You Know You're a Dog Person When ...

  1. You can't see out the passenger side of the windshield because there are nose prints all over the inside.

  2. You like people who like your dog. You despise people who don't.

  4. You keep an extra water dish in your second-floor bedroom, in case your dog gets thirsty at night.

  5. You never completely finish a piece of steak or chicken (so your dog gets a taste, too).

  6. You shovel a zig-zag path in the back yard snow so your dog can reach all its favorite spots.

  7. You avoid vacuuming the house as long as possible because your dog is afraid of the vacuum cleaner.

  8. You make popcorn just to play catch with your dog.

  9. You carry pictures of your dog in your wallet instead of pictures of your parents, siblings, significant other, or anyone else remotely human.

  10. Your dog is the star of your World Wide Web site.

  11. You have 32 different names for your dog. Most make no sense, but she understands.

  12. Your dog eats cat poop, but you still let her kiss you (but not immediately afterward, of course).

  13. You like people who like your dog. You despise people who don't.

  14. You carry dog biscuits in your purse or pocket at all times.

  15. You talk about your dog the way other people talk about their kid.

  16. You sign and send birthday/anniversary/Christmas cards from your dog.

  19. 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.

  20. You open your purse, and that big bunch of baggies you use for pick-ups pops out.

  21. You get an extra-long hose on your shower-massage just so you can use it to wash your dog in the tub, without making the dog sit hip-deep in water.

  22. 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.

  24. Your license plate or license plate frame mentions your dog.

  25. You don't think it's the least bit strange to stand in the back yard chirping "Meg, pee!" over and over again, while Meg tends to play and forget what she's out there for (but what your neighbors think of your behavior is yet another story).

  26. You match your furniture/carpet/clothes to your dog.

  27. You have your dog's picture on your office desk (but no one else's).
