6. You feel compassion
Even after your little canine just destroyed your favorite book and your only honeymoon album, you are the one that feels sorry. You immediately take the blame. "It's my fault. The poor dog was alone all day and I didn't have time to walk him this morning. He's just ornery. Poor pup." How does this happen? We don't show humans that same compassion. Would you forgive a burglar because they were ornery from being alone all day and not getting enough exercise or love from their parents? I think not. See, dogs run the house.
7. You get angry
Don't get me wrong, I don't always forgive my puppy right away. Sometimes he really pisses me off. That's okay. I piss him off too. It's healthy, just like any relationship. I'm the parent and he is the kid. Sometimes he just wants to play when all I want to do is watch TV and he gets super pissed. A loud sigh, cry, or bark is his way of voicing his issues. Sometimes he just isn't ready to "go poopies" and just wants to go for a walk and he will shoot us an ice-cold glare that gets his point across. But again, that's okay. Because every once in a while I just want to hold him and not have to scrub piss and shit out of my carpet. And sometimes I just don't want to pick up 12,000 piece of magazine from under the bed. And I definitely don't want to chase him around the house to get back my last sock, since all of the other have been destroyed. All of my toes don't need to be in the sock anyway. Oh yeah, you spend more money when you get a dog.
