Adopting a Pet Before Having a Baby

Did You Prepare For Parenting a Baby With a Pet?

A LilSugar reader recently asked for first pet suggestions for her four and a half year old, which got me thinking about how many couples I know who tried their hand at parenting with a pup or kitten before getting pregnant. While most of you don't think it's fair to compare pet parenting to baby parenting, I think it's fair to say one can help prepare you for the other. Did you train at doggy school before you went to childbirth classes?

I think I would be better with a baby than a dog, but we will be getting a dog before we get pregnant, so I guess in a way, yes.
