Man's best friend turned toddler.
It's ONE thing to have "a dog" and something completely different to call said dog "my baby" or "love of my life". It’s not enough to just own the fluffy goofballs, many of us find ourselves committing to a higher role than just caretaker.
Here are ten (OK, maybe super obvious) signs you might be a LITTLE obsessed (in a good way!) with your dog ... I mean baby:
... or bring you “gifts” of the grosser variety.
WHAT? It’s not THAT weird. Everyone does it.
Disciplining is important, but really you take away whatever they chewed, wag your finger, and give them a treat ten minutes later because they look hungry.
Sure, you go to the dog park, but not to make them tired. It's to socialize them (of course!) The exhaustion is just a plus.
You accept the full time job of their nine o’clock curfew and their five o’clock wake up call.
You weigh the options between a “family” movie night at home and staying out late with friends. But you ALWAYS have to be back home on TIME!
At the dog park you talk to the other dog parents explicitly about your dogs and their wellbeing.
You are persistent with their medications/vet visits/eye boogies.
You love those goofy creatures no matter what. BFFs for LIFE!
