My Dogs Are Better Than People


Work trips. I love them, I really do. I love getting out behind my desk and traveling to visit with clients. I love the communication and interaction aspect of it.  I love it all.
I do not, however, love being away from my boys. The oversized hotel bed, room service, and extra large showers are great, but when I crawl into the plush, comfortable bed at night I can't help but miss being squeezed between my two snugly dogs and the fiance.
It is exactly that time, the time when I'm all alone in my big comfortable hotel bed eating food that I ordered from the delicious restaurant downstairs and not telling any four legged creatures to back away and stop begging, when I realize that I am one of those. You know, as in one of those girls who likes her like dogs better than she likes actual people (or better than she likes alone time). Yep. That's me. Guilty as charged.

5 Reasons why I like my dogs better than people

1// They are always excited to see me walk through the door. Rather I'm gone for two days or I've simply walked outside to take the trash to the curb my two mutts are over the moon excited to see me walk back through the front door. They wag their little tails (or nub in Kane's case), jump all over me, and give me all the puppy kisses that their little tongues can handle. It melts my heart every time.

2// They don't give me attitude. Well, I suppose this is half true at least. They have mastered the art of pouting and manipulation, but they don't physically talk back to me or roll their eyes when I tell or ask them to do something. And even if they do get mad at me for something, it doesn't last longer than an hour then they are right back to cuddling in my lap.
3// They don't ask much of me. Just feed them twice a day, give them plentiful treats, walks in the park, and be available for unlimited belly rubs. That's all they ask out of me (if they could actually ask that is). If only people could be that simple in life.

4// They are selfless. They love you more than they love themselves and care more about your well being than their own. It is a proven fact that a dog will risk his own life in order to save the life of his faithful mom and dad. Dogs are amazing, and my two are definitely the best!

5// They don't judge me. If I am crying over the latest episode of insert trashy reality tv show here, they will come jump in my lap and soothe me. If I am eating an entire pint of Ben & Jerry's in my underwear after a long and terrible week, they will be there for me. It doesn't matter what crazy and embarrassing thing I am up to, they are always there to comfort me and never one to judge.
 There you have it. 5 reasons why I am the crazy lady who likes her dogs better than she likes people, and I wouldn't have it any other way.

Oh, and one last thing,
Dogs rule, Humans drool.

  11. So unbelievably true! I was just having a conversation with a girlfriend the other day about how dogs are better than people!
    They are always so happy, not judgmental, they don't talk back (maybe bark! ha!)
    They still love you no matter what.
    I ALWAYS miss them when I am away from them, especially long vacations. All I think about when I go to bed is them.
    I only hate being alone when my dogs aren't there. I love being alone without people at sometimes, but alone without dogs is so sad.
    I cherish my alone time with the fiance and two pups so much! We look forward to it.
