There are many reasons to get or rescue a pup. The cuddles. The companionship. The cuddles, again. But once you own a dog you realize rather quickly that the puppy eyes you fell deep into take on a whole new meaning. Most notably, guilt. Probably, a little shame too. Because your dog most likely did something mind numbingly, our-little-secret kind of nasty. Hate to break it to you, but there are some pretty gross things that happen when you own a dog that you probably didn't expect.
You probably won't think about the laundry list of things sweet Fido will one day certainly commit when you're initially connecting with your new best friend. How could a little friend with a wagging tail and panting tongue, eager for kisses, be so crude? Dogs are the best. It's true. But you should be prepared for the other gross truth. This way you won't be in shock when your newest furry friend snacks on deer poop. Because it will happen. Maybe All Dogs Go To Heaven, but not all dogs are ~angels~ all of the time.
Can we blame them though? Have you not stuck your boogers under a couch when nobody was looking? Have you not had some foul odor whiff off of your body? Things... happen. The same goes for your dog. But even after your dog drops something at your feet that makes you cringe and then gag, you'll very soon after fall hard for those puppy dog eyes. All will be forgiven and you will soon be cuddling on the couch. Because all dogs, even when they're gross, are good dogs.
