I don't think I'll ever be capable of loving anyone more than I love my dog. It's an obsession that I'm not afraid to share. Spending time with my precious pride and joy that I call my canine friend, I continuously think, "What if you could understand me when I talk to you?" What would I say? What would I continue to say to you that I already tell you already? You might not understand me, my pup, but if you could, boy would you get an ear full.

1. Do you know how much I love you? Like I REALLY love you.

2. Please, just look when I'm trying to take a selfie with you. It's really not that hard.

3. I'll only be gone for two hours, I swear I'll come back soon. Stop looking at me like that.

4. You just ate, how are you STILL hungry?

5. Why don't you like to cuddle? I don't understand.

6. I think you're the prettiest/cutest thing I've ever seen. Do you know that?

7. Oh my god, did you seriously just eat that? Ew.

8. I AM SO SORRY I STEPPED ON YOUR PAW! I DIDN'T MEAN TO, I SWEAR! PLEASE FORGIVE ME!

9. No, this is chocolate. You can't have that.

10. It's 3 a.m., now you want to play?

11. It's raining and I have no pants on. Hurry up and go to the bathroom before the neighbors see me.

12. I wish you could talk back to me.

13. I wonder what your voice would sound like.

14. Never die, okay. EVER.

15. Alright, pretend you didn't just see me do that.

16. I'm not drinking alone if you're home, right?

17. I wish I could text you when I'm not at home with you.

18. Ugh, you know I would give you more food, but you'll get fat.

19. Can you go back to being a puppy for just like fifteen minutes? You were so cute.

20. Why do you hate the mailman? I thought that was something you only see in the movies?

21. I'm not cheating on you. I pet that dog for 2 minutes, but I'm home now.

22. I can never have enough pictures of you.

23. That's the TV, stop barking.

24. Can I just take you with me to work?

25. I can't wait to dress you up in outfits that you hate.

26. I literally don't deserve you.

27. What was your nightmare about?

28. How do you shed SO much? I don't understand how you still have hair left on your body.

29. Alright, stop making me think that someone's in the house. What are you barking at?

30. You're like my best friend, you know that.

Just Because I Got My Dog From A Breeder Doesn't Give You The Right To Adopt Judgment

My Sper is my life

You always hear the saying, "adopt don't shop."

Which means adopt your dog from an animal shelter and don't pay for one. But what happens when one does buy their dog. Does it make them any less of a pet owner? The answer should be no, but it varies depending on who you ask. Just because some of us buy our dogs from breeders or shops, it does not mean that we are any less of a pet owner than those who adopt. We don't love our dogs any less and we for sure don't have any less of a bond with our animals.

I got my dog from a breeder and she is the best thing that I have ever gotten.

I did just as much research as any potential dog owner would. I even checked out the local shelters, but there were no daschunds. I knew exactly the dog I wanted and I wasn't going to change my mind, this is why I went with the breeder. The breed that I was going to get just wasn't in the shelters and when there was any even inkling about one, well it would be gone within the hour. But I had people make remarks to me because I got my dog from a breeder. "Well I guess you signed a dog's death sentence" this was a comment that someone actually said to me. Dogs from breeders and shops need owners too, they deserve just as much love as the rescue dogs. Why should I be branded a bad pet owner because I chose to go a different route than another. I respect those who rescue dogs more than they'll ever know, they deserve that respect. If I had wanted a different breed than maybe I would've found my perfect dog in the one of the shelters.

We need to change the way that we see those who get their dogs differently.

We need to stop branding those who "shop" as worse pet owners or as people who "sign dog's death sentences". That is not the case at all, I love my dog as much as every other pet owner loves their animal, my sper is my life. So please no more "adopt don't shop" because if someone wants to open their home to a pet and share their love with someone, we need to support them. Not bash them down for the place the chose to get their dog from.

Just remember animals know nothing but love, let's make sure that we give them that, no matter where they are from.

To The Girl Who's Terrified To Go To College

I used to be in your shoes. Here's what the past four years taught me.

Hi! My name is Caroline and I am about to be a 5th year senior at Texas A&M.; This time in 2014, I was an anxious, sobbing wreck. Now, I love college so much that I delayed my graduation a semester so I could do a second minor and avoid adulthood.

I had dreaded leaving home my entire life.

I come from an amazing, close-knit family who I couldn't imagine not seeing every day. I would miss coffee with my dad in the mornings, and being able to find my mom whenever and talk to her about anything that was on my mind. I would miss baking with my sisters, singing Disney songs at the top of our lungs, and all piling onto the same bed for late night talks. I would miss discussing books with my brother and going out of town for the weekends together.

I knew everything was changing, and I was petrified, paralyzed with fear.

When I went to Impact, which is a Christian camp for incoming college freshman at my school, a couple of weeks before move-in day, my BG mom asked all the girls in our BG how we were feeling about our transition to college. The other girls said they were fine, but for me—blubbering waterworks. It was so embarrassing and I still cannot believe that I was that girl.

I got three good pieces of advice when I went to Impact, and I would like to pass them on to you.

1. You will be lonely.

2. You will have to eat alone at some point.

And it's okay because everyone does. I know these don't exactly sound like advice, more like cold facts you don't want to hear, but they took a tremendous amount of pressure off me since I didn't have wild expectations for my first semester.

3. In your first year of college, you will see how faithful God is.

The day before I moved in was easily one of the worst days of my life because of anxiety and fear. In my journal that day I absolutely poured out my every fear to God and trusted that maybe someday I could see how He resolved them. That day came sooner than I expected.

More than just mere answers to prayer, college has provided an extremely challenging set of circumstances that God used to sanctify me, hammer out my flaws, and make me more like the Christ I've become more confident in proclaiming.

None of it was miserable, and it was never too much for me to handle—in fact, I've had the best time of my life.

I was not overwhelmingly lonely, did not overwhelmingly struggle in my classes, and was never tempted to sin beyond what I could bear. At every turn, God has blessed me, given me joy, shown me Himself, and proven Himself stronger, more loving, and better than I had ever dreamed. And if you are fearful, or even if you're not, I am confident the same will be true of you.

College is a big transition. The courses are hard. Managing your time is hard. Growing in your sanctification is hard. But it is fun, and so much more than worth it.

College is a blast; you will absolutely have the time of your life. By the second day, if you are socializing and doing fun stuff, I will be very much surprised if you aren't calling your mom breaking the news that you're never coming home—that sure was the case for me.

The truth is that you are smarter than you think you are, you need space from your family more than you might think you do, and you are overall much more prepared than you think you are.

Some final advice for the road:

Turn off your phone, stop talking to your high school friends, and go do something with someone. No one else knows anyone either, and even if it's not like you to initiate friendships, you'll end up with a lot more of them if you just find someone sitting around and see if they want to grab lunch.

The first few weeks are crucial—be social! Pick out organizations before you go, join them and stick with them. You will get more out of your college experience if you have one organization and let it be your whole life than if you try to be a little bit involved in 4 organizations.

Stay in church. Find a Bible study. Go to the Supplemental Instruction sessions. Look for opportunities to explore, branch out, and have new experiences.

For the love of God, if you fail a test (you probably will) get help immediately. Don't skip class. NEVER stress about not knowing what to do with your life; instead,

"In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make straight your path." (Proverbs 3:6)

Be excited about college. You are young; the whole world is before you.

Don't succumb to Netflix-induced, class-skipping lethargy, though the pressure to do that will be there; instead, grab onto life and live it to the hilt, live so hard you fall into bed exhausted every night.

Throw yourself into God, trust in Him, and enjoy this adventure as hard as you can because, you heard it here first: you'll blink, and it'll be over.
