2. You have, like, 95 nicknames for your dog that make zero sense.

3. You search pictures of dogs similar to your dog so you can show them to other people and say, "This looks just like my dog."

Just took a picture of a dog that looks like my dog so I can later show it to my dog. Totally normal behavior. 🐕

5. The first thing you do when you show up to a party is check to see if a dog lives there.

6. You can differentiate between your dog's different barks and will helpfully inform people about what they mean.
