smoking around pets... do you?
I have never smoked in my life. I actually used to think of smokers as people of inferior intelligence, almost subhuman. So, I am working on not being so judgemental because I am sure there are things I do that others do not approve of. I am still shocked every time I see a mother or father in a car with children puffing away. I don't understand why these people don't just tape their children's mouths to their car exhaust, if they want death that badly. Just wondering if people view smoking around pets the same as around children. I know there are some responsible smokers (I know, an oxymoron like "friendly fire, or humane execution") that go outside for their kids. I wonder if the people who smoke also go out for their pets. Pets are alive and have to breathe, and are also subject to second hand smoke. Have any of you ever heard of a story of a pet who got cancer from their owner's addiction? Do you know someone who actually goes out for their pets? I hope that people actually view their pets as something alive and give them the same respect they would a child. I don't expect people who don't go out for their kids to go out for their dogs or cats or snakes either, so that will not surprise me. Thanks!
