Why Adopting a Dog is a Bad Idea

Why Adopting a Dog is a Bad Idea
US News Health

Adopting a dog is actually the best idea ever, I just wanted to catch your attention ;) I adopted a puppy about a month ago and it was seriously the best decision ever!

1. Forever have a cuddle buddy

Everyone is always talking about how they wish they had someone to cuddle with. A dog is the perfect match! They will always lay up against you and are less likely to move away because you don't really annoy them like you can a partner.

2. Saving a life

Dogs lose their lives every day, for no reason at all. Humans get tired of taking care of them and choose to neglect and get rid of them whenever they please, not remembering dogs have lives too. Shelters are overflowing and are having to turn away and even euthanize dogs just to make room for more. ugh. so sad.

3. They're THE sweetest dogs

I don't know what it is, but somehow, shelter dogs are the sweetest pups around. They just want to love you, lick you face and play with you all day long. Puppy kisses are some of my fav. You can't not love it.

4. Exercise

Seriously. If you are a good dog parent, which I hope you are, you talk your dog out on walks or runs or if your like me, you even go up and down flights of stairs constantly just to take them outside. Think of all the extra exercise you're getting! And it's not really super annoying. I love taking my puppy to the park and walking her around the trail. It's good for me and her! plus, it's so rewarding when you hit 10,000 steps on your fitbit.

5. Unconditional love

Seriously, no person can match up to the love of a puppy. They don't really get mad at you, they just want to love on you, even when you don't show them so much love, they still love unconditionally. They're a forever companion and shall be cherished as so <3

This is why you should definitely {not} adopt a dog ;)

Holidays With A Small Family

I wouldn't trade what we have for the world.

Matt Johnsn

When I was a kid I always went to my grandparents house whenever we celebrated any sort of holiday. We were a decently sized family and it was always a blessing to be in their house and surrounded by love during the holiday season. However, that all changed when my grandfather passed away and my grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. The family then began to drift apart and life went on, and we ended up all celebrating our own holidays with other family members.
