7 Things All Dog Lovers Can Relate To

Let's just get one thing straight: dogs rock. In my opinion, everyone should have a dog, and there is a dog out there for everyone. I, myself, do not have a dog, but I for sure am a "dog person". I freak out when I see dogs, I will cry when I see them, and whenever I am at someone's house and they have a dog, I don't pay any attention to what is going on around me. I will sit on the floor for hours and pet the dog. If you are anything like me, you may be able to relate to some of these:

1. Seeing a dog on the street and getting more excited than a little kid on Christmas:

If you are anything like I am, you become a complete embarrassment to be around in public when you see a dog. You make sure to turn to every single on of your friends and ask them if they see the dog and if they want to pet it and you start smiling so big it feels like your face is going to split in half.

2. You don't really cry when people in movies die, but when a dog dies it's game over:

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F10%2F14%2F636120802997570035-1626194622_giphy-1.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=380&h=f103dffff4b3517f374563b57e38b2c5cd4b526dd3ed0dd2e1d552e0f98f312e&size=980x&c=2960210857 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F10%252F14%252F636120802997570035-1626194622_giphy-1.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D380%26h%3Df103dffff4b3517f374563b57e38b2c5cd4b526dd3ed0dd2e1d552e0f98f312e%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2960210857%22%7D" expand=1]

Okay, it is sad when people in movies die. When your favorite character comes to an end, it feels like your heart has been ripped out. But when a dog dies, oh man... It feels like your heart has been ripped out, then stomped on a million times. It's different, that's a fact.

3. You will go to pet stores for fun:

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F10%2F14%2F6361208078168962241641373892_alex-puppy-1.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=515&h=2fc600513417f3a0bd946194dfc678d998fa0dd56fa1c1751d72fe3b7a91a69a&size=980x&c=3762774385 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F10%252F14%252F6361208078168962241641373892_alex-puppy-1.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D515%26h%3D2fc600513417f3a0bd946194dfc678d998fa0dd56fa1c1751d72fe3b7a91a69a%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3762774385%22%7D" expand=1]

Over the summer, my friends and I used to go to PetSmart for fun. We would literally just go to play with the kittens and the puppies. Whenever we had free time with nothing to do, we would go to Selmer's or any of the local pet stores just to sit around for hours petting the tiniest little pugs and huskies until the store closed (and yes, that has happened).

4. When a dog begs for food, of course you will slip them a little piece (no matter how many times your friend tells you not to):

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F10%2F14%2F636120810329465745-1799763864_7eGFo3I.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=623&h=d5d804b7494e2ee6c4f5e6525d2ac984c4c9bbff33335ab71f3fcf6be706d5fb&size=980x&c=1852407996 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F10%252F14%252F636120810329465745-1799763864_7eGFo3I.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D623%26h%3Dd5d804b7494e2ee6c4f5e6525d2ac984c4c9bbff33335ab71f3fcf6be706d5fb%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1852407996%22%7D" expand=1]

I mean, they sit at your feet, waiting patiently, giving you that famous "puppy dog eyes" look. How could you say no to that?!

5. When you are at a party and there is a dog there, you pretty much just follow it from room to room:[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F10%2F14%2F6361208117984502411402521395_giphy-2.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=172&h=c9b876f9a660e0b93dd410bac93d9a92bcd6d7d5a509d439baf355b9fd3d2d90&size=980x&c=3819947782 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F10%252F14%252F6361208117984502411402521395_giphy-2.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D172%26h%3Dc9b876f9a660e0b93dd410bac93d9a92bcd6d7d5a509d439baf355b9fd3d2d90%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3819947782%22%7D" expand=1]

Yeah, parties are fun and all, but dogs are better. If there is a dog at a party, nothing else matters. Nothing will pull me away from that dog. Ever.

6. When your friend has a dog, you will go over to their house and just sit there playing with their dogs:

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F10%2F14%2F636120813036009825-1553582352_wOOi0az.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=462&h=58fcbeb16ecdb7097385d782c2655f274584fdb4b0454a4ccb682309032a021b&size=980x&c=563641221 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F10%252F14%252F636120813036009825-1553582352_wOOi0az.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D462%26h%3D58fcbeb16ecdb7097385d782c2655f274584fdb4b0454a4ccb682309032a021b%26size%3D980x%26c%3D563641221%22%7D" expand=1]

When you are just hanging out, watching TV at your friend's house, why not sit on the floor and cuddle with their dog? You could stay there for hours and just sit on that floor doing nothing. As long as there is a dog there, you're good.

7. When your friends ask you to dog-sit their pets while they are gone, you have no problem with doing so. It is honestly a privilege:[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F10%2F14%2F6361208150103989211234488657_wpid-wp-1437122617046.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=972&h=21452f78af1950f1690142338f48a5c806459f1aab8663f19d6786d9b04fb9d5&size=980x&c=775098662 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F10%252F14%252F6361208150103989211234488657_wpid-wp-1437122617046.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D972%26h%3D21452f78af1950f1690142338f48a5c806459f1aab8663f19d6786d9b04fb9d5%26size%3D980x%26c%3D775098662%22%7D" expand=1]

They don't even have to pay you. Going over and playing with a dog is a reward enough in itself. It is everything you could ever ask for and more.

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

No one prepares you for the honeymoon phase wearing off

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

Let's start off with the simple fact that God made everyone differently. That statement could not be more evident. We try to embrace our differences and set ourselves apart from the rest of the world. What that doesn't prepare us for is when we yearn for a characteristic of someone else. For example, have you ever met someone who can experience this great heart ache and hardly shed a tear? This person just had their heart ripped out and they find a way to carry themselves through it with great composure. Well, not all of us have that desirable trait. Some of us wear our hearts on our wet sleeves. When a person has their heart on their sleeve, it can be viewed as a good thing, that the individual isn't shallow. However,

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.
