Writer's Block: Pet central

Some animal rights activists are fighting to replace the term 'owner' with 'guardian' to convey a more balanced relationship between a person and her or his pet. Do you agree or disagree with the importance of this mission?

I do agree that all animals are deserving of respect, as this is their Earth as well as ours.  Just because we are the dominate species doesn't give us the right to treat the other inhabitants of this planet like garbage. However, i really don't think that replacing the word "ownership" to "guardian" is going to do much of anything.  There are more pressing things to worry about than words.
