When you realize you don't get to see your dog for at least another month:
Mom, Dad, I expect constant pictures and updates.
When you hear the words "I'm more of a cat person."
When you see your first random puppy walking around on campus.
LET ME LOVE YOU!!!
When you go to pat a dog and it completely ignores you.
"I didn't want to pat you anyway...please come back."
"Can I pat your dog?" "Sorry, he doesn't really like people."
"I saw the cutest puppy. I was going to tell you to come see but I forgot."
"NEW PUPPY ON CAMPUS!!!"
Hearing a collar jingle from around the corner and waiting for anticipated dog to appear.
When said jingle turns out to just be someone's keys.
I'm not even going to try to hide my disappointment.
When someone casually brings up how cute your dog is.
Putting on your best "please" face to ask, "Can I pet your dog?"
The rest of my day relies on your answer to this question, dog owner.
When you finally get to see your dog again.
