10 Signs You're A Dog-a-Holic

Nothing is more exciting than coming home to a wagging tail and barks of excitement. Since the beginning of time, dogs have been known as man's (and woman's!) best friend. Other than being adorable, dogs have many other wonderful traits that make us love them. It is scientifically proven that owning a dog reduces stress and increases happiness levels. Even if you don't own a dog, watching a cute video of a dog has been proven to relieve stress while at work (in moderation, of course). Many dogs are trained to remind their owners to take their daily medication, and some can even detect when their owner might be having a seizure. A dog's main goals in life are to protect their owner and to make them happy. No wonder why us humans are so obsessed with them! Here are 10 signs that you might be a dog-a-holic (and there's totally nothing wrong with that!).

1. You follow more dogs than you do people on Instagram.

Yasss Marnie you look so good! Slay queen!

2. Every time you see a cute dog video, you just have to show all of your friends.


3. You're a member of this group on Facebook.

And if you're not...go join it right now! Seriously, it might be the greatest thing to ever happen to Facebook.

4. You constantly browse Petfinder and Adopt a Pet to see all of the dogs that are up for adoption.

But it's so hard to choose just one, so you might as well just adopt them all!

5. The Puppy Bowl is like a second Christmas to you.

Obviously it's superior to the Super Bowl. The players are way cuter!

6. Your friends know by now that you're not coming over to hang out with them; you just wanted to see their dog.

"OMG I've missed you so much! No, not you...your dog."

7. There is nothing more exciting than seeing a dog out in public.

"So good news. I saw a dog today!" And of course if you're with your friends, you will most likely slap them and scream "Dog!" to make sure that they don't miss it (OK, you might do this when you're alone too).

8. Especially if their owner says that you can pet them!

Bless your kind soul.

9. Nothing makes you happier than dogs in costumes.

I wonder what he's going to make! Either way, I'd still eat it because he looks so cute in that little chef's coat!

10. You pray that your future husband/wife loves dogs just as much as you do.

Hopefully you'll look as good as these corgis on your wedding day (probably not though).

I remember how exciting summer was when I was a kid. I would just be eagerly waiting for school to end so that I could fly to some exotic location with my family for the summer. Or hang out with my friends every day. Or just lay around in bed or read, paint, draw, basically do whatever.

Soccer, Spain and Racism
