You Might be a Dog Lover IF …

I can’t take credit for writing this but I could not resist sharing it with our readers. This was sent to me by my Sister (thanks, Sis!). It gave me a case of the giggles and is just too perfect for me not to share it with all of you. It’s called “You Might be a Dog Lover IF …” Read and enjoy — take the test and let us know where you fit!

If anyone knows who the original author is, please post it (with proof!) so I can give proper credit where credit is due. In the mean time, thank you to whoever was dog-brilliant enough to write it!

Take the Dog Lover Test …

  • You can’t see out the passenger side of the windows because there is nose-art all over the inside.
  • You carry dog treats in your purse or pocket at all times.
  • You have baby gates permanently installed at strategic places around the house but you have no babies.
  • Your dog owns more clothing and toys than your neighbor’s children.
  • You sign and send birthday, anniversary and Christmas cards from your dog(s).
  • You decide you might have kids so the dog will have playmates.
  • You talk about your dog(s) the way other people talk about their kid(s).
  • You tell your relatives you aren’t coming unless the dog(s) are invited, too.
  • Your dog eats poop but you let him kiss you anyway.
  • You make your significant other sleep on the couch because there isn’t room for the three of you in your bed.

I won’t tell you which ones are me but I will tell you that I qualify with six out of ten matches! How many can you claim as yours?

    LOL, you’re welcome! Merry Christmas and Howly New Year! I’m loving my new place with my pet-loving housemate! She and I let each other’s dogs out when we have to be away. And she gave my pets treats and toys for Christmas! Still struggling, but I’m feeling so grateful that my snuggle buddies are safe and well!

  2. Radlove says:

    I qualify for 5, maybe 6. I could add a few, too, LOL:

    * You keep the trashcan in the kitchen pantry
    * You fantasize about inventions like indoor plumbing for dogs in the floor, dog proof shifter knobs and rearview mirrors, that don’t keep getting knocked off.
    * You have devised some sort of step next to the bed so they can easily get on and off.
    * You are in a constant state of straightening and then washing “dog blankets” on the sofa.

    I won’t say how many of these I meet, but I will add one….I slept on the couch one night last week because all of my six dogs and three of my four cats were in my king sized bed and I couldn’t find a position that wasn’t pretzel-like that allowed me to sleep. They all slept well, though.
