10 Things Every Dog Owner Does For Their Fur Baby

As a dog owner myself, I am pretty guilty of doing some weird things, but I love my dog like it's a child. We have all talked to our dogs in the high pitched voice and laid on the ground with them to play so I have compiled a list of 10 weird things that every great dog owner does for their sweet fur baby out of total love and affection.

1. Congratulate them for doing a cool trick, listening, or just doing their business outside.

If you're like me and got your dog when they were a puppy you know how awful it was going through the potty training stage so now that they have learned you're glad that their pee is on the bushes outside instead of your brand new shirt, or freshly cleaned carpet. Of course, you have to congratulate them on doing their cool tricks because how cute is it when they do a paw shake or roll over?!!

2. Talking with your dogs and responding to them

We all need someone to talk to every once in awhile, and a dog makes the perfect companion. When we need to cry it out or let out all of our anger your little pup is there whenever you need them. Then, because they can't respond to you it is easy to make a response to them which makes you just feel better in the end.

3. Anytime your dog gets sick you immediately research the web

There is nothing worse in a dog owners life when your little fur baby is not feeling well, and you want to make them feel better as soon as possible so that they can go back to being playful. It is like WebMD except you do it for your dog, and search their symptoms that lead you to think that they are going to die if they don't get better soon.

4. Talking in a funny voice just to see if they do the head tilt

Need I say more? Pretty much every dog owner thinks it's hilarious to see their dog do the famous head tilt after talking to them in the most insane and ridiculous voice.

5. Thought about dressing them up or actually even did

I never did this because my dog cannot stand putting those little dog clothes on, but doesn't mean I haven't thought about dressing her in a cute, little, pink tutu.

6. "Accidentally" pushed table scraps onto the floor or sneak them a piece of bacon

I am 100% guilty of this. This isn't necessarily weird, but something that all dog owners do. Every time I am eating at the kitchen table my dog will sit right by the chair with her big eyes, and give me that look acting like she is so hungry-- I fall for it every single time. How can you say no to their little faces?! If you do end up saying no you might even feel a little guilty inside so then you give them a treat anyway.

7. Taking selfies or pictures of your dog

As dog owners, we always try to get that perfect picture, and you do some ridiculous things to try and do so. Things like saying their name about 20 times, snapping, waving your hands around--essentially how you get a baby to look at the camera except you're dealing with an animal.

8. Pet them with your feet more than your hands

We've all done it.

9. Give your dog nicknames

"Sweetie", "Cutie", "Tawnypoo", "Bellz", and so much more.

10. Refer to yourself as "mommy" or "daddy"

This is completely respectable among dog owners because we totally get it they're your kids. Sayings such as, "Who's the best mommy in the world?" or "You love your daddy".

Exposing Kids To Nature Is The Best Way To Get Their Creative Juices Flowing

Constantly introducing young children to the magical works of nature will further increase the willingness to engage in playful activities as well as broaden their interactions with their peers


Whenever you are feeling low and anxious, just simply GO OUTSIDE and embrace nature! According to a new research study published in Frontiers in Psychology, being connected to nature and physically touching animals and flowers enable children to be happier and altruistic in nature. Not only does nature exert a bountiful force on adults, but it also serves as a therapeutic antidote to children, especially during their developmental years.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
