Unbearable Barking

He won't shut up when he hears the smallest noise, but it's not because he's trying to annoy you. He loves you, and he wants to protect you. What if the garbage truck he hears outside is actually a murderer coming to take you away? He needs to warn you, because he couldn't live without you. Barking is one of the many ways your dog says, "I love you!"


Loving Licks

When your pup runs over to you and licks your face, you wipe off his germs. However, he's trying to give you a kiss! It's not as nice as when your partner kisses you, but hey, it's something. Be happy that someone wants to give you a little affection.


Stepping over Stuff

You're trying to do work on your laptop when your dog jumps on your lap and presses buttons on the keyboard. He's not trying to sabotage your education or work. He just wants the spotlight to be on him. He loves you, so he wants all of the attention. He'll do whatever he can to get it.


Playful Pup

Even if you're trying to get to sleep, he wants to play. He'll walk around with a ball or toy, trying to convince you to join in on the fun. He doesn't realize that you have work in the morning, and he's only trying to get you to enjoy life. What's the harm in playing a little fetch? He's the one running around. All you have to do is sit there.


Drags You around

If you have a large dog, then going for walks can be a real adventure. You want to go down one street, but your dog may try to drag you down another. He just wants to show you the world, so why stop him? Sure, you should be the one leading him, but sometimes dogs just want to have fun.


Lives on Leg

Does your dog jump onto your leg in order to show his... affection? It's not something you want him to do, but it shows you how much he likes you. Dogs can be better company than humans, so it's a compliment, really.


Wags Away

When you come home, who's the first one to meet you at the door? Your parents or partner or kids aren't ever as excited to see you as your pup is. No matter how many times you walk through that door, he'll be there to greet you. His whole day is spent hoping you'll come back soon.

If you've ever had a puppy, you know how loving they can be. They can turn into your best buddy in a matter of days. You don't even need any human friends when you have a dog waiting for you at home. Do you have a dog, or any other animals? What are their names?

My little Zoë has helped me through something I thought I could never overcome. Her loving heart has pulled me from a very dark place back into the light. She saved me and I will always be thankful for my little friend

so true :)

my cat does this stuff too, she's lived with a dog around for her whole life. maybe i should call her catdog, she usually comes when i call for her!

They change your life forever. I had a un conscious moment recently I fell straight to the floor .My family was saying calling and trying to wake me but I didn't .My puppy came running to the room and licked my toes I could feel that and I opened my eyes slowly.like many of you know they have their own ways to show love,care and concern.

i love my jacky! my most handsome german shepherd dog

my pup Otis is my baby, love him so much, he's such a character

my big baby Kazak.

This is so true. My dog diamond greets me every time I come home.

Add comment my little Chihuahua's name is Ozzie. He's blind, has diabetes, is insulin dependent (I give him injections twice a day), very expensive and because of the diabetes, needs to be walked more often than most dogs, but, he's the love of my life and I wouldn't trade him for the world.

I'm currently travelling so my puppies are with my mum. Every time I talk to her on Skype they're sitting there. I'm having an amazing adventure but I miss my babies so much! I can't wait to walk through the door and be ambushed by them!
