Since we’re known as the generation who adopts dogs instead of having kids, it goes without saying that the undying love is a two-way street. I love spoiling my dog – buying him treats, new toys, taking him on adventures, even just taking a break to scratch his head and stare into his eyes. Saying “my dog is my life” is one of the least dramatic things I could say.

And like some people obsess over their babies, we dog-lovers obsess over our pups. There’s nothing cuter than every single thing your dog does: when she rolls over in bed, when she yawns, the way she walks…it’s impossible not to share those moments with the world!
