The ads seems to contradict themselves (and I get that's sort of the joke). But dogs or kids -- same difference: you're still responsible for a living thing 24 hours a day. Why not remind me of all the cool stuff I'm free to do because I don't have that responsibility.

@phony ads

How can you equate children (humans) with dogs? It's ridiculous to imply that they both require the same amount of attention or care.

Awesome campaign. I like everything Tulipan.

You equated dogs with humans. Not me. I said they're the same RESPONSIBILITY in terms of caring for a life that can't take care of itself. If you're o.k with the ads and the thinking behind them, fine. I'll live.

Not quite the same. You can leave the pet home while you're at work. Not so w/a baby. Many people get a pet to learn to care for something easier, and work their way up to a child. And why all the vitriol? You'll only live because your parents didn't get a dog instead.

In some countries dogs and kids are the same when it comes to treatment. Great for dogs, bad for kids. Oh and this ad is lame.

because therefore it is

agree with phony ads..
for me it looks like "can't have a child, adopt a dog" ad.

I appreciate that they have tried to do something different in a very crowded category. Unfortunately, it's just not very interesting.

Nice campaign, nice to see new takes on the subject. I just wish you should have stayed with this one piece, the other ones suck and they don't have the same insight i think. The scene represents something this young couple, enjoys while they wait for the right time to start a family. In this case the COOL thing is they're doing what people don't regularly do with dogs, celebrate a dogs birthday, ok some do but it's not a must. And that is what i think the other pieces lack. And thats why in this piece i dont think it replaces the role of a child with a dog. But the other ones do. 8/10 for this one, 3/10 for the other 2.
