#NationalDogDay - 10 things only a dog owners have done

August 26, 2016

Hello lovelies,

If you haven't already seen it's National Dog Day today - a day dedicated to man's best friend! Above is an old picture of my dog Woody. I'd upload a recent one but he's not one for pictures... Anyway, I have always had dogs around me. Before Woody I had a Golden Retriever called Sadie who was equally as gorgeous. A home isn't a home without a dog they brighten up your day.

Today got me thinking of how crazy we all are over our dogs... Here's a few things every dog owner will have done at some point:

1. Take it personally when your dog sits next to or shows affection to someone other than you

2. Avoid getting up when you're dog has fallen asleep on you because how could you possibly wake them up?

3. Make an extra dog out of the hair around the house because let's face it - There's more hair on the floor than on your dog!

4. Taken your dog's collar off and shouted "OMG you're naked!"

5. Tell them where you're going and exactly how long you'll be whenever you leave the house

6. Imagine what they would sound like if they could talk

7. Pretended to faint to see if they will come to the rescue only to find they won't

8. Try to dance with them (especially if they're a large dog)

9. Teach them how to high five - Only to be disappointed when they refuse to do it

10. Love them unconditionally because they're the most loving animals out there
