you know you're a dog owner when...

  1. You have poop bags in the pockets of all of your coats.
  2. You have extra tennis balls in the center console of your car. And more in the trunk. And more in the glovebox.
  3. You carry around a Gentle Leader and some dog treats in your purse.
  4. The inside of your car windows have noseprints all over them. Or drool. Or both.
  5. You have perfected the art of the "baby voice" - and you don't have any children.
  6. Everyone knows you at PetSmart.
  7. You know where all of the dog parks are within a 50 mile radius.
  8. There is a whole shelf in your freezer devoted to stuffed Kong toys.
  9. Your accountant calls you to "make sure that you're aware" that a large portion of your earnings are being spent at pet boutiques, doggie day care, and trips to the vet.
  10. The only books you buy anymore are about dogs (training, tips, breeds, personalities, etc)
  11. You have a lint roller in your house, your car, and at work.
  12. You use the term "mixed breed" rather than "mutt."
  13. You keep the TV or radio on when you're not at home.
  14. You love Victoria Stillwell and hate Cesar Milan, or you love Cesar Milan and hate Victoria Stillwell.
  15. You get a little choked up when watching Animal Planet.
  16. You are used to sleeping while curled up in a ball because your dog likes to stretch out on your bed at night.
  17. You can only remember people by associating them with their dog.
  18. There is a dresser drawer designated for "dog park clothes."
  19. You don't trust people who don't like dogs.
  20. You go to a party and get more excited to see the dog than the host.
If I forgot any, let me know!
