Forget diamonds, dogs are a girl's real best friend and the ultimate best friend at that. They're cuddly, cute, and they don't talk back. What better deal could you ask for??
The only problem is when you have to leave them behind when you go to college. All you can do is hope they understand it's to make a better life for the two of you, but it's equally hard on both of you.
So, I've compiled a list of things only dog moms forced to leave their dog babies behind when they go to college could ever understand:
1. Not having someone to cuddle up with at all times
There is nothing, I repeat nothing, more satisfying than a furry little puppy sitting on your lap while you binge watch Netflix, or study, or anything
2. Counting down the days to when you get to see them next
If humans had a tail yours would be wagging just as fast as their's does when the two of you are finally reunited.
3. Constantly trying to formulate a plan to smuggle them back to school with you
The only thing better than seeing them after a long time away would be tail-wagging worthy greetings every time you come home.
4. Showing off pictures of them like the proud dog mom you are
Meeting new people is the best because it means showing new people the albums full of adorable puppy pictures that your friends are tired of seeing
5. The strong inner conflict on whether you should just drop out and be a stay-at-home dog mom
I know this can't just be a me problem?
6. Facetiming your family solely for them to show you the dog
Sometimes the countdown to your next encounter is just too long
7. Nearly tearing up every time you see someone with their dog
It's just not fair.
8. Purposely going places to run into dogs
You're a repeat offender at Pet Smart solely going to check out the dogs that also hang out there, and the workers are starting to catch on that you're more or less loitering and definitely not there to buy.
9. Petting other peoples' dogs for way to long
Sorry, nothing to see here just trying to FILL THE DOG SIZED HOLE IN MY HEART
10. Nearly crying every time you have to leave themThe only thing that helps is that countdown you made.
Think we can all collectively agree life is ruff when you're not with your pupper 24/7
