    18 Reasons Having A Dog Is Basically The Same As Having A Kid

    BEING A DOG PAWRENT IS SERIOUS WORK.

    1. Just like kids, dogs HATE being told no.

    Can’t tell Tank “no” for nothing in the world because then he does this and makes me feel like shit

    2. They (begrudgingly) let you dress them.

    My mum gets handmade clothes from America for my dog and I literally can’t cope 😂😩😂

    3. They're prone to *slight* temper tantrums.

    I love FB. This dog was mad that she got put in time out. Look at her throw her toy 😂

    4. And they can entertain themselves for HOURS.

    Lads look at my dog being the biggest baller !! that fuckin FOOTWORK oooofffff

    5. They'll wake you up like this at 2 a.m. to let you know they threw up:

    this is how my sisters husky wakes her up! enjoy

    6. They try to look their VERY BEST on Picture Day.

    I’m a school photographer and we got to take a service dog’s picture for the yearbook today 😭😭😭

    7. They like it when you hold their hand while crossing the street.

    The most surprising 15 seconds of my life by far

    8. And sometimes, they'll lock you out of the car for their own enjoyment.

    So my dog locked my mom out of her car

    9. They looooove to roughhouse.

    I’m just gonna leave this here...

    10. They like it when you tuck them into bed.

    “You really let your dogs sleep on your bed 🤢?” Me, a dog enthusiast:

    11. They regard the Barbie Jeep as the Holy Grail of toys.

    I was pissed because I didn’t make the light but then I got to witness this

    12. They need all their food specially prepared for them.

    dunkin won't eat his food unless it is microwaved, because he thinks that makes it human food (dunkinandkirby IG)

    13. But they're not always the best at eating at the Big Kids Table™.

    I can't stop watching 💀💀💀💀💀

    14. They're absolutely ~entranced~ by Disney movies.

    “Mufasa’s death is one of the most heart-wrenching movie scenes ever. There’s no way to make it any more sa-“

    15. No matter what they do, they truly never wanna disappoint you.

    Benji knows he’s in trouble so he tried to hit me with the puppy face 😂 I’m not caving in for that shit

    16. They try their best no matter what.

    All I see is a good boy doing his best.

    17. They're always happy to see you at the end of the day.

    Sugars reaction when he saw me arrive to pick him up from his play date/daycare 🤣❤️

    18. And when it comes down to it, they really just wanna make you happy.
