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:

You find yourself overwhelmed with pride whenever they go to the bathroom outside.

 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.

Friends want you to go out? Yeah, probably not happening.

You use trips to the dog park to talk about ... your dog.
