We’ve already covered the 10 reasons why dogs are better than boyfriends (cats, too). We’ve received a few e-mails from the “boys,” who have pointed out the obvious unfairness of singling them out, so we thought we’d look at things from the other side of the coin.
Of course, this is all in jest — a little fun for the Valentine singletons — but we’re betting there’s a little kernel of truth to be found in some of these reasons. So here you go, guys, and please do let us know if we left anything out.
What is that smell? Who cares! Dogs like when you smell weird, even when you smell like another dog.
Dogs love when your friends come over — the more the merrier.
Running late? Not a problem. Dogs don't expect you to call when you're running late; the later you are, the more excited they are to see you.
...that is, unless you want to, and the shopping trip ends when you say it ends.
Dogs never need to “talk about our relationship.”
Dogs don't want to know about every other dog you've had before.
Dogs have no use for flowers, cards, or jewelry, and they don't care how much you paid for their toys.
PDAs are always welcome with dogs — it doesn't matter where or who's looking.
Dogs don’t complain about their bodies or compare themselves to dogs in magazines or movies.
Dogs understand that when you've gotta go, you've gotta go. In fact, they'll probably respect you even more for marking your territory.
Anyone can get a good-looking dog, and dogs never think about how they deserve a better looking owner, even if they lose weight.
...the uglier a dog is, the cuter it is.
You won't hear your dog telling you to stop and ask someone for directions. Dogs understand that instincts and a sense of adventure are better than asking someone to point the way.
Dogs would rather have you buy them a hamburger dinner than a lobster one — and have we mentioned yet that they never complain about your cooking?
Dogs aren't limited by condtions. According to your dog, you don’t have flaws — you’re completely awesome just as you are.
