Our family has a total of 11 pets. 2 cats, 3 dogs, 2 birds, and 4 ponies. My mother and I love all of our pets. My brother likes all of them except the ponies. But my father doesn't like any of our pets. He doesn't even call them by their names. He just calls them "Dog" or "Cat". He never pays attention to them or anything. It really bothers me that my father doesn't like our pets. I don't really want to start arguing with him about why he should love them. Is there anyway I can get him to at least call the animals by their names or give them some attention every now and then?
