Yes, while your dog many have one give name (or even two), they really have 20 different names that are variations of their name or even something completely different. John John Sushi Council, is John John's full name. But, he's most known as Beanie Baby, Little Bean, Pugger, Pug Pie, Pug Cake, Cakey, Muchkin, Smushy… and the list goes on.

2. You believe your dogs are your children.

6. Your dog has multiple dog beds, but they sleep in yours.

7. You buy your dog presents for all the holidays.

Of course you buy your dog presents for all the major holidays just like you would if you had kids! Your dog gets an Easter basket, Christmas stocking, and Valentine's Day treats!

9. You make play dates with other dogs and their parents.

If you are Dog Mom AF then you seek out other dog moms, make friends with them, and then plan play dates around your dogs schedules. (Duh, of course your dog has a schedule, you can't interrupt nap time!).

10. You ask your dog what they want to do on the weekends, as if they could answer you.

When you talk to your dog regularly, of course you're going to ask them what they want to do on the weekends. You'll watch as they look at you with intent eyes, tilting their head at the sound of your voice. While you may “make plans” with them, you know that they are happy to do anything you want so long as you're together!

11. You dress up your dog for Halloween.

13. Dog hair is an everyday accessory that you don’t leave home without.
