7 reasons why I (sometimes) like my dog more than my daughter

1. He's sexually abstinent...for life

My dog will never come home with an unplanned pregnancy. Sure he's a boy and that is reason enough but he's also fixed. Teaching my daughter one day about the birds and the bees is a terrifying concept. Perhaps I should not watch Teen Mom so much as this may seem like encouragement. 

2. Attitude...no way!

Although my dog doesn't speak it's relatively easy to figure out his needs. Water. Food. Walk. He will never go all angsty teenager on me - declaring a love for anything I don't and slamming doors in my face. He will also never learn the art of the temper tantrum which my daughter is basically owning at this moment in time.

3. Independent

I can leave him home alone. In a car alone (with windows rolled down of course) and just in general...alone. His quietness doesn't mean he's getting into trouble. It means he's most likely taking a nap or licking his balls. In her case quiet usually means she has discovered his water bowl for the millionth time and tipped it all over the floor. 

4. He poops outside. Enough said. 

5. He will never need braces or glasses. Two things that if my daughter takes after me she will definitely need. Let's hope you got your dad's gene pool on that lady. 

6. Food. He eats it. Same stuff everyday without complaint. I don't worry about if he is getting enough veggies or if I have fed him Annie's too much this week. Organic? Forget about it we are talking about a dog that licks his butt. 

7. He unconditionally loves me. Sure only my husband walks him. But I let him sleep on my side of the bed (no worries about SIDS over here). His fur holds my secrets and tears and he has saved me a lot of money on therapy. He also knows better doesn't try and get away when I draw him into a hug. I'm looking at you one year old!
All joking aside I like my dog more than most people - but I love my daughter above anything. I mean that's a given right? But the internet can get all sorts of crazy so I felt I needed that little disclaimer.

  3. So funny because when I was pregnant, I watched Teen Mom all the time for reassurance. If those maniacs could keep their kids alive, surely I could do the same! Now it just terrifies me. And don't forget, you can leave your dog home alone for 10 hours a day and no one will come and take him away from you!

    Great post!

  5. You are too funny! OMG the attitude. We are full on hitting the terrible twos and my daughter seriously tests my patience every day. This post made me laugh! I love my dogs too although I have to say, even though they poop outside their farts rival toxic bombs. One thing my daughter will most definitely never be able to accomplish!

  7. Sometimes I feel like this about my cat. She's so patient with Sophie. and it's nice that I don't have to worry about her food options like ever.

  17. That picture is the best!! I love all of these points and I'm glad to know that I'm not the only one who will still allow (more specifically, encourage) my dogs to sleep in the bed with us after the baby is born!
