It’s no secret that the team here at BarkPost is a group of dog fanatics. But liking dogs or owning a dog is totally different from being a Single Dog Parent. As a Single Dog Parent, your relationship with your dog exists on completely different level from people who casually say, “Yeah, I have a dog.” As a Single Dog Parent, your dog is your roommate, companion, furry child, and yes, sometimes even a great excuse to stay in on a Friday night. Wondering if you could be considered a Single Dog Parent, but not sure how to tell? Here are 25 tell-tail signs to look for.
1. 98% of the photos your iPhone are of your dog.The other 2% are selfies of you and your dog
10. Your friends know better than to set you up with a cat person or someone who is allergic to dogs. It doesn’t matter if he’s Mr. Perfect; if he doesn’t like dogs or has to take a Benadryl just to step foot into your house, it isn’t going to work.
14. Since you live alone, you made sure to install a high-tech interior video camera that you can monitor from your smartphone. But not for security purposes; you’re just curious about what your dog does all day when you’re at work.
19. Coming home to your dog after a long day at work is the highlight of your day. They’re always happy to see you, ready to snuggle, and doesn’t ask you how the meeting went or what you did to totally screw up that project.
