Dogs are cute and babies are gross.

7. The problem with babies is that they contribute nothing to any conversation they're a part of, and yet they're always the centre of attention.


9. You would never volunteer to babysit a friend's baby, but you would pay literal money to dogsit a friend's dog.

Dogsitting is your idea of the perfect evening, whereas babysitting is your idea of hell.

10. Even though you tell your friends that their babies look cute, you secretly think they all look like shrunken versions of fat, old men.

11. But not only are dogs cute, they can also be beautiful, and elegant, and glamorous.

Dogs are among the best looking animals out there.


13. But nothing delights you as much as a friendly dog in a pub!

Pub dogs are the best dogs.

14. Whenever you see a dog, you will always stop to introduce yourself and pay its owner a compliment.

You would never stop and introduce yourself to a baby, though.

15. If you don't already own a dog, you have given a lot of thought to what you would name your future pups.

For example, I will call my greyhounds Felicity and Keith.

17. And it's also gross that they wear nappies that have to be changed regularly.

Dogs are much too civilised for nappies. Teaching dogs not to poo everywhere just means going to puppy training, which is a pleasure because it's the cutest thing ever.

18. When a baby screams, you get so full of rage you could scream. But when a dog wines, you just give it a lil' tickle and everything's OK again.

19. When parents tell you about their baby's daily routine you die of boredom every time.


You will never care whether he slept through to 7am or not. Sorry but you just won't.

20. Whereas you'd always be happy to hear about a dog's day-to-day activities.

It's great to hear about a lifetime of long walks, naps, and eating food really quickly.

21. To conclude: Dogs are fab and babies are drab.

You can't argue with the numbers - dogs are better than babies
