Thats just WEIRD!!!!.

I would happily breastfeed a young pet if it was a life and death situation, even though like baby formula their is heaps of alternatives created for animals that can not feed of its natural source.

But to BF a fully grown dog to stop it barking?

She is lucky it didint bite her nipple off.

No!

and what's with this comment:

QUOTE
Admittedly, Tasha, 17 months, was quite old to still be breastfeeding, but I loved the bond it gave us, so I'd decided to carry on.


17 mths too old to breastfeed but it's ok to feed her dog ... sounds like she needs to do some internet reading about the natural term of breastfeeding instead of reading about breastfeeding pets  rolleyes.gif

That's ****ing digusting! I wouldn't let any animal near my chest to breastfeed!

No and no. That's just wrong on so many levels.

I love my dogs but not that much  roll2.gif

I'm always suss on UK mags that say "REAL LIFE" on the cover.

To me this sounds like a typical aliens abducted me type tabloid story.

Why would an adult dog have the sucking reflex?  If anything it would bite your nipple not suck on it.  Even if it did, without the correct 'chomping' action that babies do, I doubt the let down would occur.

So as hilarious as that story is....I pass

I think I am going to be ill...

To begin with, I'm not what you'd call an animal lover, sure, they're great and all but I'd never let one at my boobs. Never.  EVER.

I know what it's like to have a screaming cat demanding his dinner, but when you run out of pet food you feed them whatever, mine will eat weetbix or a tin of spaghetti or some tuna or I go knock on my neighbours door or use the local shop / petrol station...OMG ugh!

My eyes, my eyes!

Those Take 5/That's Life magazines have got a lot to answer for wouldn't you say?  That is just so wrong and on so many levels.  *hurl*

Yuck. I'm sure I have seen pics of a woman breast feeding a cat before too. Equally YUCK.

Here is Tori Amos breastfeeding a pig

People will do anything for attention.

I am aware that in some cultures BF baby animals is the norm for survival, these animals are their income.

I am sure if they had a choice they would choose NOT to do it.

Tori Amos doing it is simply being a ASW, just like that weirdo in the article.

Totally wacky, weird, yuck, milk in the bowl is one thing, but putting the dog on, er no.
It wouldn't have been suckling from its doggie mother at that age so lets just say she is doing it more for her own intrigue and experience rather than helping out the dog.
Any way, poor doggie, she is probably stopping it eating dog food which is more appropriate for its growth/health needs than the milk of another species.
She might even be setting him up for a human milk allergy later in life.
Call the RSPCA!!!
Or the ?American association for the protection of vulnerable animals.

Some of my family were a little uncomfortable about me walking around the Adelaide Zoo, breastfeeding my 17 month old while we waited in line to see the pandas. (see my sig)
Clearly I could have been breastfeeding many more exotic options, for a really great photo!

Bugger it - next time we'll bypass the family photo with the panda statues and I'll just whip out my girls and sling them over the enclosure fence and give the hungry animals a feed.

Don't knock it til you try it!  huh.gif

Not to be rude, but the lass looks a little intellectually deficient.  This magazine is really taking the p*ss out of her, and she's fallen for it.  Sad really.  Hope the article doesnt upset her child when she grows up.....

I don't think it's a very good idea. Surely she had some meat in her freezer or something else to feed her dog?

I don't think I'd ever breastfeed an animal tbh. I could breastfeed another child (like Salma Hayak did), but while I do care deeply about animals and their welfare, I think there's other ways of providing them with good care...
