1. OMG, you are the cutest thing I’ve ever seen.

2. We have such a connection. You like me more than anyone else, right?
3. You totally do.
4. I wonder how old you are.
5. Never mind—who cares? Age ain’t nothin’ but a number.

6. Oh! You just sneezed, and it was SO adorable.

7. Bless you, though!
8. This is a big responsibility. Am I really ready for this?
9. I am. I so am.
10. I should probably try to be strict and not let you sleep on my bed.
11. But who knows how tough your life was before you ended up in the shelter …
12. OK, GET UP HERE. Just for tonight, though!

13. And tomorrow if you’re good.

14. Well, maybe we’ll have to try it for a week.
15. All right, time to housetrain you.
16. Oh, wait, I think you’re already housetrained.
17. I’ve never been so proud to pick up poop!
18. You already know how to “sit,” too?
19. You are SO SMART.

20. I want to give you SO many treats!

21. But I also really want you to be healthy.
22. I actually care more about how healthy your food is than how healthy my food is.
23. I guess that’s what it’s like to be a parent.

24. I’m really a “dog mom” now.

25. Somebody should send me a card for Mother’s Day.
26. Man, I’ve never been on so many walks.
27. I didn’t even know this part of my neighborhood existed.
28. You’re, like, opening up a whole new world for me!

29. Aw, you don’t like the rain?

30. That’s OK, I don’t really like it, either. But I’ll walk in it with you.
31. Nap time?
32. I love that you take so many naps.
33. Afterward, we should go to the dog park!

34. And to the beach!

35. And on some play dates!
36. I can even take you to brunch at an outdoor cafe!
37. You can finish your nap first, though.
38. I want to take you everywhere with me.
39. We’re really a pack now—a pack of two.
40. I don’t know how anyone could ever have given you up, but I’m glad I found you.
41. This is the best decision I’ve ever made.
42. Aw, your tail is wagging!
43. My neighbors probably think I’m insane because I talk out loud to you so much.
44. But I feel like you understand what I’m saying.
45. Do you? Bark once for “yes.”
46. …
47. OK, that’s fine. We’ll come back to that another time.

48. I think you might be the best friend I’ve ever had.

Dog Kisses

49. You definitely are.
