Vets your dates. If you’re undecided about a new love interest, introduce them to your canine companion. There is no faster way to tell if a person is good enough for you. The dog SEES those cowboy boots, I roll with my friend kitties and i’m hard as fuck shirt even if you haven’t yet. Snuggles as close as possible to you. Even if you’re doing a tricky yoga position on the floor, or trying to write a piece on deadline like right now. Follows you. Everywhere. To the loo. Always to the loo.
