How do I know pets are a substitute for children, even if you HAVE children? Nice graphic on how much we spend on our pets.

Pets clearly become the "baby" when the baby leaves home or there is not one  (child/children) in the first place.  This report by the BLS has some other interesting observations regarding spending on pets by households during the recession.
