15 things that happen when you get your first puppy

1. Your puppy chooses you. Not the other way around.


Getting a puppy was one of the most stressful, exciting, difficult, and best decisions I’ve Ever made. Here are 15 things that happen when you get your first puppy.

1.  Your puppy chooses you. Not the other way around.

Your puppy knows that you belong to each other already.

2. You get way more than what you actually need, because it feels like you’re about to have a child.

Over doing it, is better than not. Right?

3. Comforting them will be a huge deal for a bit.

You have to remember that they’re not with their family anymore, and you’re everything that they have now.

4. You won’t know what sleep is for a few weeks.

Sleep? Ha. That’s funny.

5. Their first vet visit will have you in tears.

I’ve never felt so nervous, and emotional in my life... And my puppy was just fine.

6. Growth is inevitable, but not really noticeable at first.

At first you want them to grow. And then you want the growing to stop.

7. Everyone wants to meet your puppy, and you just want them all to yourself.

Can’t you just admire my baby from afar?!

8. Pictures. Pictures. And more pictures.

Your phone won’t know what hit it, and it definitely won’t have enough storage for what’s coming.

9. You will have a million questions.

Are you feeding them enough? Why do they sleep so much? Is their breathing normal?

10. Cuddles will become apart of every day.

When you finally do get some sleep, best believe you will be doing to together.

11. You start to feel love that you’ve never felt before.

When I say someone, or something is the love of my life, I really mean my puppy. She is the love of my life.

12. You want people to be obsessed with your puppy, as much as you are.

Yes. Scream, squeal, and be in awe of my puppy like I am. It feeds my greedy soul.

13. Pee and poop becomes apart of each day.

It’s not pleasant, but you do get excited when your puppy pees or poops. Believe me, it’s exciting.

14. Your energy better sky rocket.

You better get your ass up, and tire your little one out. If you don’t, you’ll regret it.

15. You have a forever best friend.

This is the start of an amazing chapter in your life. Cherish it. Bask in it. Never forget it.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.

We Asked You How You Felt About Resuming 'Normal' Activities, And Some Of Your Answers Shocked Us

The New York Times asked 511 epidemiologists when they'd feel comfortable doing "normal" activities again, considering COVID-19. We asked our peers the same thing, for science.

Last month, the New York Times surveyed about 500 epidemiologists asking about their comfort level with certain activities once deemed normal — socializing with friends, going to the doctor, bringing in the mail. That's all well and good for the experts, but they are a very niche group, not the majority of the population. What do "normal" people feel safe doing? In certain states, we've seen how comfortable everyone is with everything (looking at you, Florida), but we wanted to know where Odyssey's readers fell on the comfort scale. Are they sticking with the epidemiologists who won't be attending a wedding for another year, or are they storming the sunny beaches as soon as possible?
