6 Signs That Your Dog Is Obsessed With You And Loves You Unconditionally

It doesn't matter how many times you accidentally step on their paws.

Jamie Street

I think Odyssey is a safe space where we can express our opinions without judgment. That being established, I would like as all to admit that dogs are clearly the greatest animal, sent down to earth from whatever entity you believe in to enrich our lives and provide us with happiness. Clearly, I am a dog person.

Humans and dogs have been connected for hundreds of years, and that relationship does not seem to be changing anytime soon. Throughout my entire childhood, my family had a four-legged creature running around the house waging their tail fast enough to generate wind energy. Their happy go lucky energy makes every member in my family laugh and their spirited personality makes anyone who walks through our front door fall endlessly in love with them.

Dogs see the best in people, loving us unconditionally no matter how many times we accidentally step on their paws. Despite all our weaknesses, our dogs seem to think the sun rises and sets with us. We should all strive to be the great person our dog thinks we are. The excitement they display when we come home demonstrates that they have us put on a pedestal, but I have them on one, too.

1. They snuggle with you.


What could possibly be better than having a fluffy ball of love laying down next to you? Whether I am in bed or sunbathing outside my two dogs will saddle right next to me, keeping me company. It is common knowledge that snuggling is a sign of affection and dogs should cuddle us.

2. The tail never stops moving.


Our family dog Winnie would have a horrible poker face if she was a human. Whenever she gets excited or happy, her tail moves faster than a hummingbird (slight exaggeration). You can hear her tail thumping from the other room, and if she is standing up than her entire butt moves, and she will turn around in happy little circles. There is little to nothing that is cuter than that. This action is a definitive sign your dog loves you.

3. They lick your face.


Come on, this is an obvious one, right? Your dog is telling you they love you by kissing you. One of my dogs Cleo does not understand the concept of personal space. I will be minding my own business reading or on my cell phone and suddenly there is a 4-pound poodle in my lap licking my face and sniffing me. If I ever needed physical proof my dog loves you, that's it.

4. They are loyal to a fault.


Dogs can range in all sorts of sizes. All of my dogs have been fairly small teacup poodles, but they do not let their size deter them from protecting us. The phrase "their bark is worse than their bite" was created for dogs like mine. Whenever a dog passes by my house, my two tiny poodles feel the need to defend and protect us, barking as enough for all the neighborhood dogs to hear. And their response is nothing in comparison to the reaction is someone rings our doorbell.

5. They nurse you back to health.


Whenever I am sick, my dogs do not leave my side. I am clearly not the only person this has happened to. If my mom is sick, the dogs are right next to her. Not to mention, if any of my mom's patients stop by the house, the dogs seem to think they are nurses, aiding my mother in her practice.

6. They go crazy when you get home.


It doesn't matter if you were gone for a minute, an hour or several days; the moment you return home your dogs are overcome with excitement. When my dad comes home, Winnie shrieks and talks like she is telling him all about what happened during her day. It is so reassuring to come home after a long day and see our dogs grateful for us to be back.

Dogs do not see our faults or our weaknesses. They see the best in us and sometimes remind us of what we are truly capable. The love us no matter what and remind us to see the good in people. Dogs are angels sent from heaven.

In our patriarchal society, men hide from their feelings, but toxic masculinity is literally killing men. They swallow the pain and move on so that they can look, feel, and act "tough."

But, strength is derived from asking for help and voicing your struggle and, trust me, working on your mental health is one hell of a struggle. The real way to "man up" is to acknowledge the downfalls in unjust societal norms. Mental health problems do not mean that a man is weak, they are neurologically-based disorders that require professional treatment.

Sorry, But 'I Don’t Care About Politics' Is Not A Valid Excuse For NOT Voting

The younger generation of voters is so crucial to the upcoming election because our vote is going to shape the world that we are about to enter as adults.


When I ask my friends if they are voting this term most of them respond with "no" followed by an explanation of "I don't care enough," "It doesn't affect me," or "I don't keep up with politics," etc. I get it, as a college student I know that there are many other things to be concerned about like school, relationships, work, and friends. I also understand that keeping up with politics can seem like trying to keep up with an over-exaggerated reality show that has way too many seasons. Not to mention most news stations and websites are biased so it's hard to decipher if what you hear is true or fake.

However, despite all of this annoyance, as the next generation of Americans, we have to remember that we owe it to ourselves, our families, and to our futures to care.

Two of my favorite things in life are reading and books. Obviously, they go hand-in-hand. In my life, I've realized that there is nothing better than learning about the current world or getting fully immersed in another world. Reading can inspire, teach, and entertain you.

For me, the feeling of opening a book and smelling that fresh book smell can't compete with anything else.

20 Books About Latin And Hispanic Heritage Absolutely Everyone Should Have On Their Bookshelf

Any ally of the community needs to be reading these incredible reads.


I go through phases when it comes to what I like to read. I am typically reading two books at any given time: one serious nonfiction and one escapist fiction novel to have on hand and open up depending on my mood.

What remains consistent, however, amongst most of my fellow bibliophiles is a desire to try new and different authors and genres. I, as an Indian woman, have been partial to reading books written by fellow Indian and Desi writers since I first got a library card.

I Asked 46 Women What They Thought About The Term 'Plus-Size', And Here's What They Had To Say

It's 2020, where change is inevitable and norms are not only questioned, but challenged.


We live in a world where it's become customary to push boundaries, break rules, and question standards upheld by society. Though try as we might, some of these standards are harder to conquer than others — body image is one of the top contenders.

For years, the body positivity movement has pushed for the acceptance of all marginalized body types not represented or celebrated in the media. Recently, we've gotten better at appreciating and accepting all body types, but one thing that's still lingering is the stigma of body image in the fashion industry — more specifically, the term "plus-size."
