It’s National Love Your Pet Month! Let me just say, being a dog mom is one of the highlights of my life. My Riser girl is a giant ball of energy, but let me tell you…there is nothing I wouldn’t do for her!

As fellow pet parents, I am sure you can relate to the joy you get when you are greeted at the door by your furry family member. Here is a list of relatable reasons why we love being pet parents!

  1. That cute moment when your dog gets the zoomies just because they are excited to see you.
  2. When they stare at you with pure annoyance after you put a funny bandana on them with some cheesy saying that only you get a kick out of. Example: “I only love my bed and my mama, I’m sorry”.
  3. Their cuddles! My heart melts when Riser wakes me up in the middle of the night just so that she can snuggle up closer to me.
  4. When they bark at dogs on the TV thinking that it is their long lost furry-friend from HBO Max.
  5. Scrolling through your phone on your break and finding the cutest photo of them from when they were a wee little puppy.
  6. When you take them to the store and they pick out their own bone.
  7. Coming home and catching them cuddling with their Snuggle Puppy.
  8. Using them as an excuse to check out all of the local dog parks.
  9. Spending holidays together!
  10. Buying up all of the personalized dog mom stuff on Etsy.

There are many reasons why we love our pets! Although these are just a few reasons why being a pet parent is ‘pawsome’, the list could go on for days. 

The Snuggle Puppy Blog has many tips and tricks for new dog parents. As a fellow dog mom, I’d recommend checking out ‘Shopping for Dog Treats: What to Look For’.
