11 Photos That Show What Life Is REALLY Like With Multiple Dogs


It starts out innocently enough. You don’t want your pup to be lonely, so you bring him home a buddy. Then you see a pitiful pooch desperately in need of a home, and think “Two dogs, three dogs – what’s the difference?” Before you know it, the canines outnumber the humans, and every move you make is tracked by multiple sets of watchful brown eyes.

When you have three or more dogs, your everyday life undergoes a few, shall we say, “adjustments”. These 10 activities you once took for granted will never be the same again!

1. Having Guests Over

Let’s be honest, is there anything better than being welcomed home by a group of wiggle butts? We wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world!!! (this door mat is also available in the iHeartDogs store)

“Seating is limited.”

2. Meal Prep

“Is it ready yet? How about now?….Now?”




3. Daily Walks

“We’re going to need more poop bags!”

4. Working Out

“Mom, what are you doing? Why are you on the floor? Are you okay? What’s this mat for? Mom?…Mummy?…Ma?”

6. Bedtime

“We saved you a spot. All you have to do is contort your body into a pretzel.”

“Moving your limbs at night is overrated, anyway.”



7. Having a Snack

“Oh, hello, human. It appears you are having some pizza. We also enjoy pizza.”

8. Relaxing on the Sofa

“Hey, is it cool if we put our butts on your new throw pillows? ‘K, thanks.”


“You can see the TV, right?”

9. Coming Home Late

“We’re not going to mention the time. Let’s just say we’re disappointed.”

10. Family Photos

Thank goodness for the panoramic setting!


“I told you we should have put Gordo in the back!”

11. People At the Door

Is there any truer statement? Why even have a doorbell right? (this garden flag is available in the iHeartDogs store)
