11 Reminders For Anyone Having A Ruff Time Leaving Their Dog

Here's some PAWSitively fantastic advice for you!

11 Reminders For Anyone Having A Ruff Time Leaving Their Dog
Kayla Quinn

College season has started once again, and after a summer full of your dog, it's time to leave them behind for the semester. But, fear not! Here's 11 reminders you need to hear when you have to leave your dog behind:

1. Every time you leave your dog will be difficult

It doesn't matter if it's the first time or the dozenth time: having to leave your furry friend behind is never easy for either of you.

2. You have plenty of pictures 

As any dog owner knows, there are albums dedicated to your dog alone on your phone. Although the picture doesn't compare to the real thing, you can show off all you want to everyone. 2

3. Your dog is getting plenty of love

My mom likes to say that Zander is in fact HER dog, and not the family dog. I know he's getting as much love from her as he did from me over the summer, and that's a really comforting thought.

4. You are so lucky to have your dog, and vice versa

Kayla Quinn

Your bond with your dog won't go away with distance, I promise.

5. You aren't leaving forever 

You know you'll be back with your dog in no time at all.

6. FaceTime does exist

If you miss your dog, just call home and put the dog on. You know you want to.

7. Your dog still loves you 

Your dog is, if we're being honest, your number one fan. No ifs, ands, or buts.

8. You are most definitely on your dog's mind 

Your dog is thinking about you and missing you just as much as you're missing them.

9. Your dog believes in you 

Hey, if you're ever having a bad day, just remember your number one fan.

10. You have all school breaks with your dog

Kayla Quinn

Breaks will fly by, sure, but at least you get to spend them all with your dog!

11. Your dog will be waiting for you whenever you come back home

Kayla Quinn

It doesn't matter how long you're away, your dog will always be happy to welcome you home.

Goodbye's are never easy, but they aren't forever! Good luck this semester.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?


If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
