You talk about your dog the way other people talk about their kids.
You put an extra blanket on the bed so your dog can be comfortable.
You go to the pet supply store every Saturday because it’s one of the very few places that lets you bring your dog inside, and your dog loves to go with you.
You and the dog come down with something like flu on the same day. Your dog sees the vet while you settle for an over-the-counter remedy from the drugstore.
Your dog is getting old and arthritic, so you go buy lumber and build her a small staircase so she can climb onto the bed by herself.
You match your furniture/carpet/clothes to your dog.

You put important papers in the latest issue of your breed magazine … you know you will find them there.
You have dog hair stuck to the tape on wrapped gifts.
You show up at the car dealers with a ruler, to measure and see if your big dog crate will fit. Before the actual purchase you make the dealer cringe by insisting that you load both crates and dog into the shiny, new vehicle to make sure it works!
You remove all the seats from the van except the two in the front so you have room for crates…
