If you share your home with a dog (or 2 or 6 or 15), you know there are things people without dogs will just never understand. Here's a fun list of things dog lovers learn to deal with when navigating through life with a dog.
You will never ever have to eat alone again (or use the restroom alone either). Dogs will never understand why you won't share your dinner with them, when they make such excellent dinner companions! And it doesn't matter how sneaky you try to be, their noses will find you and those tacos.
You can probably get rid of all the clocks in your house. Whether it is time for their daily walk or dinner time, dogs have amazing internal clocks. They know what time you come home from work, what time you get up in the morning (and they don't care about sleeping in on the weekends), and they even know the worst possible times to let you know they need to go outside to go pee.
Another daily struggle with dogs comes at bedtime. Dogs will let you know that no matter what size bed you have, it will never be big enough. You can forget about having a "favorite side". Your dog will let you know where you are allowed to sleep, and in some cases, you'll be lucky if there's room on the bed for you. And when it comes to dogs, size doesn't matter. The smallest dog will take up the most space on the bed.
If you happen to work from home, as many of us are right now, your dog will let you know that a big part of your job responsibility is to give them attention. They can be extremely demanding bosses, and will interrupt your work day often. Some of your new job duties will include belly rubs, getting up to let them out, then getting up to let them back in, and then getting up to let them out, prepping their lunch, and of course the afternoon walking meeting. They will also remember all the times you ignored their meeting requests when it comes time for your review.
All kidding aside, dogs truly make life better. One of the benefits of sharing your life with a dog is knowing that there is ALWAYS someone that's happy to see you when you come home. Tough day at the office? Fido is glad you're home. Get in an argument with your significant other? Princess will make you feel better. Dogs can sense when we need them most.
And finally, one of the best thing about having dogs in your life: The unconditional love they provide. Even when we are not at our best, our dogs want nothing more than to be by our side, showing us just how much they love us. Dogs are amazing that way. Dog people know that.
