Couple admit having baby as a dog substitute

After enduring months of gossip a Plymouth couple finally admitted that they conceived their son, Connor, as substitute for not having a pet dog. ‘Ever since we got married we wanted to have a dog,’ said Vicky, ‘but with busy careers and a tiny apartment, we’ve realised that it would be cruel to get one and leave it shut up alone for most of the day, whereas with Connor we can drop him off at nursery and forget about him until it’s time to pick him up.’

‘Don’t get us wrong,’ said Steve. ‘Connor’s a sweet little boy. But there’s none of the undemanding affection and sense of bonding you get when a dog learns to trust you. Perhaps when he’s old enough to go to the park and play fetch…I mean catch, things will be different.’
