7 Facts Of Life You Have If You Love Dogs More Than People

7 Facts Of Life You Have If You Love Dogs More Than People

All you need is (puppy) love

Dogs. They're a man's best friend, and everyone knows it. While most people would say they 'love' dogs...there are definitely a select few who REALLY love dogs more than life. Here are a few relatable things that go through a true dog lovers mind every day.

1. Seeing a dog literally makes your day

Whether it be passing by one on the way to class or seeing one across the quad, if you're a true dog lover, just seeing that little wagging tail makes your whole dog. Big or small, old or young, any dog's presence has the ability to make you smile no matter what else is going in your life!

2. You're convinced you have the cutest dog in the world

You appreciate that everyone else is obsessed with their dogs, and while you do love every dog, your dogs are hands down the best and cutest. When someone else says their dogs are the cutest in the world, it takes everything you have not to argue and whip out the 100,000,000 pictures and videos you have saved on your phone to try and convince them otherwise.

3. You love every breed

Literally every type of dog is your favorite dog. It's impossible for you to look at a dog and think it's not super cute, and you kind of hate anyone who calls dogs ugly in general. They're all angels...end of story.

4. You've never seen a dog you don't want to adopt

Have you ever had the urge to pick a random dog up and run away with it? Because if you're a true dog lover, that thought probably goes through your head every time you see a little cutie walking down the sidewalk. If it were up to you, you'd have every dog in the world (and preferably they'd all be potty trained).

5. You get separation anxiety when you have to leave your dogs at home

Being away from your dogs in the hardest thing ever. Whether it be going out for the day, on vacation for a week, or having to go back to school and spend (dreadful) months away from them, leaving your dogs is the worst. On the bright side, coming home and seeing their tails wagging and getting lots of cuddles makes it all worth it!

6. Your camera roll is full of cute dog pictures

You probably have them in an album. And you probably look at the album when you're sad. And it definitely makes you happy.

7. You follow at least 2 dog Instagram accounts

Scrolling through your feed and seeing videos or pictures of what your favorite furry friends are up to is the most pure experience in the world. If we're being honest you're probably slightly too invested in the lives of these adorable internet dog (who, by the way, have WAY more followers than you ever will), but who cares. They're too cute not to obsesses over!

If even the thought of dogs makes you smile, and you do everything on this list, you definitely are a true dog lover. Now, who else is craving some puppy love right now!?

An Open Letter To My Dog In Heaven

You're so incredibly loved and missed.

You have been there every day for so long. I woke up and went to bed every day knowing you were there and would still be there when I awoke the next morning. You never failed to greet me with an ecstatic wagging tail and an adorable toothy smile whenever I walked into the room. I missed you every single second that we weren't together. We have been the best of friends since the day we met, and our bond has only strengthen throughout the years.

However, as I grew older, so did you. As I was able to do more, you were able to do less. I was able to drive, go to the movies on my own, and apply to college. But you, you couldn't jump as high anymore, you couldn't run as fast as you used to, you couldn't swim as much as you would have liked. Even when your abilities declined, you still remained the happiest pup I had ever met and would continue to always try your hardest to make me happy.

Then the day came. That dreadful, dreadful day. The day where I had to watch you take your last breath as I laid by your side, the day where I had to watch the vet take away the best friend that I had ever known. As horrible as that moment was, and as sad as I still am, I am at peace.

I am at peace because I know that you are in a much, much better place. I know that as soon as you took your last breath here on Earth, God swept your beautiful, innocent soul from the ground and flew you to Heaven. I know that you have gained your furry little wings that you so rightfully deserve, and I am proud that I was able to know and love such an amazing little angel as you.

As I am still here on Earth, I can't say that I know what Heaven above is like for you, but I hope that you are truly having the time of your life. I hope that you are surrounded by perfectly green meadows filled with colorful flowers and blanketed by the bluest skies and the brightest rays of sunshine. I hope that you have hundreds of different lakes, ponds, streams, and even oceans to swim in as much as your sweet little heart pleases. I hope that you have already met with all of our relatives up there and that they give you endless treats and belly rubs, since I no longer can. I hope that all of your pain and suffering has vanished, allowing you to be the young, energetic pup that you once were and have been longing to be for so long now.

Even though we are no longer physically together anymore, you will forever remain in my heart and soul. You were a blessing sent from above, and now, God needs you back. Thank you for completing me and teaching me important life lessons; I will carry you with me everywhere I go until we meet again. I love you, my guardian angel.

Every Household Needs A Dog

Dog lovers have got it right.


Whether it's 101 Dalmatians or a St. Bernard named Beethoven, every household needs a dog. Forget cats, fish, and hamsters! They have their perks but nothing beats a dog. I mean look at that face!


Here are eight reasons dogs are a must:

1. They are great with kids


When trained properly, dogs make great playmates for kids. They give children the opportunity to develop and interact with the natural world around them.

2. They are protective


From the smallest pup to the largest dog, all dogs will protect your home from any danger. Whether it is from a lizard that crept in or a burglar, your dog will alarm you of any unwanted guests.

3. They make great companions


Dogs have a great intuition to tell if you are feeling down. They are readily there to offer comfort. Dogs also are always ready to celebrate with you. They jump even at the simple act of you coming home.

4. They love to cuddle


Cold nights watching Netflix just got 100 times better with your furry friend. They will even cover your eyes during the scary parts of the movie.

5. They make you laugh


Dogs have their own sense of humor that is incomparable to any other. With simply chasing their tails, you can be entertained for hours.

6. They bring you gifts


Dogs are generous by nature. They see your shoes on the ground, they will bring them to you. They see a cool stick, they'll want you to see it too.

7. They are loyal


I've never seen a service cat. But I sure have seen a service dog. Dogs are loyal and obedient. Once you fall for each other, they never leave your side.

8. They are adorable


Finally, dogs are just so darn cute! How can you say no to loving them!!

Dogs are the best! You can have other pets, but a dog is a must.
