    21 Things That Happen When You Have A Really Massive Dog

    RIP to all the cups broken by your dog's powerful, swishy tail.

    1. Your dog has a tendency to underestimate its size.

    He doesn't realize that he is too big for our little dog's bed πŸ˜‚

    2. And you've had the leg-numbing experience of them using you as a seat.

    Because they think they're a lap dog.

    3. Harnesses are your best friend when taking your big dog for walks.

    4. And even when walking your dog is going just fine, some randomer will comment "it looks like that dog is taking YOU for a walk".

    Yes, how droll.

    5. No food is truly safe on the counter.

    6. Being practically human-sized means they act pretty human sometimes.

    7. You've used them as a comfy pillow before.

    8. And a footrest.

    9. Car journeys mean you end up in extremely close proximity to your pet.

    10. If they fall asleep on you, you know you're not going anywhere for a while.
