How You Know Your Dog's Your Soulmate

How You Know Your Dog's Your Soulmate

Happiness is a warm pup.

Dog is man's (or woman's) best friend. Sometimes it's hard to believe that we have been lucky enough to be blessed with these magical creatures.They are a constant source of happiness and love. Dog owners know soulmates are real, because our dogs are our soulmates.

1. You miss your dog when you're away.

Sure you miss your family, friends and comfy bed, but there's nothing you miss more than your pup.

2. You love waking up with your pup.

And you wonder how people don't allow their dog to sleep on their bed with them, because there is nothing better than waking up next to a dog.

3. You both get so excited when you reunite.

Whether you're a part two hours or two months, you're both so excited when you reunite again.

4. They're a source of comfort for you (and vice versa).

When your dog is scared of thunder or is stressed out at the vet, you're there for them. And when you're stressed about school or upset over a situation, your dog is there for you.

5. You want to take your pup everywhere with you.

"Do you want to come to college with me?" - me, asking my dog every time I go back to college.

6. You're happiest when cuddling your dog.

Happiness is a warm dog, and nothing is more therapeutic than cuddling with your dog.

7. You think they're the prettiest/most handsome dog in the world.

And you get personally offended if someone doesn't agree that your dog is perfect.

8. You can't stay mad at him/her.

Even when they chew your retainer three times in 6 months, even when they get into the trash, even when they bark at shadows at 3 a.m. you can't stay mad long.

9. Your whole social media is dedicated to your pup.

And you may even have an entirely separate media account just for your dog, so everyone can see how perfect and cute they are.

10. You refused to get up if they're on your lap.

You don't want to disturb them. You will die sitting there if you have to.

11. You hope to find someone who loves you half as much as your dog does.

If you marry someone who loves you even a fraction as much as your dog does, you will be lucky.

12. You can't imagine life without them.

You don't even know how you survived all those years without your dog in the first place. You thank your lucky stars everyday that your pup found you and you found your pup.

8 Reasons Why My Dad Is the Most Important Man In My Life

Forever my number one guy.

Growing up, there's been one consistent man I can always count on, my father. In any aspect of my life, my dad has always been there, showing me unconditional love and respect every day. No matter what, I know that my dad will always be the most important man in my life for many reasons.

1. He has always been there.

Literally. From the day I was born until today, I have never not been able to count on my dad to be there for me, uplift me and be the best dad he can be.

2. He learned to adapt and suffer through girly trends to make me happy.

I'm sure when my dad was younger and pictured his future, he didn't think about the Barbie pretend pageants, dressing up as a princess, perfecting my pigtails and enduring other countless girly events. My dad never turned me down when I wanted to play a game, no matter what and was always willing to help me pick out cute outfits and do my hair before preschool.

3. He sends the cutest texts.

Random text messages since I have gotten my own cell phone have always come my way from my dad. Those randoms "I love you so much" and "I am so proud of you" never fail to make me smile, and I can always count on my dad for an adorable text message when I'm feeling down.

4. He taught me how to be brave.

When I needed to learn how to swim, he threw me in the pool. When I needed to learn how to ride a bike, he went alongside me and made sure I didn't fall too badly. When I needed to learn how to drive, he was there next to me, making sure I didn't crash.

5. He encourages me to best the best I can be.

My dad sees the best in me, no matter how much I fail. He's always there to support me and turn my failures into successes. He can sit on the phone with me for hours, talking future career stuff and listening to me lay out my future plans and goals. He wants the absolute best for me, and no is never an option, he is always willing to do whatever it takes to get me where I need to be.

6. He gets sentimental way too often, but it's cute.

Whether you're sitting down at the kitchen table, reminiscing about your childhood, or that one song comes on that your dad insists you will dance to together on your wedding day, your dad's emotions often come out in the cutest possible way, forever reminding you how loved you are.

7. He supports you, emotionally and financially.

Need to vent about a guy in your life that isn't treating you well? My dad is there. Need some extra cash to help fund spring break? He's there for that, too.

8. He shows me how I should be treated.

Yes, my dad treats me like a princess, and I don't expect every guy I meet to wait on me hand and foot, but I do expect respect, and that's exactly what my dad showed I deserve. From the way he loves, admires, and respects me, he shows me that there are guys out there who will one day come along and treat me like that. My dad always advises me to not put up with less than I deserve and assures me that the right guy will come along one day.

For these reasons and more, my dad will forever be my No. 1 man. I love you!

The Old Oak Tree

A short poem about returning to one's childhood home.


Looming over the burned-out house is an oak tree,

Hundreds of years old at least.

The smell of smoke is gone, but skeleton of the house remains,

A mere speck when compared to the tree.

Whose branches reach out to me like hands,

Begging for me to come closer.

I do.

I sit under the tree like I did when I was young.

The ground is damp from the rain,

I feel the sogginess soaking through my jeans.

I remain.

It is cooler under the branches,

A limitless amount of leaves shades me from the daylight.

I stay there. All day.

Staring at the charred remains of my childhood home.

I stay there until fog begins to form in the crisp night air,

Cold and sharp against my cheeks.

No longer able to withstand the cold, I take my leave looking back once more.

It's nice to know that even when I'm gone,

The old oak tree remains.
