I Have More Photos Of My Dog On My Phone Than Anyone Else And I Am Perfectly Fine With That

I Have More Photos Of My Dog On My Phone Than People And I Am Perfectly Fine With That

Dogs are better than people.


First things first, my dog is my best friend.

This may seem weird, but fellow dog owners that know the joys of companionship understand this. I have other friends. Human friends. But honestly, I would rather spend time hanging out with my dog. With all our good times together, there is bound to be an abundance of photos.

Having the 100's of photo's of my dog, Millie, on my phone makes bad days better. Since I am going to college in another state, I do not get the luxury of living with my dog at the moment. Apart from the rare FaceTime calls with her that I painfully put my dad through, these photo's of her are all that I have. That might be a good thing, it might not be the brightest idea for a 20-year-old to be caring for a dog on a budget but that does not mean I do not miss her.

Am I feeling sad? Look at pictures of my pup. Happy? More pictures. Do I miss my dog? Then that is the best way to cope! Looking at pictures of your dog will always make you feel better and ensures happiness all around. All dogs make everyday life special and anyone who has a furry friend of their own understands that!

Yes, I have photos of my friends and the places I travel to. Of course! I want to cherish those memories and I have a lot of photos from them. But I have more pictures of my dogs because who else is going to be that cute? Nobody! Even when I have had a boyfriend in the past, there was still more pictures of my dog. I wish there was even more than there is honestly.

I mean, what do dogs do that is not cute enough for a photoshoot? I have pictures of my dog sleeping, running, walking, eating, playing, cuddling, and the list goes on and on. Some pictures are beautifully posed and others are just derpy.

Dogs are a gift we do not deserve.

I think everyone should give their pupperoni's an extra hug and kiss today while taking a cute photo of/with them. Having plenty of pictures of them is so important because unlike friends or family, they on this earth for a short amount of time (sad, I know). We have to cherish the 10, give or take, years we get with them on earth. I want my kids to remember their first dog and have pictures with them to cherish for the rest of their life. I want to remember the dog I have now in 30 years when I am in a different season of life, possibly with a new dog.

Having more photos of my dog than anyone else is a blessing, not a curse. When people forsake me, my dog is always there. Having these photo's will be the memories of my baby that I will have forever.

To Whoever Adopts The Dog I Had To Give Up

To whom it may concern...


I begged and begged to get that beautiful dog. The moment I laid my eyes on her I gasped from how cute and beautiful she was. She was so sweet to my parents and I that we took her home with us that same day. I truly fell in love with her instantly. She slept right in my bed with me that first night and I could tell I was getting attached very quickly. That is what makes this hurt the most.

Stevie, or whatever your name may be in the future, just know that I loved every single second spent with you. I know our time together was so short, but that small amount of time made a wonderful impact on me. Those big beautiful brown eyes warmed by heart so much. Even though you woke me up early to go to the bathroom, I didn't care. That just meant more time we could spend together. I am sorry that I was not able to provide you the life you deserved. It's not your fault that you're the way you are in certain situations. You are a perfect dog and I want you to know that and I want you to know that you will always have a special place in my heart.

The lucky person who gets to have that beautiful girl in their life, whoever you are I am so happy you're doing what you're doing. We had done everything we could manage, but our community was just not right for her. I hope wherever you are you have amazing neighbors like we did that are supportive of everything that happens. If you don't, that's okay because that means Stevie ended up at an even better place. Somewhere she can run around at without a leash and doesn't have other dogs interfering with her territory. I was devastated to let her go. I didn't want to, but it was becoming the only option. I cried a lot, but Stevie doesn't deserve to be in stressful situations like she was when I had her.

I just want to thank you for taking her in. Thank you for caring for her and hopefully giving her the amazing life that she deserves. She is a spunky little girl, but she is as sweet as can be. Tell her that I love her and miss her.
