Breakups can feel devastating whether you’re on the giving or receiving end of it. It’s something that can stir up a lot of emotions. It’s frustrating, it’s sad, and, at the same time, we feel like we might not be able to bounce back and ever love again.
This is exactly one of the many reasons why we should become a pet owner. The unconditional love, loyalty, and affection we get are incomparable. Owning a dog might even set you up for your next romance – hopefully, someone who shares the same enthusiasm for pets as you do.
If you’re going through a breakup on your own, don’t worry! Here are some tips that will surely help you with moving on. All of them involve your furry friend.
Their unconditional love
Even if you’re in a mess, even if you’re wearing the same sweatshirt for over a week now, there’s still someone who loves you no matter what. Guess who? Of course, none other than your dog. They don’t care what miserable state you are in. They always are there to give you unconditional affection.
They’ll bring you the TP love
Dogs usually play with toilet paper, and it can get annoying. But during this dark moment, their usual troubles don’t irritate you anymore. It can seem like something funny and takes your mind off things. Who knows? They might even bring you toilet paper to wipe your tears on.
Seeing dogs get caught up
When you see people tangled in a mess, it isn’t pretty. It’s really embarrassing and unsightly. But when your dog gets into a mess of their own, like puppies getting tangled on their leash, it actually looks cute. It’s funny to watch too.
When you are feeling cuddly with no one to hold you, know who you can turn to. Just pick up that puppy; cuddle it, play with their cheeks and just show them some love. They’re always ready to receive your smother.
They’ll give you kisses too
Although, sometimes there’s a lot more licking involved. You can’t deny it’s pretty sweet for your dog to give you the occasional smooch. Although maybe they’re just looking for food. Who knows.
At some point, while you are getting over a breakup, people will go along with what you want to do to make you feel better. Dogs do this too. Well, actually, even if you’re not going through anything, they’ll do what you want. So go and reenact those movie scenes with your dog and have some fun.
Therapy through shopping
Some people get over a breakup by buying new stuff. If you’re one of those who do this, taking your dog with you makes the experience better. Go shopping with your dog.
Workout with your dog
New stuff? New life? You might want to get a new body as well while you’re at it. Go and work out with your dog. This will benefit your physical health as well as give your dog an avenue to release excess energy.
And those are just a few of the many things you can do with your dog to get over a breakup.
