Know what’s cool about dogs? They are always happy to see you!
Not like teenagers or coworkers or significant others. I remember when my parents would come home from work and I’d be all like, “Oh,” and not even look away from the computer. I won’t even begin to tell you about these people I have to work with here at Dogster. (Just kidding! I love seeing these people — this is Dogster!) This one time a boyfriend I was living with wouldn’t even look me in the eye after some weird fight we had (we were young and no, we’re no longer together).
But while I was dog-sitting in Malibu almost two years ago, I got to come home to not one, but three wagging tails and panting tongues. It made me feel like I was The Most Awesome Person in the World. So are you, which is why these 10 dogs are so ecstatic to see you.
“I’ve got the two things I love most right here: Sunshine and you. Make that one thing because you are my sunshine!”
“Man, running around the yard at full tilt was awesome, but not as awesome as getting back inside and snuggling up with you!”
“I love you more than anything in the world — even more than fresh cat poop!”
“I love you more than the treat you have in your hand right now (but don’t think that I wouldn’t mind the treat — please give it to me!).”
“I’m so happy to see you! I’ve even forgotten about this goofy sweater you put me in!”
“Oh my dog, it’s you! It’s you! It’s really really you! I ran to fetch the ball and then I forgot where you were and then I forgot where the ball was and then I got really worried but then I found you!”
“My love for you is proportional to the size of my tongue. I love you because without you, this Frisbee couldn’t go anywhere and man, do I love this Frisbee (not as much as I love you, of course — but can you please throw it now?).”
“I am digging this hole for you! Aren’t you proud of me?”
“My happiness for you is as big as a Great Dane!”
Don’t you feel amazing now?
You don’t feel amazing yet? Well we bet you won’t feel bad after checking out this video of a capybara with some puppies. And if that doesn’t work, we’ve got amazing rescue news, from Zooey Deschanel’s adoption of two puppies to the amazing recovery of Rosie the inbred Chihuahua.
