Why Dogs Are Better Than People

Why Dogs Are Better Than People

“A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than he loves himself.”

Why Dogs Are Better Than People
Emma Sommers

Don’t get me wrong, I love people too. If you know me, you know I have an undying love for canines. I've been this way since I was little. I see a dog and my heart is automatically filled with happiness and love. There’s just some things about my little dog Princess that are unique to her as a dog. It’s why dogs make great pets, family members, and friends. Being home for the summer has allowed me to spend greatly missed time with my dog, and has revealed to me the unique reasons why dogs are at times better than humans.

1. Dogs love you unconditionally.

I don’t think there’s an unconditional love you’ll find quite like a dog’s unconditional love. There’s no better feeling than walking in the door after a particularly long or hard day to your dog, who is always extremely excited to greet you. To you, your pet is just another aspect of your life, but to your dog, you are their entire world. You are their parent and best friend. Their world revolves around you.

2. They are the snuggle buddy you’ve always wanted and needed.

People might not always be down to snuggle, but your fluffy little canine is! Any time of the day you can count on your little pup to give you all of the snuggle and kisses you could ever need.

3. Therapy dogs.

There are dogs with the sole purpose in life of helping and providing service to people. They dedicate their entire lives to being a best friend and helper. There are therapy dogs at the airport for the people who get stressed out about flying or service dogs who help the blind or others with an illness. I don’t think it gets cuter or sweeter than that!

4. Dogs are the ultimate way to feel better when you’re upset.

I’m not sure how, but I feel as if my dog always knows when I need a little extra love. She’ll come and sit on my lap. She’ll give me kisses and snuggle me for as long as I need. Seeing her brown eyes filled with love and her intentions to make me feel better just fills me with happiness.

5. They’re great partners to do whatever with.

Whether it be on a run or a trip into town, they’re great little furry friends to do whatever with! Their company never gets old. Your dog’s excited to do anything with you, as long as it means they get to spend time with their favorite person in the world. They’re the perfect partner for whatever you want to do.

6. Their undying loyalty.

People will come and go in your life, you will have bad days and good days - but your dog is right there through it all. Even after I was gone at school for so long I came home to the same loving dog that I had left. She wasn’t mad at me for leaving, she was just happy that I had returned.

Dogs are the embodiment of undying love and loyalty; the ideal friend and family member. They are truly pure and good animals and I will never stop being excited and filled with love whenever I see a dog - I think the feeling is mutual anyway.

119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

I oftentimes (excessively) use the excuse of my job as a writer to justify my excessive spending habits.

I needed the new Huda Beauty palette before anyone else in the name of journalistic integrity. It was my job to test out the new Francis Kurkdjian fragrance to make sure I could tell people whether or not it was truly worth the splurge (it was).

I remember the days where closet drinking before going to a party or bar was part of the night's itinerary. It was a requirement to have a good buzz flowing before calling the Uber to take you to that bar where you see everyone from your high school at. The pregames were the best part of the night, but it wasn't ever because of the alcohol, it was because of the atmosphere and those who were in it. The number of times I've heard "Wait, why aren't you drinking tonight? C'mon, get drunk with us" is endless, but think about it. Where were you when you were asked that? You were at the goddamn pregame and being there doesn't mean you need to be ripping shots. Being social doesn't require alcohol.

I asked 20 people how they cut back on alcohol while still being social.

Listen, you can do whatever you want with your free time. It's yours to spend and you have free range. However, I hope you recognize that there are a ton of proactive things you can do right now instead of stalking your man's ex – yes, I know you do it becuase we are all guilty of it.

Take this time to research your privilege. There are always new things to learn and ways to deepen your understanding of yourself, this world, and your surroundings. We live in a multi-dimensional, ever-changing society that needs your help and your time. By that, I mean there are so many layers to each and every one of us, and with our physical, mental, spiritual, or emotional selves, we can create real, positive change.

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.
