? I've noticed people with kids occasionally commenting that raising a golden puppy was (or would be) good prep for raising a human baby so I'm curious about people's experiences/perceptions with the differences and similarities of raising a baby golden vs a baby human. My golden had multiple bouts with giardia so we had a lot (cumulatively months) of getting up 3-6 times a night with her. So to me the process seemed quite similar to how I imagine raising an infant might be. But I only have fur babies so I have no clue. I'm curious to see how others think it compares.
