17 Reasons Why Your Dog Is Your One, True Homie
Samantha Ziganto

Let's be real, you do everything with your dog. You know you do. I do, too. I love my dog more than I love anything. So, if you're like me, then you know exactly what I'm talking about.

1. He lets me choose what show to watch

Even if he doesn't like my shows, he still sits there and watches with me. A trooper.

2. He sleeps with me

I love taking naps with my puppy. I know he's not the biggest fan of laying with me, but he usually just sucks it up.

3. He is always excited to see me

Every time I come through the door, he cries as if he hasn't seen me in years. He jumps and runs to go get a toy to show me and it's my favorite thing, especially when I come home from school.

4. He protects me

When we leave doors open in our house to let cool air in, he sits at the door and watches the people that walk by to make sure they don't start to walk up the driveway.

5. He doesn't talk back

I get mad at him occasionally, like, when he rolls in poop or doesn't listen. But, he doesn't talk back ever. Not a single bark from my dog.

6. He keeps my secrets

I tell my dog everything because he's trustworthy. Why? Because he can't tell anyone what I told him. HAHA!

7. He is my personal vacuum

He loves this part just as much as I do. He loves to watch me cook and wait for me to drop food — on accident and on purpose.

8. He gets coffee with me

I get coffee a lot AND he always wants to come. He's so good in the car that whenever we head to Starbucks, we get a puppaccino too.

9. He's easy to please

As I said, he loves going in the car so whenever I have to run errands he comes with and he loves it. And, it's perfect because he's in a good mood for the rest of the day.

10. He loves my back scratches

He loves when I rub his belly and his back. His favorite is when I grab his brush to get all his fur off of him, so he doesn't shed as much in the house.

11. He doesn't care what I look like

He loves me at my best and my worst. He's seen me in both states more than once.

12. He always comforts me

He can read me like a book. He knows when I'm sad and always does exactly what he's doing in this picture. If he can't lay in my lap, he leans on me with his head in my face.

13. He makes me feel better when I'm sick

He sleeps next to my bed all day when I'm sick. He doesn't like when I don't leave my bed, so he just lays with me until I'm ready to get up.

14. He exercises with me

We go on walks all the time, and he's a very speedy walker. If we're not walking, we're running around in the backyard with a soccer ball until he's had enough.

15. He loves my friends

He greets my friends with jumps, licks, and loves being around everyone. He likes being the center of attention, especially when other people are over.

16. He's fun and entertaining

He cracks me up. He's just so goofy and unique. He has such a big personality but has the sweetest heart. He loves us very much and so do we.

17. He loves me always

He shows me unconditionally love. He doesn't judge or get mad — he's always there.

Bottom line: my dog is my best friend. If yours isn't, well, good luck, Charlie!

Preview These Top Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 Picks — From Luxury Purses To Skincare

Currently 3 million people viewing the Stella McCartney purse I absolutely must have.

Online shopping has been a guilty pleasure of ours for years, but now more than ever it's been a shopping lover's outlet for all our home redecorating projects and resort wear we're purchasing for that trip we had to cancel.

One of my favorite places to (virtually) window shop has always been Nordstrom. I admittedly can't afford to go on sprees there often, but I still get a high off of adding things to my cart I know I'll never actually end up buying. But sometimes, that's not enough — that's when I, like the masses of luxury-, beauty-, fashion-, and decor-lovers around the world count the days down to the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

I Recommend This $85 POC-Founded Hair Brush To Everyone — Here's Why It's Worth EVERY Penny

It replaces nearly three steps in my hair routine.

- Though as a little girl, I had the silkiest, softest hair that would get compliments everywhere I went, since I turned about thirteen I've since had coarse, dry hair no amount of deep conditioning masks or sulfate-free shampoo could fix.

- I started using the Raincry's Condition Boar Bristle Brush several months ago, and while I noticed that my hair had been softer, silkier, and shinier than it had ever been, I didn't make the connection because I never thought a simple hairbrush could make any difference in my hair texture.

- I will be the first to admit that I thought it was ridiculous to spend nearly a hundred dollars on a hairbrush, but this one eliminates the need for me to use any heat tools or styling products on it.

- I put some oil or a serum in my hair when it's wet, brush my hair with the boar bristle brush once it's dry, and end up with the lowest maintenance, shiniest hair I've had since I was 8 years old.

What Your Favorite Rom-Com Says About You And Your Dream Guy

These movies are always there for us when we need them.

YouTube

Bingeing a romantic comedy is always a good idea, and during this pandemic, these movies bring us one of the only elements of romance we can get. Through all the break-ups, obstacles, and struggles in our love lives, romantic comedies have always been there to make us laugh and keep us company while we cry.

While we love these movies for the beyond gorgeous male love interests, the female protagonists are still the ones we always remember. Although rom-coms are far from reality, it is always fun to imagine what our life would be like if a cinematic studio was behind our love life. So what does your favorite romantic comedies say about your dream guy?

Everything You Need To Know About Macronutrients, Because A Diet Should Be More Than Calories

Pay attention to what you're eating, not just how much you're eating.

Plenty of people are familiar with the "calories in, calories out" (CICO) method of dieting which can be used for losing, gaining, or maintaining weight. This method relies on calculating a person's total daily energy expenditure (TDEE) to ensure that they are not overeating or undereating to achieve their desired weight. TDEE considers a person's height, weight, age, gender, and level of activity to determine what their caloric intake should be — some calculators can factor in body fat percentage as well. When I used a TDEE calculator online, it said that my TDEE would be 1,990 calories if I was trying to maintain my weight, but are all calories created equal? I'd argue that they're not.

It might seem obvious to some of you that 1,990 calories of macaroni and cheese are not healthy at all compared to 1,990 calories of varied foods (fruit, veggies, meat, bread, etc.).
