Not sure if this thing with your pooch is just a passing fling? or whether you and your pup are in it for the long paw-l? Here’s some sure fire ways to know it’s fur real!

1. You support his insatiable need to terrorize squirrels.

16. And your roommate gets it.


17. Even your ex boyfriend got it! (Even though your dog knew he didn’t really get it and he was obviously trying to warn you about that.)

18. You wake up early in order to walk 5 miles to get him to his job.


19. Which he loves, by the way.

20. Your dog will steal the pillow.


21. Or turn you into a pillow.


22. He’ll hog the blankets.


23. But it doesn’t matter, because his snoring in your ear every night is still your favorite sound.


24. Most of all, the biggest sign that you are totally, head over heels in love with your dog is knowing that adopting him was the best decision you’ve ever made, and thanks to him, you are grateful every single day.
