Why Dogs are Better than Boyfriends

Thank you to the Honest Kitchen for sending us this guest post with adorable cartoons! Happy Valentine's you a few day's notice so you won't forget to go buy your dog a toy since he or she is a truly loyal Valentine. Or better yet, order him something yummy and healthy to eat from The Honest Kitchen!

Why Dogs are Better than Boyfriends

1. They’re great listeners. Whether you’re dealing with a hard day at work, a jealous friend, or an over-bearing mother – you always have their uninterrupted attention.
2. Dogs are happy to skip the ball game or bar night and stay in & ‘help’ you cook. While boyfriends may be critical of your culinary skills, dogs will lap it up & beg for more.
3. They like you just the way you are. You can get a bad haircut, wear your sweats all day, go lip gloss free or gain a few pounds. But to them, you’re perfect in every way.
4. You can almost always teach an old dog new tricks. Boyfriends, on the other hand, can take many years of coaching & still be unsuitable to take out in public.
5. Your mother will love your dog (she might even call them her grandchild). There’s no approval needed when you bring home a new pup – she’ll feed & spoil them – even if they cause a “stink.”
6. Dogs love your friends and they’re always down to hang with the girls. Bring along some treats and they’re happy to join in on shopping excursions (especially if they can fit in your purse).
7. They love to snuggle up any time of day or night. If you’re sick, they’ll cuddle with you for hours and won’t say a word about your current aesthetic state or number of Kleenexes on the bed.
8. Dogs are happy to join in any exercise routine – and unlike a boyfriend, they won’t judge your technique, try to time your reps, or correct your form.
9. They always let you watch what you want (but you might be sharing the popcorn). Plus, they won’t ask you to explain why you love sappy chick-flicks or dancing shows. The remote is all yours.
10. You’re never too old for your dog. They’ll never prefer a younger owner and they’ll love you no matter how many miles on your clock, or wrinkles around your eyes.
