Five Things Your Dog Needs to Survive This Holiday Season

Dogs love the holidays- they just love them. The table scraps are quality. There are a lot more hands to pet and rub and love on them during the day. There is SO MUCH STUFF to look at and smell and tear up and chew on- it's fabulous. Since becoming a dog owner, I have found that there are a few essential items that a dog needs in order to survive the holiday season. We all know that they require a little extra food and water to stay healthy amidst the frigid temperatures, but there are other things as well. These next five items are certainly necessary to make your dog comfortable this holiday season.

1. A warm sweater

This applies primarily to smaller, indoor pups who may not be able to withstand the chilly temps for very long periods of time. It is really important that the sweater be absolutely adorable to get the full effect.

2. A comfortable bed

When you're away all day, your small friend needs a cozy place to chill. Find a bed with plenty of fluff and the necessary cool factor for all their cold-weather lounging needs.

3. Car hammock

Chances are you're going to be doing a lot of traveling this holiday season with the ol' hound. If your dog sheds or gets anxious in the car, this car hammock may be a good fit. It protects your seats from shedding and provides a comfortable napping spot at the same time.

4. Holiday-themed dog toy(s)

Your four-legged pal has needs, and these needs include stuffed reindeer and candy cane bones.

5. A BarkBox Subscription

This is what dreams are made of folks. It's a monthly subscription box for your pupper that includes toys, treats and fun doggy accessories. This is the perfect gift for your dog that he can enjoy all year long.

Baby boomers and older generations are constantly referring to millennials as entitled. Constantly claiming that we have been babied and handed everything; we lack morals and work ethic. We are unable to hold conversations because we don't know how to pull ourselves away from a screen, and we are self-absorbed. In reality, some of this may be true. But you made us this way.

Tinder, JDate, Plenty of Fish, OKCupid, Chemistry.com, Match, Zoosk — just a few of the names of big companies that promise to get you a date/potential partner. I’m not going to sit here and pretend like I haven’t tried all of these options, because I have. I haven’t been on a date in over a year and I haven’t actually dated anyone in almost two and a half years. Now, I won’t lie, I’m not the prettiest color in the box, but aside from that, I do have plenty to offer. I have a brain that I use on the daily, I’m pretty freaking smart and I’ve been told that I’m funny in the form of my total sarcasm. But alas, this isn’t a personals ad hoping that someone out there will see this and start sending me emails (but hey, if that happens, that’s OK too).

Chuck And Blair, Blair And Chuck

Why our favorite Gossip Girl couple should not be our relationship goals.

I love Gossip Girl as much as the next person. There is nothing better after a long day than curling up in bed and submerging myself in everything that the Upper East Side and all of it's drama is. Over the course of the seasons I fell in love with the characters, particularly Blair Waldorf and Chuck Bass. When I first watched the show I idealized the two of them. They were my relationship "goals" and I wanted everything that they had. However, as I went back and watched the show again some time later, after I had had a few years of experience with relationships, I realized that they are most definitely NOT my relationship goals. And they should not be anybody's.
