There are people who have dogs, and then there are “dog people”. You know, the type. It’s when your dog is more than a pet, they’re part of the family. We’re certain we’re the latter, but if you’re still wondering where you are on the matter consider the following.
You know you’re a dog person if:
- You’ve ever signed a holiday card or letter with your dog’s name on it, too.
- Your passenger side windows are practically opaque thanks to all the nose prints.
- You take your dog to the bank, just to get the treat from the teller.
- You talk to them in that baby voice – and you don’t even have kids.
- You’ve held an umbrella over your dog while she “does her business” … while you’re standing there in the pouring rain.
- You have – or have even considered – a “my dog is smarter than your honor student” sticker.
- You don’t think it’s the least bit strange to see a dog kiss someone on the mouth.
- Your dog has their own toy box. And you don’t seem the least bit bothered by picking up after them.
- Your parents have ever referred to your “granddog”
- Your phone is full of pictures – of your dog.
- You’ve spent enough on training, treats, toys, etc., to offset the national debt of a small country.
- You’ve ever planned a weekend trip around something you think your dog would enjoy.
- You’re more likely to visit out-of-town friends or relatives who also invite your dog.
- You have dog treats in your glove box, bag or purse.
- You’ve got a kiddie pool in the backyard. And you don’t have kids.
- You’ve save just a little piece of that steak, just because you know your dog would love a bite of it.
- You’ve got baby gates in the hallway. And you don’t have babies.
- When your significant other is away, you let your dog sleep in the bed.
- You shop for dog food and treats with the same discerning eye used to buy your own groceries.
- You’ve considered getting another dog. They could be playmates, right? (Or maybe you have already!)
We could go on and on. So, what makes YOU a dog person?
