These Photos 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

Fair Warning…

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.”

“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.”
