Remember that meme circa 2012? FLASHBACK TIME!

Sharing your life with a dog is one of those experiences that changes you. It involves learning what bully sticks are made of (you might not want to do a Google Image search for this one), finding out your dog’s funny scooting across the carpet means he needs his butt squeezed, and investing lots of bones on lint rollers (or just changing your wardrobe to match the color of your dog’s fur. Yes, I’m that person.).

Even the things you say change when you become a pup parent. Things like:

1. “I rescued him, but sometimes I feel like he rescued me, you know?”

2. “Do I have dog hair on me?”


Yes. The answer is always yes.

3. “Pugs Labs Frenchies Pits *insert breed here* are the best!”

4. “Did she fart? Sorry.”

7. “I like sniffing her paws. Is that weird?”

LIES. You’d just rather hang out with your furry best friend.

9. “She waits for me to throw away the bag, and she poops again. She knows what she’s doing.”


10. “Puppy breath smells soooo good.”


11. “Who wants a treat? Is it you? Is it you?!”
