What was it like when you first got a dog? Do you remember how it felt to meet your pooch? Maybe you’ve been a crazy dog person your whole life—who isn’t??—or maybe the puppy fever hit suddenly. Either way, the transition from imagination to reality was huge. One day you’re casually going out to happy hour, and the next, you’re rushing home to let your dog out to pee. Life with dogs brings more slobber, more poop, more chewed-up toys, and way more love.
Yeah, we wouldn’t trade it for anything.
Do any of these look familiar?
1. “I won’t let her sleep in the bed with me. Too much fur.”
2. New life goal: impressing everyone at the dog park.
3: “Dog yoga is totally a thing and we’re doing it.”
4. Healthy DIY dog treats, every day…
5. Romantic walks by the beach, plus poop bags.
6. Living the dream.
