17 Ways Your Dog Makes A Better S.O. Than Any Human Ever Will

If you’re like me, you devote a crazy amount of time and energy to ensuring your pup’s every want and need is met. If I was asked to sit down and list all of the ways in which I cater to her whims, it would get embarrassing REAL FAST.

And while it may seem silly to some, all I need to do is look deep into her chocolatey eyes to remember one simple fact: she is worth it. And it’s not like I’m really getting the short end of the stick here either, there are plenty of ways my pup returns the favor and makes me feel loved.


Here are 17 ways your pup shows you how much they love YOU!

1. They give you hugs.


There’s no hug, like a dawg hug, because a dawg hug, don’t STOP!

2. They guard you from the mailman.
