    24 Things That Are 100% True If You Have A Dog

    #4. It's really your dog's bed, and you're just allowed to sleep on it.

    1. First of all, your camera roll is 99.9% just pics of your bb.

    It's not YOUR fault they're so photogenic!

    2. There is no such thing as privacy in your home — not when your dog's around, anyway.

    Also not your fault: the fact that your pup wants to be with you 24/7.

    3. You have full conversations with your dog, and you imagine what they'd say back (and what their voice would sound like).


    And you have a very clear idea of what your dog's voice sounds like, for the record.

    4. It's basically your dog's bed, but you're allowed to sleep in it.

    But we all know who really gets all the space in bed!

    5. You recognize other people by their dogs, not necessarily by their name.


    You constantly refer to the people you know as "The guy with the corgi" or "My neighbor, the one with the poodle."

    6. Every time you leave home and can't take your furry BFF with you, you say goodbye to them as if it were the last time you'll see them..

    It's TOO painful. :(

    7. And you get extremely uneasy when you get back, and they're not there to welcome you immediately.

    There are only two explanations: something happened to your dog, or something happened to your stuff. You are scared of both explanations.

    8. You know that a big part of your paycheck automatically goes to your pet's needs...

    You'd rather miss a utilities bill than hold out on treats for your doggo.

    9. And somehow, you always end up spending way more on them than you planned!

    Fido needs five balls, eight toys and three sweaters in order to be happy, though!!

    10. You have purchased and made use of several dog outfits.

    Face it: You've dressed to match your dog at least once.

    11. And, of course, you seize any opportunity to dress your baby up according to ~the season~.

    Face it: you own at least three Halloween dog costumes.

    12. You feel like the worst person ever when your dog begs for your food, and you can't give it to them...

    13. Nothing is worse than accidentally stepping on your dog's paw or tail, and not being able to apologize to them.

    14. You've just come to accept the fact that there's dog hair on all of your clothing.

    It's kind of like having a small part of them with you, wherever you go!

    15. You're also resigned to the fact that certain items will just disappear for days, only to show up with bite marks all over them.

    It's just a fact of life.

    16. You're permanently stressed when you go on vacation and you have to board your dog up somewhere else, or have a dog-sitter.

    "I wonder if they miss me," is a thought that crosses your mind at least once an hour, obviously.

    17. You're more invested in your dog's social media accounts than your own.

    And you make sure they are following other dog accounts.

    18. You've spent many, many hours of your life trying to take "selfie"-style pics of your dog.

    It just never gets old, tbh.

    19. You get mad if other people say that your dog is fat or ugly, but when you do it, it's out of love.

    "OK, who's the cutest hideous doggie in this house?"

    20. Handling dog poop no longer fazes you.

    You've dealt with dog poop in all its iterations, in all situations, so it's chill now.

    21. You make plans depending on whether your "baby" can come with you or not.

    If it's not a dog-friendly bar, don't talk to me!!!

    22. You buy your dog much nicer things than you buy for yourself.

    You'd much rather splurge on them, anyway.

    23. You can feel your heart literally overflow when you hear their paws coming toward you.

    They are always just so excited :')

    24. And you know that you will NEVER, EVER, NOT IN A MILLION YEARS be able to repay the unconditional love that this furball has brought into your life.

    It's true!!!
