Life is better with a dog.
I admit it. I’m a crazy dog mom. Is anyone not totally obsessed with their dog?
My dream is to one day own a large piece of land somewhere in the country so I can have like 50 dogs (big AND small — I don’t discriminate). Maybe a couple of other animals too, like horses and pigs … but mostly dogs. My dog is my baby and I love her, but sometimes dogs can be a real pain in the butt.
A couple weeks ago my mom and I were taking her for a walk at night in my neighborhood. She’s not the kind of dog that will run away when off leash because she is either incredibly loyal or just knows how good she has it. I still haven’t figured out which and I’ve had her for 11 years.
That night though, as we were passing the house of her best friend, she decided she would run into my neighbor’s backyard to go look for him. How romantic right? NO. So there we were at 11:00 at night, screaming her name, running up and down the street trying to find her. At that moment I knew how my mom felt that one time I hid from her in the grocery store. (Sorry mom!)
The worst or best part of the story is that after almost 2 hours of searching for her, we returned home to find her sitting on the front porch like she had been waiting there for us all along.
Despite what she put me through, I still love her because dogs are the only creatures on earth that never judge you and always love you unconditionally. Dogs just … GET … people.
They’re our best friends, family member, and loyal companion all rolled into one. There’s nothing and no one quite like them.
This is how you warn all your guest before they enter your home.
“If my dog makes you uncomfortable, I’d be happy to lock you up in the other room.”
You’ve lost feeling in your arm, but it’s ok because your dog is comfortable.
“That moment when you need to adjust your sleeping position, but feel bad because your pet is asleep on you.”
They’ve chosen you, so don’t let them down.
“You may have many best friends but your dog only has one.”
“I work hard so my dogs can have a better life.”

Most of the time you can’t even remember what you were crying about.

They just can’t stand to see you cry.

Dogs aren’t complicated like people, if they love you, they’ll show it.
Their loyalty knows no bounds.

Crying so hard now. Dogs really are the best teachers.
“Dogs come into our lives to teach us about love, they depart to teach us about loss. A new dogs never replaces an old dog, it merely expands the heart.”
They’re always there to greet you at door when you come home.
“A house is not a home without a dog.”
I connect with this on an emotional level
“I have found that when you are deeply troubled, there are things you get from the silent devoted companionship of a dog that you can get from no other source.”—Doris Day
