You plan out of town trips around dog friendly hotels.

There are places you'd love to visit but never will because of BSL.

At least 1/2 of the food in the fridge & freezer belong to the dogs.

They eat chicken while you have tuna casserole

You make sure everything is packed for the dogs before you pack for yourself.

Your friends get embarassed and apologize profusely if they need to you leave your dog at home for some reason.

your family greets the dog louder and more exeuberantly than they greet you. "YAY!! Ruby's here! Oh, hi Michelle"

You buy stock in Hoover because you've burned out the motor in yet another vacuum cleaner :shock: (my THIRD one in a year and a half :x !). You can also discuss the merits of different vacuum brands at length with other dog people.

You pick dog hair out of the covered butter dish.

You'll spend inordinate amounts of money buying collars and leashes but have holes in your shoes.

You get a Dyson Animal vacuum and call people to tell them how awesome it is at getting all the hair off of your bed... (and they are grossed out that there is hair there in the first place.)

You feel worse for over disiplining your dog than you do for over disiplining your nieces.

You are eating dinner, find a dog hair in your food, pluck it out and keep eating...LOL

******On that note, a funny story is in order, a friend who breeds and shows GSD's told me...
A friend of hers invited some people over for dinner, and like most our homes, her home was blessed with dog hair in random and various places. The gal could tell her guests were miffed about having the dog hair and such all over, and it upset her alot that the people were being so snobby about the dogs.
So at the end of dinner, she said "Well let me clean up here" and set the plates down on the floor for the dogs to lick. Then she put the plates, freshly cleaned by dog tongues, back up into the cupboards. The guests almost fainted...
lol

... you can't take a shower or go to the bathroom without at least one dog following you in.

... you warn guests to LOCK the bathroom door because your dog can and will open the door and barge in.

...you spend 20-25 min. per dog blow drying them after a bath, but get irritated and cut your own hair if it takes longer than 10 minutes to style and dry in the morning.

..your dogs have luggage

~Analyzing dog poop is a normal part of your day.
~You have credit cards (with high limits) for emergency vet visits only.
~You buy cars/homes with the main objective being set ups for the dogs.
~You transfer to the middle school because it means you'll get off a whole hour earlier so the dogs won't be home along so long :oops:
~The dogs have their own freezer,couch, space on the bed.
~You've actually gotten used to sleeping diagonally and waking up with one leg/arm still asleep...and you sleep like a rock!

. . . your friend calls up to invite you AND your dog to a party, as she knows you won't come without him

. . . you look at your checkbook and realize that you have no money, won't be paid for 1 to 2 weeks, and you spend the rest of your cash on high quality raw meats for the puppers, while you eat the crackers and ice cream that have been in the cupboard for 2 years

. . . your dog takes up more of the bed than you do and you don't complain as you cling to the edge of the bed all night and get kicked in the face and stomach as he dreams

ditto...

-you compromise your sleeping position so that she is comfortable
-you find yourself changing your voice to talk to the dog i.e. "I wuv those batty ears!"
-you and your significant other/spouse find yourselves calling each other "mommy" and "daddy" even though you don't have any human children
-your underwear or socks can be found on the kitchen floor and not because you left them there
-because of the above, you have invested in a hamper with a lid, and then keep this hamper behind closed doors in the closet
-shoes that you value in any way are also kept under lock in this closet
-any company that you have over is well aware that dogs have no shame, and any foul-smelling odors not necessarily come from you

Last night as I was getting the dogs dinner ready my brother comes in to the kitchen. After a few minutes he asks "Can I have some of that?" I answered "Sure, as long as you eat it raw".
