You have a kiddies paddling pool in the yard, but no small children.

Lintwheels are on your shopping list every week.

You refer to yourselves as Mummy or Daddy.

You can't see out of the back windscreen because there are nose-prints all over the inside.

You carry dog biscuits in your purse or pocket at all times.

You sign and send birthday/anniversary/Christmas cards from your
dog.

You'd rather stay home on Saturday night so that your dog isn't left alone.

You and the dog come down with something like flu on the same day. Your dog sees the vet while you settle for an over-the-counter remedy.

You match your furniture/carpet/clothes to your dog.

You have your dog's picture on your office desk (but no one else's).

Your weekend activities are planned around taking your dog for a hike (both days).

You keep an extra water dish in your first-floor bedroom, in case your dog gets thirsty at night (after all, her/his other dish is way down on the ground floor...).

Your freezer contains more dog bones than anything else.

You never completely finish a piece of steak or chicken (so your dog gets a taste, too).

You keep eating even after finding a dog hair in your pasta.

You carry pictures of your dog in your wallet instead of pictures of your parents, siblings, significant other, or anyone else remotely human.

Your parents refer to your pet as their granddog.

Your jewelry box contains no jewels... just various id tags.

Your coat pegs are full of collars, leads and dog walking coats.

When you dress up to go out, you feel "wrong" in non-doggy clothes.

You have dog toys and treats in your briefcase.

You pick cars by whether the boot has enough space for your dogs crate/ for your dog to turn around comfortably and lay down.

The glove pocket is full of dog stuff.

You cringe at the price of food in the supermarket but think nothing of the cost of dog food or treats.

You have six squeaky hedgehogs... but only 1 with a squeaky that actually works.
You don't throw the others away because "he likes them"...

Very Happy Fantastic. I am guilty of 16 on the list.

I often decide that I am going to leave him at home and enjoy an hour down the High Street "in peace." I get as far as the library (about five minutes into the route) and start missing him. So I usually end up nipping into the paper shop and, then, coming home as I am not enjoying myself. How sad am I? Wink

PS I also love dog people. They are the best.

I hate going out without him, I spend most of the time looking at my watch so he's not left to long. Embarassed

You forgot that when you get a tissue out of your coat pocket you pull out a poo bag instead, happened the other day when my boss went to blow his nose and he nearly blow his nose on one of his dogs poo bags, unused of course.....

That has just made me laugh out loud & read it aloud to my other half in the internet cafe. Cheered me up no end after a stressful week of everything going wrong in our new house. Dogs, don't you just love them Wink

Yup, I too can see myself on that list more than once, especially the car, we have just bought another car and the first thing we looked at was whether the boot would fit Enya or not. We discounted a couple of models because the boot was just too small and she would hit her head on the roof.
Plus my work colleagues assume I will always have poo bags available if they want to take spare cakes home from the buffet. The worrying thing is is I always have them..................

Love it. I laughed out loud, and had to explain to the girl who was walking down with me, yesterday as I walked down to the playground where I was about to be on duty in the school where I work. I'd just put my hand into my pocket, to check that I had a necessary supply of paper hankies and m y mobile, and had pulled out a fistful of dog poo bags and dog biscuits instead! Amanda p.s. my friend, being a nutty cat person (in my opinion!) sort of got it. . .

Nero wasn't with us when we bought our last car, but I figured if I fit in the boot he would. So I climbed in and crouched down on all fours while Tim shut me in. The salesman clearly thought I had psychological problems... Embarassed Still, I think it helped us get a good price (quick, get rid of the crazy dog people, they're bad for business!)

Sorry none of you are really dog people..... Os would be MOST put out to be put in the 'boot'. He gets to sit on the back seat and really prefers leather seats thank you!!

Just love the mental picture of you in the boot Roz, thanks for a good laugh.

Excuse me! I AM a dog person! Hugo, of course, travels with his harness on, on the back seat, in his hammock (so he doesn't slide about on the leather seats!), sticking his head through the zip to rest it on the arm-rest between us. How could you possibly suggest otherwise, Jill !!! Very Happy Laughing

Another wonderful 'mental picture'. Perhaps we should all start posting pics of our dogs in their carriages?

I drive a Toyota Aygo, so Chewy grew out of that boot by the time he was 4 months old.
He now has the back seat to himself and is most put out at the times he has to share it with my son.
It's really funny driving along when all you see from the rear view mirror is a huge hairy head. He likes to stick his head through the gap in the front seats too.
We've definitely had a few double take looks from passers by and other motorists at traffic lights. I often wonder how it must look from someone driving behind us, as Chewy is a fawn and me and my son both have ginger hair. Who's the hairy kid! Laughing Very Happy

Laughing wonderful. Ha ha. Reminds me of when when Zizou was a puppy and I was trying to teach him to lift his leg. All his pals at the time were bitches. Embarassed Embarassed You forget that onlookers may not have a clue what you are up to and why. Wink

Oh, I need the hankies quick, I am sitting here with tears rolling down my cheeks reading this lot.

I will say our other vehicle is a Ford Transit which has been converted into a motor home. Recently we had to empty it so we could have some electrics fittied. Now Enya loves the back settee and unfortunately we had taken the pillows out and not put them back. The first time she got in without the pillows, she immediately jumped up on 'her' settee and looked for the pillow for her head, she did give us a filthy look when she couldn't find it and promptly go off onto her own bed.

Yes, you guessed it, when we got home we put the pillows back in, she likes two you know!!!!!!
