These all sound too familiar. You know you are a dog person when…

  • You can’t see out the passenger side of the windshield because there are nose prints all over the inside.
  • Your dog is the star of your web site.
  • You put an extra blanket on the bed so your dog can be comfortable.
  • You carry pictures of your dog in your wallet instead of pictures of your parents, siblings, significant other, or anyone else remotely human.
  • You go to the pet supply store every Saturday because it’s one of the very few places that lets you bring your dog inside, and your dog loves to go with you.
  • You carry dog biscuits in your purse or pocket at all times.
  • You don’t go to happy hours with co-workers any more because you need to go home and see your dog.
  • You keep eating even after finding a dog hair in your food.
  • You have your dog’s picture on your office desk (but no one else’s).
  • You open your purse, and that big bunch of baggies you use for pick-ups pops out.
  • Your dog is getting old and arthritic, so you go buy lumber and build her a small staircase so she can climb onto the bed by herself.
  • You talk about your dog the way other people talk about their kid.
  • You avoid vacuuming the house as long as possible because your dog is afraid of the vacuum cleaner.
