5 Times When Your Dog is Most Likely Judging You

No one can truly judge you, except for your dog.

When I come home, the first thing I look forward to every day is to have my dog greet me at the front door. I could've been gone for 10 minutes, or even a few hours, and the reaction is the same every time: tail wagging, panting, jumping on his hind legs, and just overall excitement and pure joy. That's what I love the most about dogs, everything about them is so pure. Three years ago, I finally got a dog of my own, and being a dog mom has taught me many things. One of the main lessons I've learned from my dog is that no one, and I mean no one, can judge you as hard as your dog can. So, let's go over 5 instances where your dog is most definitely judging you.

1. When you've binge watched the entire season of a show on Netflix (*cough* Stranger Things *cough)

We've all been there - huddled up in our blanket on our couch or bed, sweatshirt on with the hood up, food, drinks, and wrappers scattered all about - when suddenly that dreaded "Are you still watching?" message pops up. The shame you feel there only intensifies when you look over at your dog, who's been faithfully lying next to you the whole time, is staring up at you with those judgmental puppy-dog eyes.

2. When you eat your last bite of food without sharing.



HOW DARE YOU? Those eyes make you feel like a terrible monster, even if it was a chocolate bar that he/she couldn't have anyway . . .

3. When you do that "fake throw" with their tennis ball and they don't fall for it.



After about the fourth or fifth time, it can get hard to trick your dog into thinking you threw the ball when it's just sitting in your hand behind your back. They always give you that look as if to say, "I'm onto you human, and let me just say, I am not amused."

4. When they can see you giving another dog attention, or smell the scent of another dog on you.

When you come home after petting another dog, you can see the betrayal all over your dog's face. They're definitely thinking, "someone in this relationship is being unfaithful, and let me just say, it's definitely not me."

5. When you try to pose them for that perfect Instagram post.

I mean, just look at that dog's face, definitely not feeling this pose. That's probably what makes this Instagram post so great though, that and the fact it has Mike and Steve from Stranger Things.

You are definitely your own worst critic, but if you own a dog, then you know that they judge you harder than anyone else in your life. Even so, they're always there for you during the highs and lows in your life, and they will always stick by your side. So even though they might judge you, they will always love you unconditionally.

Being the keeper of tiny humans can be a very interesting job. You are constantly breaking up arguments, cleaning up messes, trying to keep them safe, and telling them not to do things that are well, sometimes pretty weird. They do and say the strangest things that'll make you wonder what is really going on in their little heads.

1. "No no no, don't do *something crashes to the floor* ....that."

2. "Bubbles in your mouths every body!"

3. "No, we don't eat our friend's snack."

4. "Hands to yourself."

5. "Get off of the table before you hurt yourself."

6. "Why do we even give them spoons?"

7. "We don't put toys in our mouths"

8. "Did you wash your hands?"

9. "Where do we run? Where are we right now?"

10. "Where are your shoes?"

11. "We don't talk like that here."

12. "Go tell them you're sorry"

13. "Get your finger out of your nose"

14. "Inside voices please!"

15. "Every one find a buddy."

16. "Ew ew ew, some body get me a tissue!"

17. "How did your shoes untie already? I just tied them five minutes ago."

18. "We do nice with our hands."

19. "Oh god, it's spaghetti day."

20. "Please, do not put noodles in your hair."

21. "Hold hands until we are on the play ground!"

22. "5 little monkeys jumping on the bed, one fell off and bumped his head..."

23. "Do you have to poop?"

24. "Well you should at least try."

25. "Why didn't you go to the potty before we went outside."

26. "If I hear "Let it go" one more time..."

27. "Hot dog, hot dog, hot diggity dog.."

28. "Mommy and Daddy will come back, I promise."

29. "No, no biting!"

30. "She had it first, you'll just have to wait until she's done."

31. "Ew, why are you dipping everything in applesauce?"

32. "Now, are you going to eat the vegetable with the ranch or just the ranch?"

33. "Then why did you say you weren't eating snack?"

34. "Put your arms back in your sleeves."

35. *Five minutes before closing* "Where are your parents??"

36. "I finally got him to sleep, everyone be quiet."

37. *You see one eye open* "Oh no..."

38. "Wow, all your kids are still sleeping!?" (We wish we said this more often)

39. "Don't eat that, it was on the floor!"

40. "Glue the google eyes on here." *puts the eyes anywhere but there*

41. "Stop fighting over who's going to turn off the lights, you'll get a turn tomorrow."

42. "Don't shove so much food in your mouth at once, you'll choke!"

43. "Chew and swallow your food before you get up."

45. "Don't touch anything until we wash your hands!"

As weird as these small people are, they are some of the sweetest beings on the planet. And although they drive you crazy, at the end of the day, they make you love your job.

To My Dogs As I Leave For Australia

Don't worry, I will always come back.
21
views

Anyone who goes away to school and leaves their dogs behind knows that the struggle is real. All you ever want to do is see their face and cuddle them, but the problem is that they need to stay at home. Every time I leave for Pittsburgh, or any trip for that matter, I have to leave my dogs, Thyme and Penny behind. This time, I’m about to leave for Australia so here’s a letter to my two favorite girls.

First of all, I need you to know that leaving you is extremely difficult because I can’t explain to you why I need to leave. It’s hard to watch your little faces and expressions grow more and more worried as more boxes and bags get packed each day. I can see how confused you are while I pack up, and I know that you know that I’m going somewhere, without you. I want you to know that I love you more than anything, and I will always come back.

Secondly, how are you doing? Have you been good girls? Have you chewed any cool toys? Did Mom give you any treats? Did she get you any new fancy toys? Did you get to go on any fun trips?

Finally, I miss you both so much! I talk about you all the time and everyone who knows me, knows about both of you. I have pictures of you everywhere, and of course you’re my phone’s background photo. All my friends love you, and think you’re the most beautiful two labs ever, even the ones who haven’t met you yet.

While I’m gone, take care of our family. Make sure you bark really good and protect them from any squirrels and deer in the yard. Take care of our Banjo, even though he thinks he’s a dog, we all know he’s a cat. Make sure you always jump on Mom, Dad, and John when they get home and most importantly, don’t worry because your summer will still be awesome, even without me. Dad will take you to the pond, on hikes, and on errands, and Mom will sit out in the garden with you. Try not to knock over their morning coffee ladies, they work so hard for us. Also, don't traumatize Splotch, and try not to bust into the pantry, it always makes you sick.

While you’re enjoying your summer, keep in mind that I’ll be back in a few months, and you can look forward to the day I’m back and you can skip out on your crates for a night. We’ll cuddle and sleep in my room (ps. We’ll keep it a secret from Dad). When I’m back, don’t forget to share my bed with me! We’ll snuggle, take Snapchat videos, and watch our favorite shows all night long.I can’t wait to see you again. I love you!

Love,

Your favourite big sister, Annie.
