be pissy I can't make it.  They are little people, they can't just be left to their own devices!!  (You know, not dogs who can be left behind!)


In a funny twist, my plans Saturday night got goofy because my neighbor who takes care of my dogs was out of town.  The kids were handled, but no one could get the dogs.  So I had to get home.
