Your dog is your ship mate, and that's all there is to it.

10 Things You Know All Too Well When Your Dog Is Your Best Friend Over Any Human In Your Life
Macey Mullins

I've had my dog for over 10 years now. He's my best friend and he has been by my side since day one. I don't know what I would do without him (Bisket.) He is a Jack Russell Terrier, all white with little brown spots on his ears. He has been through everything with me. At the end of the day, as long as he's alive and well, it's chalked up as a good day.

1. You want to buy them the best dog food out there. 

$50.00 for a bag of food? Fine, as long as your dog likes it, right? You'll also research whats in the dog food, so that you know it's safe.

2. You have developed a way of communication that doesn't involve speaking. 

You can tell when your dog is acting weird. You have developed a way of communication that relies on movements and "whines." Either way, you both have an understanding of each other.

3. Thinking about your dog passing away someday isn't a thought you can wrap your head around. 

I hate thinking about it, but because my dog is getting old I think about it all the time. I don't know what I'll do without him.

4. No one, and I mean no one, is allowed to treat your dog badly. 

When I say badly, I mean even a harsh voice. They're like your child. When they're upset, you're upset.

5. "The couch belongs to the dog, too. If you don't like it, leave." 

There is no in-between, really. My house is his house, too.

6. You love when other people love your dog. 

When you're out and about, walking your dog, or simply showing off pictures, it makes you proud when people compliment your pup.

7. You would never move anywhere without your dog. 

"Oh, they don't allow dogs here? I'm out." This goes for apartments, parks, beaches, and everywhere in between.

8. You have several photos of your dog on your phone.

They look so cute while they're asleep, how could I pass up this opportunity?

9. You can never have too many dog toys. 

... and you've gotten used to tripping over them when you wake up to go to the bathroom.


You get a feeling of happiness when you give them treats, because it's something they love.

Real dog people are one of a kind, and their dogs are their partner in crime. You eat, sleep, and spend time together every day. They can tell when you are sad, vice versa. You could never ask for a better best friend.

Michigan Rain Vs. California Rain

SO, I've just recently had the fortunate experience to be reminded just how Michigan rains. Now, before you roll your eyes at me, I HAVE EXPERIENCED RAIN (in regards of the the popular joke that Californians haven't). However, I have to agree; after experiencing one of Michigan's thunderstorms (with my college's sirens blaring in the background), it comes to mind just how different "rain" is between the two states:

21 EDM Songs for a Non-EDM Listener

If you have been following me for a long time, then you know I write about two main things: relateable articles and communication media based articles. Now, it is time for me to combine the two. For those of you that don't know, I am a radio DJ at IUP, and I DJ for a show called BPM (Beats Per Minute). It is an EDM, or electronic dance music, based show and I absolutely love it.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
