As pet parents, we take our jobs seriously. Our animals probably get the best of everything. We do our best to take care of their every need, making sure that they have all their hearts’ desires. We spoil them rotten with plenty of toys. We make sure that they go on their annual vet visits. We spend lots of money on their food, especially if they prove to be picky eaters.
In short, there isn’t anything that we would not do for them. And there isn’t anything that we wouldn’t put up with for them, like when they hog our beds or refuse to let us get a good night’s sleep. Yet oftentimes, we feel like we’re alone in the ups and downs of being a pet parent. But pet parenthood is something that we share in common with a lot of people, and sometimes seeing it online through relatable tweets is what we need to remember we’re not actually alone.
Check out some funny tweets below:
1. We spend lots on them
Me: I should save money
Also me: spending money on sweaters for my dog is a selfless act that should not count towards my budget

2. Why we’re never able to save money
accountant: "youre basically broke"
wife: "he keeps spending money on stupid stuff"
me: "lets ask the dog if he thinks his jeans are stupid"

5. Sometimes we give money to dogs that aren’t even ours
This dog’s name is Moochi and her rescue group is having a fundraiser this weekend called “A Smoochie With Moochi” so naturally I have emptied my 401k and am sitting outside the bar, 5 days early, with all of my money in singles pic.twitter.com/wrR0DcLF7p

9. Showing dog breed pride is most certainly a thing
What is the word for when you own a certain breed of dog and thusly feel compelled to buy any merch even remotely featuring said breed of dog?
