    Here's encouraging news for parents-to-be, maybe they should reconsider giving Fido or Fluffy a new home before that baby arrives. Of course, I come from a home that always had animals, inside and outside, so I think having a non-agressive animal around for children is important to their development in other significant ways, as well.

    On the flip side, however, at least until mom commits suicide.
