10 Reasons Why Dogs Are A Woman's Best Friend

10 Reasons Why Dogs Are A Woman's Best Friend

They say "dogs are a man's best friend," but I beg to differ.

The saying goes that "Dogs are a man's best friend," but I disagree. They also say that "Diamonds are a girl's best friend," but I'd rather have 10 dogs over 10 diamonds any day.

I'm pretty sure we can all agree that dogs are just as easily a woman's best friend, if not more. Women, by nature, are more nurturing and more compassionate; two qualities which are necessary for every dog owner. Since when did dogs become associated with masculinity? Dogs are loyal, fun-loving, energetic companions and all of those are traits which both men and women possess. Here are ten reasons why dogs are in fact a woman's best friend as well:

1. They are always there to greet you.

When you first walk through the door, your dog is the first to greet you. they jump on you and wag their tail as if you have just been away at sea for seven years. Even if you just went to the grocery store and back they will greet you as if they have missed you like crazy. No one else is going to greet you like that.

2. They don't judge you.

They will watch you eat that fourth slice of pizza. They will watch you pretend to be Mariah Carey when you're home alone. And they'll sit there as you click next on Netflix to round out an entire season in one day. All of this, they'll do without judgement.

3. They make for the perfect date.

No one to eat with? Your dog will join you. No one to watch TV with? Your dog will join you. No one to go to the park with? Your dog will join you.

4. They have the same taste in food as you.

By same taste in food I mean anything that falls off the table.

5. They will make you feel better when you're sad.

Dogs know when you're feeling sad and they are the perfect companion to cheer you up.

6. They're always down to have fun.

Your dog is always willing to play fetch, go to the park, or wrestle with you. Whatever it may be, they are always willing to have fun.

7. They are (sometimes) willing to cuddle.

Your dog will cuddle with you one minute and lay its head across your legs and the next it will run out of your embrace when you show affection. Either way, some cuddling is better than none at all, right?

8. They will defend you.

Your dog will bark at anyone or anything that seems like a threat. Some dogs are better watch dogs than others though, let's be honest.

9. They'll help you clean up.

Dropped some food on the floor? Your dog will help you. Need some help clearing your plate before you wash it? Your dog has got your back. Don't act like you've never done these things before.

10. They love you no matter what.

The best thing a dog is good for is loving you unconditionally. No matter what happens, your dog will always be there for you. Some people are not even as loyal as your dog. That's why a dog is easily a girl's best friend.

8 Reasons Why My Dad Is the Most Important Man In My Life

Forever my number one guy.

Growing up, there's been one consistent man I can always count on, my father. In any aspect of my life, my dad has always been there, showing me unconditional love and respect every day. No matter what, I know that my dad will always be the most important man in my life for many reasons.

1. He has always been there.

Literally. From the day I was born until today, I have never not been able to count on my dad to be there for me, uplift me and be the best dad he can be.

2. He learned to adapt and suffer through girly trends to make me happy.

I'm sure when my dad was younger and pictured his future, he didn't think about the Barbie pretend pageants, dressing up as a princess, perfecting my pigtails and enduring other countless girly events. My dad never turned me down when I wanted to play a game, no matter what and was always willing to help me pick out cute outfits and do my hair before preschool.

3. He sends the cutest texts.

Random text messages since I have gotten my own cell phone have always come my way from my dad. Those randoms "I love you so much" and "I am so proud of you" never fail to make me smile, and I can always count on my dad for an adorable text message when I'm feeling down.

4. He taught me how to be brave.

When I needed to learn how to swim, he threw me in the pool. When I needed to learn how to ride a bike, he went alongside me and made sure I didn't fall too badly. When I needed to learn how to drive, he was there next to me, making sure I didn't crash.

5. He encourages me to best the best I can be.

My dad sees the best in me, no matter how much I fail. He's always there to support me and turn my failures into successes. He can sit on the phone with me for hours, talking future career stuff and listening to me lay out my future plans and goals. He wants the absolute best for me, and no is never an option, he is always willing to do whatever it takes to get me where I need to be.

6. He gets sentimental way too often, but it's cute.

Whether you're sitting down at the kitchen table, reminiscing about your childhood, or that one song comes on that your dad insists you will dance to together on your wedding day, your dad's emotions often come out in the cutest possible way, forever reminding you how loved you are.

7. He supports you, emotionally and financially.

Need to vent about a guy in your life that isn't treating you well? My dad is there. Need some extra cash to help fund spring break? He's there for that, too.

8. He shows me how I should be treated.

Yes, my dad treats me like a princess, and I don't expect every guy I meet to wait on me hand and foot, but I do expect respect, and that's exactly what my dad showed I deserve. From the way he loves, admires, and respects me, he shows me that there are guys out there who will one day come along and treat me like that. My dad always advises me to not put up with less than I deserve and assures me that the right guy will come along one day.

For these reasons and more, my dad will forever be my No. 1 man. I love you!

The Old Oak Tree

A short poem about returning to one's childhood home.


Looming over the burned-out house is an oak tree,

Hundreds of years old at least.

The smell of smoke is gone, but skeleton of the house remains,

A mere speck when compared to the tree.

Whose branches reach out to me like hands,

Begging for me to come closer.

I do.

I sit under the tree like I did when I was young.

The ground is damp from the rain,

I feel the sogginess soaking through my jeans.

I remain.

It is cooler under the branches,

A limitless amount of leaves shades me from the daylight.

I stay there. All day.

Staring at the charred remains of my childhood home.

I stay there until fog begins to form in the crisp night air,

Cold and sharp against my cheeks.

No longer able to withstand the cold, I take my leave looking back once more.

It's nice to know that even when I'm gone,

The old oak tree remains.
