Statistics show that 80% of Canadian mothers take paid maternity leave after giving birth. Well, recently a case has surfaced in Ontario which will likely forever change the way Canadians perceive the concept of maternity leave. 31 year-old, Barrie, Ontario resident Trish Lemierre is suing her employer after they refused to give her paid maternity leave after she adopted a six week old Bichon Frise puppy. 
Trish Lamierre, puppy owner wrote:
"I want my 40 weeks just like any other mother."

"Taking care of a puppy is a full-time job and if I am not there for every moment in the first year of its life I have failed as a parent," says Lemierre.   



When asked if she thought puppies and babies were different, Ms Lemierre responded: "Absolutely not! A puppy is a baby, a dog baby. I deserve the time to bond with my newborn too!"

Wow! Im a dog owner and lover but this is just crazy. I got Boost when he was 7 weeks old(which I found out later was too soon) but I trained him, potty trained him, took care of two kids, and worked. Its called crate training. My dog was just fine and did not suffer. This what she is doing is not the same as maternity leave for a baby!
