    My heart hurts looking at these pictures! We areplanning to buy a house in the spring, and have been holding off on a puppy until then, but OHMYGOSH – it's so hard!

    Your dog is adorable!! I'm in love.

    Dogs are the best for sure. I love that having a dog makes me get out and exercise more than I would have otherwise. I walk her a lot because she needs the exercise too. She's my sidekick.

    You know you're a dog person when you write a whole post about your dog….

    Have a great week!!

    This is SO true. My dog was a life saver for me. He is always ready to hang out and I don't know how many tears I've cried into his fur. We have been through 3 moves together, 3 different jobs, and many ups and downs, all in 3.5 years. He's been my best friend and comrade through all my adult endeavors.

    He has been hard work and a big responsibility, but he's taught me so much about myself and made me change for the better!

    oh my gosh! all these! seriously. my little pup completed my life and taught me so much. then we got a kitty and it was like a circus. and then we had a baby and i was like holy thank GOODNESS we started with animals! they teach you like, everything! i love being the caretaker type so i felt like it completely came naturally to just keep on adding to our household since my pup was the one who initially got me used to having someone depend on me! i love my fluffs so much!

    I want a dog so badly!! Especially now after seeing your photos. šŸ™‚ Unfortunately my apartment doesn't allow pets, but we just signed a six-month lease this year instead of a full 12-month lease, in the hopes we can move somewhere pet-friendly in the spring!

    Your puppy is so cute!!! It's so hard to find apartments in LA that allow for pets, though! Believe me, it's the only thing keeping me from having a puppy! & your shiba inu is darling!!!

    I can hardly handle the cuteness. I am on the fence right now about getting another dog, and this is not helping!

    Yes! I use my pup as an excuse all the time! "Do you want to do this tonight" No, sorry, my pup has been in her crate all day so I need to give her a chance to run around.

    These are all completely legit reasons! Dogs are the best. And your puppy is so cute! What breed is it?

    These are all so true, but numbers 1, 2, 6 and 10. Yes, just yes. I always say my favorite feeling in the world is when I come home from work and no matter how gross I look/bad I smell/miserable I am, but dogs are genuinely happy to see me. They don't fake it ever. There is literally no better feeling in the world than that true, honest love and affection you get from a dog!

    omg that face is so adorable. šŸ™‚ i used to have a dog but now he's with my parents. I think we travel too much and that's the hardest part of having a dog. we don't want to deal with boarding them or doggy hotels. but when we settle down, we'll probably adopt one for sure. šŸ™‚

    On the dishwasher! What a funny dog! The barking at 4:00 a.m. thing is a riot…surely not for you though! Your dog is a cutie.
