You Know You're a Dog Owner When...

(Originally found here as part 1 and part 2; I LOVE THIS!)

You know you’re a dog owner when…
… you wave at someone with the same hand with which you are holding a bag of poo.
… you spend more for food and treats for them than you do on yourselves.
… you explain the dog’s past to others to explain his demeanor so they can “better understand” him.
… you step on squeaky toys and kongs on the way to the bathroom at night
.… when you spend big bucks on a pool and they are in it more than you.
… you can find at least 10 dog hairs on your clothing at any given moment.
… you are judging rental houses based on the yard vs. the house.
… it’s not family snuggle time without the smell of frito paws in your face.
… your living room is covered in fur and you vacuumed two hours ago.
… picking up poop in a plastic bag is second nature.
… you have baby gates all over your house but no babies.
… when you treat your dog better than you do yourself!
… hair in your food doesn’t gross you out.
… you sleep half the night twisted like a pretzel because the DOG is comfortable.
The normal sleeping arrangement

… you cook good, healthy food for your dogs but not for your husband.
… you forget to bring the camera to your nephew’s third birthday party but never forget to bring it to the dog park.
… the back seat of the SUV has a protective cover, there are harnesses and leashes under the seat, and treats in the glove compartment along with vet records.
… you find yourself getting up at 4:45 in the morning to walk the pup before you go to work and you love your sleep. You just love your pup more!
… you’ve tried their food out of curiosity.
… you catch puke in your hands if your pet gets car sick.
… your pet has more toys than you ever did as a child.
… you have emergency contact information regarding your pet on the back of your driver’s license in case you are in an accident and not able to tell anyone about your animal.

Ahh, sweet love.
