14 Signs You Have An Unhealthy Attachment To Your Dog

, , , , , , , , , , ,

1. You’ve willingly said no to schemes because of your dog.

Clubs? Gallery Openings? Even simply “states parties ” ten minutes from your place? HARD. PASS. You have a fluff ball of love to get back to and no one will stop you!

” Hey we’re all going to hit happy hour since they are give away free liquors until 8 PM !”
” Oh I totally would but like…Bella requires me and I’d rather have her shed all over my black pants and slobber all over my limbs right after I’ve rained so …”

2. You show off their portraits like they’re a child.

Someone is showing an adorable video of their two-year-old going to the bowling alley for the first time? Step aside. You saw a plethora of tiny hats on etsy and invested a good clod of your day off posing your puppy with different top hats and sombreros. Everyone needs to see it, obvs. Yes that includes the Target checkout lady. Don’t judge.

3. You worry about them like crazy when you’re out of town.

It builds PERFECT sense for the dog sitter to let you FaceTime with them. Sure, they just end up barking at the screen because you’re not altogether positive that they can even realize things that are happening on aluminosilicate glass but STILL. It helps your heart and you merely end up screaming a little every time.

4. You swear they have opinions.

The scene in where the pet store employee has the audacity to suggest that a fish is the same as a bee hit lane too close to home. Your bird-dog would perfectly be able to tell the difference and would not have it. People these days…

5. Your bird-dog “re going to the” spa more than you do.

Your roots are showing off more than the Kardashians on a yacht in Greece but Ivy needs a feather trim and likewise an ear cleaning? What to do, what to do? Well that four-legged desire machine is going to get first dibs. It may seem ridiculous that a bath, haircut, ear clean, and nail file for a dog costs as much as a highlight; but beauty is PAIN, darling. Species be damned.

6. You’ve kicked people out of bed for them. Literally.

” Um no…there’s not room for you here. She sleeps at my feet and like…we have a system that doesn’t include a third party. I can call you an Uber I guess ?”

7. But if they pay attention to someone more than you, you get some serious resentment going on.

How DARE they run belly up for someone they’ve known for all of five minutes. Don’t they realize that you’re the one who has fed them every day for their entire lives ?! Don’t they know about the terror that gone over you when they were get their first round of shoots ?! That really is what betrayal feels like.

8. You’re on a first name basis with the vet because you freak out.

Any sign of something being off and you call the vet. You’ve texted her scenes, you’ve panicked about a chocolate microchip, you’ve even held taking in a puke sample because something was clearly off. Thank god for wellness schemes because otherwise, you’d be totally broke.

9. You would never consider calling them” our puppy” even if in a LTR.

There is no ” our” about such a situation. If this relationship goes to shit “theres been” no doggy visitation rights. This is YOUR dog. There’s nothing more to say about it.

10. You have more meaningful conversations with your puppy than anyone.

What’s that? They don’t talk back because they don’t have the cognitive ability to understand what you’re jogging on about? Clearly you’ve never discussed the in’s and out’s of the Presidential campaign with your puppy and candidly, I feel sorry for you. I came to some pretty big epiphanies about my job while brainstorming with my pup. Just sayin’.

11. You refuse to apologize for their bad behavior.

His barking is not annoying, that’s just him expressing himself. Her crazy compulsion to hoard socks is not a bad habit, it’s just quirky. They aren’t being awful by rolling in the grass straight after get a bath, it CLEARLY feels good. Gosh guys, lighten up.

12. You would bring them everywhere if you could.

It’s a shame that not all dogs are as portable as tiny puppies. It would make it so much easier to bring her to brunch if she fit inside of a handbag. I still refuse to get a puppy stroller but like…I get it. Won’t buy one, but I get it.

13. It’s the OTHER dog that has the problem , not your’s.

There is such a thing as bird-dog bully in the dog world but your dog could NEVER be the bully. They’re just barking because the other one barked first. DUH.

14. You genuinely consider them your best friend.

Through thick and thin they’ve been there for you. Friends may come and go but their love is genuinely unconditional. They are always happy to see you, and always there to be cute as inferno and throw their psyche on your knee when you’re sad. They deserve the $10 chicken jerky because they’re candidly the best. And you will never be as good of a a person as your bird-dog.
