If you have ever had a dog, no matter the age, size or breed, you know that going to the restroom is a joint activity. And with those big, beady eyes looking at you (looking at all of you) things can sometimes be a bit awkward. If you think about it… we’re always with our dogs when they go to the bathroom. Aren’t they just returning the favor?? Here are 18 things only people who share their bathroom with their dog understand….
1. The first time your pup followed you in the bathroom it was quite an event.
“I’ve only known you for a couple of hours, but I’m ready for us to take this best friendship to the next level.”
2. You had to teach your pup some boundaries.
3. Your bath mat has a completely different purpose now.
Would it be weird to get a bathroom bed?
4. Your pup has peer pressured you to play ball at some inopportune moments
Certain bathroom visits require all our attention.
5. And occasionally you’ve succumbed and actually have played fetch from the John.
“Crap. Come back! That was the last toilet paper roll!”
6. Because, for some reason, you feel the need to entertain your pup!
“So a priest, a rabbi and a Labradoodle walk into a bar…”
7. You feel a little exposed with your down-there maintenance
I’ve been busy!
8. You try to cover up your unmentionables.
To maintain a shred of privacy.
9. But you definitely cover your butt.
“Is that a butt in my face? Don’t mind if I do!” *Liiiiiiiick*
10. You feel judged if you happen to be taking awhile.
You never rush them …usually.
11. You never feel judged for anything else, though.
12. Sitting on toilet = chin on leg
Too cute. Can’t move.
13. You’ve contemplated picking him up.
14. But after measuring the risk/reward, you’ve decided against it.”
“How did this happen!?”
15. You feel safe knowing your royal throne will be protected and guarded
“The coast is clear.”
16. Except when you have guests over, then things get awkward.
“Party’s in here guys!”
17. With just a little bit of training, you could have your own toilet butler!
Dreams DO come true!
18. Going to the bathroom alone has become a distant memory
We are in this together!
