They’re goofy, they’re playful, they’re wholesome, dogs can be ridiculously adorable or downright disgusting at times but one thing for sure is that they never fail to bring joy to any with a simple nose “boop”.
Although usually placed higher than cats in the pet ranking list by many, having a dog is like having a kid around the house, you’d never know what they’ll do next; whether it be knocking over the vase, running head on into a sliding window or actually eating your homework, these “doggos” offer an experience of having a kid without actually needing to have a kid.
Here are 5 things every dog owner can relate to.
1) Dog hair is part of the house now
After years of watching that little pup growing into a full-sized adult, you’ve learned to accept the fact that dog hair is everywhere now. From the floors of your bedroom to every item of clothing in your closet, it is now part of your home.
2) No bathroom privacy
Dogs love you so much that they can’t spend a minute away from you, even if you’re taking that time off for a little loo time. Seeing their owners walk in a room and not appear again for the next 15 minutes is just too much to bear; that doesn’t mean they don’t have their own solution for it though as they’ll just have to scoot on in, make a bed out of toilet paper and look deep into your eyes while you handle your business.
3) Dog food is more gourmet food than yours
You’re fine with eating instant ramen or quite literally anything that is on sale at the grocery store because you’re used to the “college student” lifestyle. When it comes to your dog though, it’s as complicated as a Starbucks special menu order; only organic, non-GMO, gluten and dairy free whole foods that are produced by a farmer/artist named Abdul from the depths of rural Kelantan for that good boy.
4) Picking up poop doesn’t feel like picking up poop anymore
You don’t pick up your own poop or even someone else’s poop, but for your dog, you won’t hesitate for even a second to pick that bad boy from off the floor. Why do we do that? Maybe we’re just proud of the fact that they know how to do their business outside of the house now or we’re just giving our pals a hand, quite literally.
5) Your phone is full of their pictures
We get it, they’re cute. That isn’t enough though as you’ve got to let the whole world know about your pupper and its cuteness. Other than that, your Instagram and Snapchat stories are usually filled with their faces either close up near the “snooter” or from a full-on photoshoot of it hopping around the grass.
