From A Non-Dog Owner: A Brookey Guest Post

If ya'll are just checking in from the weekend, I'm off being in love and drinking a lot of wine I'll be back tomorrow but for now, I leave you in the capable and hilarious hands (she's hilarious.. not her hands..) of BROOKE!! I know you'll love her as much as I do.

She loves thumbs up. Reason 23789 I love her.

Hello, my favorite new people!

The name's Brooke and I blog over at Babbling Brookelyn, where I mostly babble about random crap - including music, fitness, food and my life in Portland. Can we talk about how excited I am to be taking over the blog, while Adriana is off playing!? 

Speaking of playing.... I really, really, realllllllly want a puppy to play with.  We all know Adriana has a mutt of a puppy that is both lovable and an asshole a handful all wrapped into one, big ass puppy. Her posts about Lily just fuel my desire to have one of my own.  Sadly, the apartment complex I currently live in does not allow dogs. How Rude! (Said in my best Michelle Tanner) 

So for the moment, I have this puppy instead: 

Meet, Rufus (no, not the dad from Gossip Girl).  He sits on my bookshelf at home. 

Since I can't get a puppy right now, I talk about them alllll.the.time. I just want one so badly. Even though a lot of people tell me to not get one. I mean I get it, they are a lot of work. They are expensive. They need a lot of attention. You can’t leave your house for more than a few hours at a time or they will pee all over everything you own. And don’t even think about taking a vacation once you get a puppy. They may even be  worse than as much work as having a child....almost. Not that I know what that's like.  They don't let me have a child. I am not mature enough for that kind of responsibility yet. 

So, instead of having a real puppy, I am forced to look at pictures of cute ones on pinterest all day. My life is so hard, feel bad for me.

And it has made me realize that there are a ton of reasons to get a puppy. I figured I could share 10 of them with you guys...

::10. Dogs make you get off your fat ass and exercise you them.

::9. You will always have someone who loves you. 
Who needs a man, when you have a puppy?! See ya, boyfriend.

::8. Dogs are great listeners. 
Sure, they can’t talk back, but they understand what you’re going through and they will be that sounding board you need.

::7. You have always have someone to shame and blame
It was obviously the dog that farted.

::6. They make great pillows.

::5. They will protect your home. 
Have you ever seen a cat guard a house?! Yeah, that’s what I thought. Cats are over here doing stupid crap like this: 

::4. You can dress them up! 

::3. They make great cuddlers.

::2. You can teach them tricks.
And not just sit and stay.

::1. I mean, look at this face!!! 
How could you not want a dog?!

This is my dream puppy. I LOVE BOXERS!

And one final note: 

I repeat, cats are useless.

She's awesome right? Although she clearly has convinced every one of you to go get a dog. If I didn't have Lil the psychopath, I'd go out to the pound right now. But if you aren't gonna get a pup you may as well go visit her at Babbling Brookelyn and follow her on twitterinstagram and bloglovin!

And dont forget to link up with Carly, Kate and I tomorrow for for Behind Closed Doors! Were we're sharing all the outrageous stuff you can only learn about someone when that comfort level goes from comfort to "realllllly? Come on!"

Dog Hair Is An Accessory


  1. Agreed, cats are useless. I think you have sound reasoning on all but #1, I wish my dogs helped get me off my ass. After getting a yard, it went downhill for all of us. I almost wish we didn't have one (a yard not dogs).

  2. Loved this. And in love with Jenna Marble's Kermit.

  3. Hi I'm Ginny a new blogger from NC! I just found your blog! I have a bulldog named Mr. Truck ....I talk a little bit on my blog about being a bulldog owner. I just started my blog so there isn't a lot on there regarding bulldogs yet but I agree that there are so many great resons to get a puppy. You definitely should! It will bring so much joy to your life.

    Cats are crazy....I just wrote a post about how I got bit by my cat and landed in the hospital.

    It's a very interestign story!
