Telltale Signs That You Like Dogs More Than People

There is absolutely no shame in preferring the company of a dog than a human. People can be mean, judgmental and insensitive. None of these applies to Fido. Hanging out with canines as opposed to people can also be beneficial to your health. Research has shown that canines make people happy and improve your heart health. You are a dog-lover, all right. But do you like them more than people?

You melt every time you see a dog’s eyes

There is something about the way they look at you that makes you want to squeeze, cuddle and eat them. This can be scientifically explained. The brain responds in a parallel way when perceiving cuteness and seeking food, according to a study.

You follow many dog accounts on Instagram

Instagram is a digital catalog – it’s all about the photos. Do you follow more dog owners and accounts of actual dogs than fashion icons of chefs? Does a day go by without you checking out puppies, rescue organizations, and cute celebrity dogs?

You take your dog everywhere you go

Maybe you’re not allowed to bring your pooch to work but you’ll take him hiking, on a night out with friends, and on vacations (obviously). There are some really pet-friendly hotels that treat your four-legged best friend better than you.

You always worry about Fido

You left enough food and water in his bowl, his toys are around for him to play, and no windows are wide open…but you still worry that something will go wrong…As if he knows how to turn the oven on and forgets to turn it off later.

You’d rather stay home with your dog than go out

It’s Friday night and your friends are calling you, but you don’t pick up the phone because you want to avoid explaining how much you’d rather be with your dog and cuddle than spend money on drinks in some bar and scream at the top of your lungs so your friends can hear you.

You get offended when people say “he’s just a dog”

He is not just a dog; he is your most loyal best friend who never judges you. Suddenly, you find yourself deleting that insensitive person’s number from your phone and block him from Facebook. He or she is dead to you.

You don’t move when your dog sleeps in your lap

What do you do when you cuddle with your significant other and you’re not comfortable? You move into a position you’re both happy with. This is out of the question when Fido is in your lap. You just don’t have the heart to wake him up.

You can’t wait to go home and play with your dog

Regardless of whether it was a stressful day at work or it felt like a breeze, all you want to do when you clock out is to go home and play with your dog. Nothing beats him barking at you as he impatiently waits to throw that tennis ball in the air so he can catch it.

You’re a tidy person but don’t mind when your dog makes a mess

Everything has its place in your house and you make sure you clean up at least once every few days. The only mess you don’t mind is the one Fido makes. His toys are all over the place and the laundry is on the floor because he knocked the basket while running around. Who cares? He is happy and this is all that matters.

You’re more careful about what your dog eats than your diet

Eating healthy can get expensive so you don’t always buy organic milk, lean meat and a lot of fruits. This is not the case when you shop for your dog – he only gets the best because this is what he deserves – no GMOs and absolutely no preservatives.

You throw a birthday party for your dog

And you plan it for weeks, if not months. You send invitations and you create a wish list so people will know what to get. You book a venue for the party, you decorate it for a specific theme, and you make sure you invite only friendly, well-behaved canines.

You cry when a dog gets hurt in a TV show

People getting shot and dying on TV is nothing new to you and you don’t feel a thing when it happens. But when a pooch has a sad face, let alone die, you feel his pain and start crying.

You show your dog off all over social media

Not a day goes by without you posting a photo of you and your cute puppy on Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, and anywhere else you have accounts. You always have your phone in one hand and pooch in the other so you can snap pictures at any second.

You spend weeks looking for the perfect gift

When your dog’s birthday is over, you don’t feel relieved that you don’t have to worry about getting him a present for another 12 months; you worry that you only have a year to think of the perfect gift for him.

You wear matching Halloween costumes

This is the season to dress up your pet any way you want and that means anything that matches your outfit. Strapping into costumes and posting fun pictures on social networks for the world to see, judge, comment and vote won’t be the same without the spirited and spooky whims of adorable pooches.
