Or maybe you learned the hard way that pups reeeeeeeally like their routines β€” like when they wake you up at 7 a.m. on a Saturday to go poo poo.


Perhaps you were truly and utterly *SHOCKED* by how many full-length conversations you've ended up having with your fur baby.

Or maybe you were pleasantly surprised by how much your mental health improved from having unconditional love, going on routine walks, and just having someone to care for besides yourself.
