When you own a pet, your life changes completely and mundane days turn into bright events. It’s because these 4-legged friends love you sincerely and protect you from the gloomy outside world. They also can become great partners on trips and can show you how to get the best rest ever.
Smalljoys wants to share stories from dog owners whose pets continue to make their days more colorful.
“My dog looks like she’s proud of what she did.”
“My dog intentionally fake coughs to get more attention. If this isn’t intelligent behavior, I don’t know what is.”
“I bought it to go on hikes. She hates me.”
“As a maintenance tech at an apartment complex, I don’t enter an apartment that has a dog if no one is home…except for Brutus. Brutus just wants to help.”
Because it’s comfortable.
“It was at this moment I realized I was powerless against this dog…”
What having dinner looks like when you own a dog:
It’s as if this Pomeranian came from your nightmares!
When you try to discipline a husky:
“My best friend’s first and most likely last camping trip. He’s still alive! Just too old to go adventuring.”
“Good boy cosplay”
“I love saying goodnight to this face each night. Side note: Rosie sleeps with her bone and treats it like her baby.”
“Girlfriend and I adopted a puppy, he fell asleep on the table his first day out on the town.”
“Our dog carries a piece of dog food with him around the house. Sometimes, he licks it while sleeping.”
“I wasn’t sure where she was, so I called her name and was greeted by this.”
“My old man knows the right way to spend a Sunday in Florida.”
“Jewel and I drink coffee together every morning, she has her private glass there and drinks milk foam. She will be 16 soon.”
“My 11-year-old dog found a new job as the designated pillow.”
When the last thing you want to do is share:
“My puppy has nailed the ’walking past a coworker you don’t really know’ smile already.”
“This dog protects the door to the shower when my girlfriend is in there.”
“It seemed like a good idea to work from home. It seemed…”
