6 Times You Wanted To Get Rid Of Your Dog

But you didn't because you love them. Or maybe because they know how to make the "innocent" face at just the right time.

6 Times You Wanted To Get Rid Of Your Dog

1. They pee on your floor, or your bed.

There are two times when your dog pees when it shouldn’t have.

Sometimes they pee because they’re so PISSED at you they need to show you by PISSING. Most dogs resort to simply peeing on the floor when they’re mad at you. However, I used to have a dog that slept with me in my bed every night, but I had a friend from out of town over and so the dog decided to pee in my bed to establish that there wasn’t enough room for all three of us in the bed. My grandparents' dog was also known for pooping on the rugs (even though the majority of their house was hardwood) when she was mad at my grandma.

Or they’re so excited and happy to see you that they lose control of their bladder. Which is kinda flattering. But not really.

2. They chew up everything.

“There’s something wrong with my bed…I think it will be much comfier if I shred it to peices” - Dog

“Your shoe would look much more fashionable if you can’t wear it anymore” - Dog

“I’m going to remodel the house today” - Dog, right before he chews the door, pillows, floorboard, and everything in-between.

3. They take up the ENTIRE bed, couch, etc., no matter how big or little they are.

You don’t even see it coming. One moment you’re sleeping or sitting comfortably and then the next moment your dog is in your spot and theirs. They aren’t just happy with sleeping on the bed. They need to be on top of the bed and on top of the pillow that’s on the bed. One couch may be enough for three humans but one dog is max capacity.

4. They think all food is their food.

You make a delicious sandwich for yourself. You took time to put on the meat and the cheese, cut the lettuce and tomato and even add your favorite sauce. Your sandwich puts Subway to shame. You set it on the table and before you sit down, you realize you need a drink to wash it down. You turn around for approximately three seconds to grab a drink from the fridge. When you turn back around, I promise you that sandwich is long gone because your dog ate that sandwich in one gulp. Didn’t even chew it.

5. They bark constantly.

Your dog just really, really loves you and wants you to be safe at all times, but doesn’t understand that your friends, the mailman, and the air are actually not bad guys.

6. They have the WORST gas.

It’s probably because of No. 4, but their farts just seem to smell worse than any human, even a man. Which is really hard to do, but somehow dogs do it...

… but we love them anyway.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.

Open-mindedness. It is something we all need a reminder of some days. Whether it's in regards to politics, religion, everyday life, or rarities in life, it is crucial to be open-minded.
