Dogs. Man’s best friend. The furry four-legged creatures that can turn your day around in 2 seconds flat. I am completely dog- obsessed. You tell me you have a dog, the first thing you’ll hear me say “do you have a picture?” and I will then demand you to show me the pictures that you have. I’ve been told by my friends that I have a problem ( I mean, is loving dogs a true problem?) and should just get a dog, but let’s be real. Would that really make me love dogs any less? Probably not. So, for all the other dog lovers out there, here are 12 things that you’ll understand if you’re dog obsessed like me.
1.Every time you see a dog you stop in your tracks to see it.
Sometimes you walk over to pet it, other times you stand there in awe and say “puppy”
2. You already have the names of your future pups
Some people know what they’ll name their kids, you already know the names of your 4 legged children.
3.You get offended when a dog barks at you
You just want their love, you didn’t mean to do anything wrong
4.When on a dating app you immediately swipe right when they have a dog
Who cares what the person looks like, you’re in it for the dog, duh!
5.You follow all the dog pages on Instagram and Facebook
And then immediately regret following them all because you see all the dogs that you can’t have
6.You’ll stop a conversation to announce that there is a dog nearby
Doesn’t matter if it’s 5 feet away or 100 feet away. You see that tail wagging, you’re announcing it to the world.
7. You can’t watch a movie where the dog dies ( or even gets their feelings hurt)
I don’t cry during romance movies or movies where the someone dies but when a dog dies, you better pass me that box of tissues.
8. Friends tell you that you have a problem
“ You need to get a dog! Your obsession has gone way too far” is a phrase I typically hear my best friend tell me
9. Your obsession has caused a distraction from you.
At my job, there is a bulletin board with pictures of all the staff members pets ( mostly dogs) There have been times where I have been walking through the hallway and nearly collided into the double- door frame a few times because I’ve gotten a little too distracted by looking at all the dogs. (true story)
10. Every dog you see at a puppy store you fall in love with.
Big ones, little ones, hyper ones, calm ones it doesn’t matter what the dog looks like, you want it.
11. You’ve begged your parents for a dog
“Please, please, please! I promise to take them on walks, and put food in their bowl, and love them unconditionally!!”
12. Whenever you hear someone say that their dog likes you, your day is made.
Seriously the best compliment that a dog-lover can hear.
