Your dog is the most awesome dog there is. Yep, we’ve all said this about our lovable pooch. We brag about them, cover our Facebook with pictures of them, and talk about them like they’re one of our children. They are exceptionally loving, playful, loyal, and just downright wonderful. They are there for us in the morning to wake us up, greet us when we arrive home from a tough day, celebrate holidays and family gatherings with us, and jump onto bed when it’s time to sleep. They’re part of our lives as much as any other family member and they should be celebrated every day.

We all love our adorable pooches, and there are even those of us who are slightly obsessed. Take a look at these signs to see if you’re one of us. Be sure to share some of your obsessive traits with other Green Monsters and discuss which of these you find yourself doing:

1. You Talk to Them Like a Person

Sometimes, you may remind yourself of Ron Burgandy and his fabulously furry friend, Baxter, who ate the whole wheel of cheese. You wander around the house talking to him, sharing the ups and downs of your day, your triumphs and losses. He listens, cares, understands, and never judges. A true friend indeed.

2. You Pamper Them Like Your Child

 

Your pooch may not have these pretty fly Nike tennis shoes, but it has probably got a gorgeous collar, tons of toys to play with, excellent “schooling” and its own bed (if it doesn’t automatically climb into yours. Our dogs deserve the best, don’t they?)

3. You Happily Pay the Extra Security Deposits

 

Okay, so a few things may get ruined along the way during your pooch’s puppy years. But you’re happy to shell out the extra bucks to have him living with you in the great rental house near the dog park. I mean, it’s even got enough space for the two of you to wander around with enough space. Of course, that’ll never happen as your friend will most likely be on your heels the entire time you’re living there.

4. You Only Feed Them the Best Food

 

What your dog eats matters to you. It is important to you to keep him/her on a healthy diet, with minimal additives and plenty of vitamins, nutrients, and energy boosters so they can keep up with you when you’re out running, or when they’re chasing their tails. They both seem to be equally exciting for them. Who’s to judge?

5. You Include Them in Family Portraits

 

Your happy pooch is always in the family portrait. You may have gone so far as to ask a photography studio if you can bring them in for a solo portrait too! Why not include them in your portrait? They’re as much a part of your family as your parents. You care for them, they care for you. You’re always excited to see them, they are always excited to see you. You share your food, they…well, you probably shouldn’t share food.

6. You Spend More on Their Grooming Than Your Own

 

Your pooch is fabulous and you don’t care who knows it. They get the full treatment from the groomer or maybe you do it yourself. The sky is the limit when it comes to them. And who cares if their wash, trim, and blow out is more than yours? They’re worth it.

7. You Have Their Picture as Your Background

 

Not just the background on your phone. Oh no, we’ve far surpassed that. It’s the background on your home computer, work computer, phone, tablet, etc. They’re probably all different photos from awesome days you’ve spent with your companion. Just look at that face!

8. You Arrange Play Dates With Other Furry Friends

 

If you have kids, you set up play dates. So why not do it for your pooches? They need interaction as much as people do. They get to frolic and run around with their friends. They explore the dog park and get to flirt a little with the others, as well. It’s also a great chance for you to get to hang with some like-minded people and share fun stories about what your dog has been up to lately.

9. You Only Hire the Most Qualified Sitters When Out of Town

 

Okay, so maybe your nephew isn’t the top choice, but you want someone who will actively play and engage with your pooch while you’re out of town. Knowing they are well taken care of and loved is an important factor if you can’t be there. Plus, it’s one less thing to worry about during that business trip. You’ll nail it knowing your buddy is being looked after properly.

10. You Have Both Dog Treats and Human Treats on Your Counter

 

Guests see treats on your counter and go to reach for one…the wrong one. You’ve gotten so good at making dog treats for your buddy that they are starting to look like things your friends can eat. No matter how many times you’ve warned your friends, they still reach for the treats without thinking. (My grandfather made the mistake once, we still have a chuckle about it today.)

11. You Constantly Trip Over Toys

 

Balls, squeaky toys, ropes, and stuffed animals are everywhere. On the couch, next to it, under it, on the stairs, in your bed. The list goes on. Your pooch has so many toys, it’s starting to look like a toddler’s dream come true. Your dog probably gets even more when its’ birthday rolls around. It’s a small sacrifice to make knowing they’re without you while you’re at work. They need things to do! They need all the toys!

12. You Can’t Remember the Last Time You Weren’t Covered in Hair

 

Sweaters, jeans, suits, dresses, and even socks are covered in hair. You wash and wash, but to no avail. There are probably even a few lint rollers in your car to try to tidy up a bit on your way to work. So you like to snuggle? All the time. It’s bound to happen. Just make sure to try to get most of it before a big presentation with your boss.

13. You Don’t Know How to Sleep Alone Anymore

 

That queen bed you bought last year sure doesn’t seem as big as it once did. In fact, you’re wondering what the difference is between that size and a tiny twin sized bed. Ohhh wait, yep. It’s because your pooch has taken over more than half of it. Sprawled out in all its glory. At first, it seemed a little cramped, but now, without the comfort of your little buddy next to you, it’s hard to catch a good night’s sleep.

14. You Can’t Remember Your Life Before Your Pooch

 

The days of coming home to an empty house are over. Now you’ve got a loving home with someone to greet you at the door and make you feel needed, responsible, loved, and cherished. Family is everything, and in this case, you’ve found it, waiting at the front door, tail wagging, and a sparkle in their eyes.

Am here to testify what this great spell caster done for me. i never believe in spell casting, until when i was was tempted to try it. i and my husband have been having a lot of problem living together, he will always not make me happy because he have fallen in love with another lady outside our relationship, i tried my best to make sure that my husband leave this woman but the more i talk to him the more he makes me fell sad, so my marriage is now leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. so with all this pain and agony, i decided to contact this spell caster to see if things can work out between me and my husband again. this spell caster who was a woman told me that my husband is really under a great spell that he have been charm by some magic, so she told me that she was going to make all things normal back. she did the spell on my husband and after 5 days my husband changed completely he even apologize with the way he treated me that he was not him self, i really thank this woman her name is Dr Aluta she have bring back my husband back to me i want you all to contact her who are having any problem related to marriage issue and relationship problem she will solve it for you. her email is [email protected] she is a woman and she is great. wish you good time.

Enjoyed this page. Written by someone like me, who knows dog behavior and loves the doggie they have - quirks and all.
My dog is sitting here giving me heavy sighs which turn into "poor me" , drama queen groans. I can\'t get back to sleep.. We exchange these loud sighs until she gives up. It is 3 a.m. and she has awakened me, 2 hrs ago to go outside.Freezing out. I can\'t let her stay out. In she comes I can\'t get back to sleep. She wants to play. And she wants (always) FOOD.
One thing she will do is let me sleep in the mornings because if she does, she gets a belly rub. (We are both retired.)

Thank you for your miracle Doctor Osemu Okpamen

This article is dedicated to the Doctor Osemu Okpamen. I have been married with my wife for 5 years and recently she broke up with me and it hurt me deeply when she told me to leave her alone and that she does not love me anymore when i was always faithful and honest to her. I tried all the ways to get her back buying her what she wants like i always did and she still left me heart broken and she even has a new boyfriend which destroyed me even more until a friend of mine from high school directed me to this genuine spell Doctor called Osemu Okpamen. This man changed my life completely. I followed everything he told me to do and my wife came back begging for me back. I was stunned everything happened exactly like he told me. I had faith in everything he told me and everything was true. Also he was there every moment until i got my happiness back and he also provides spells that cures impotence, bareness, diseases such as HIV/AID E.T.C You can contact him via email at { [email protected] } or visit his website http://www.doctorokpamenspells.com.

My names is Adams Helen am from USA i want to use this opportunity to thank Dr Trust the great doctor who bring back my husband which makes me very happy today so i could not keep the wonderful work he has done for me so i decide to share it with you all because he is real not like those who eat up my money and never do anything for me, i have 2 lovely kids for my husband, about 3 years ago my husband and i has been quarreling about some things he is doing that he had not been doing before,like keeping late at night and drinking i don\'t know that my husband is having a secret affair with a lady close to my street they do meet after work at one hotel,one day i felt that this is too much to bear then i confronted him one night but he did not listen instead he beat me up in front of our kids then he finally left me for the lady. i felt my life was over and my kids thought they will never see their father again. i tried to be strong just for the kids but i couldn’t control the pains that torments my heart, my heart was filled with sorrows and pains because i was really in love with my husband. Every day and night i think of him and i always wish he will come back to me, until one day i met a good friend of mine that was also in a situation like me but her problem was her ex-boyfriend who she had an unwanted pregnancy for and he refused to take responsibility and dumped her. she told me that mine was a small case and that i shouldn’t worry about it at all so i asked her what was the solution to my problems and she gave me this great Doctor email address i was doubting if this man was the solution,because i have tried so many fake Doctor on the internet but they only eat up my money and never work for me so i contacted this great man and he told me what to do and i deed them all, he told me to wait for just 42 hours and that my husband will come crawling on his kneels just for forgiveness so i faithfully deed what this great man asked me to do and for sure after 12hours i heard a knock on the door i went and open the door, in a great surprise i saw him on his kneels and i was speechless, when he saw me, all he did was crying and asking me for forgiveness, from that day, all the pains and sorrows in my heart ran away,since then i and my husband and our lovely kids are living happily.that is why i want to say a big thanks to Dr Trust This great man made me to understand that there is know problem on earth that has no solution so please if you know that you have any relationship problem, i will advise you to contact this great doctor through his mail
