8 Signs Your Pet Loves You

posted by The Daily Fluff December 31, 2017 0 comments

Ever wonder what your pet really thinks about you or if they are just using you for food? We pour so much love into our four-legged best friend. While they can’t say ‘I love you’ there are other, sometimes bizarre, ways in which they show their affection.

In preparation for Valentine’s Day here is a list of the many ways our pets show their love:

  1. They bring you ‘presents’:

Although not what you’d normally put on your wish list, it is always the thought that counts. Cats are natural predators, so in leaving the odd dead mouse or bird for you, they are either teaching you how to hunt or showing off their abilities. Either way it’s a loving gesture.

Dog’s bred for hunting will do this as well as it also shows they are a top dog!

  1. Snuggles:

If your dog likes to sleep in your bed and cuddle with you then it is a big sign that they like you. Especially after feeding time or in the morning when their motives aren’t food related.

Cats like warm and safe places to sleep, that is mostly your lap and sometimes, for inexplicable reasons, your head.

  1. Tail wagging:

Body language is an excellent way of reading your pet’s mood. When a dog is wagging their tail or their ears are lifted it is safe to say your pup is happy that you are around.

The tail is also a useful tool for reading cats. The word is if a cat’s tail is up and twitches a little that cat is sending off friendly vibes.

  1. Hanging out and following you:

If you’ve ever wondered why your pet follows you around the house or waits for you outside the bathroom, it’s simply because they enjoy your company. Dogs are pack animals and love being around family.

While cats are notoriously independent they are not above seeking company as well.

  1. Eye contact and kitty winks:

Did you know that when your cute kitty winks at you or squints they are saying ‘you’re alright?!’ It’s like a stamp of approval that shows that they trust you.

Dogs are less complicated. Sometimes all you need to do is make brief eye contact with a pooch and they are bounding over to you with a goofy look on their face.

  1. Showing their belly:

When cats show their belly to you it is a sign that they trust you. If you’ve ever had a cat scratch you when giving their tum a little rub they say it’s because it’s a breach of their trust.

On the other hand, most dogs love having their belly scratched. A dog rolls over as a sign of trust as well, but they may just want to scratch a place they can’t reach.

  1. Playing:

Playing catch or tug-of-war with your pup is a good way to strengthen your bond. There’s no harm in a bit of roughhousing as well if it doesn’t go too far. It shows that your dog likes having fun with you!

But it’s not just dogs! Cat’s love playing with their owners as well! A curled tail usually means they are in a playful mood so it’s time to bring out the toys!

  1. The big welcome home:

It’s one of the more obvious signs when you come home and your furry best friend is nearly knocking over furniture in their excitement to see you. They may spring down the hall, rub against your legs, and then pretend they never cared you left.

6 Signs Your Dog Loves You

posted by The Daily Fluff October 10, 2016 0 comments

Everyone who knows you is very (VERY) aware that you love your dog. You most likely have photos plastered all over your wall of your dog, as well as screen savers, and think about your dog whilst at work. You possibly even dream of a land where only you and hundreds of clones of your dog exists—or is that taking it too far? Anyway, the point is, there is no doubt you love him or her, but how do you know that the special dog in your life loves you back?

They give you lots of kisses:

Your dog showers you with sloppy, smelly kisses. They kiss you when you wake up, before you go to sleep and every opportunity in between. Although it’s sometimes unwanted — like when you’re trying to get ready for a special occasion, and your hairy pooch decides it’s the perfect time to slobber all over your brand new outfit—it’s your dog’s way of saying “I love that you exist!”

They get excited when they see you (not matter how long it’s been):

Dog: “Mum, it’s been a whole day, I missed you so much!”
Also Dog: “Mum, I went outside to go to the toilet, I missed you so much!”
You know your dog loves you when they are CONSTANTLY greeting you like it’s been weeks.

Bentley says, “My favourite way to show how much I love my humans is whether they’ve been gone for 10 minutes, or 10 hours; making sure they’re absolutely smothered in kisses and cuddles from me the second they step in the door! (Whether they like it or not!)”

They can’t be upset with you:

Your fur child HATES the vet, HATES when you leave him/her and HATES baths. Despite this, 30 seconds later your dog will be in your arms begging to play. No matter how upset your dog may have been during unpleasant situations or whilst you were telling it off, it will forget about it straight away.

They want to be close to you:

Sometimes this means that sitting by your feet or next to you is not enough, and your dog will insist on sitting on your lap (even if they are 45 kilos)! Dogs are very loving, and contact is one of the main ways they express their affection!

Competes with others:

Your dog wants your undivided attention, and sometimes when your friends, partner or even other pets are around your dog gets extremely jealous that it’s not getting 100% of it. Occasionally the jealousy will result in a stare off and/or pushing its way between you and whatever is distracting you.

Pulls the ‘puppy dog eyes’ move ALL THE TIME:

We already mentioned evil stare offs, but puppy dog eyes are a whole new level because nine out of ten times you cave. Not only is this your dog’s favourite way to manipulate you, but it shows how badly your pooch wants to spend time with you!

4 Ways to Spoil Your Pet Today

posted by The Daily Fluff September 27, 2016 0 comments

We LOVE our pets, and we love to spoil them – which is why we’ve rounded up our four favourite ways to spoil your furry-friend today!

Find out what they are below.

Food:

Admit it, you totally like to spoil yourself with your favourite dessert every now and then and let me tell you, our pets love being spoiled with food just as much! Try swapping out your pet’s usual food for something a bit extra special.

Another great idea is to try making your own dog or cat food. You can make a large quantity and freeze it to bring out on special occasions to surprise your fur-baby.

Toys and playtime:

If you’ve got a ball-crazy dog then you know how much they just love playing catch. Sure, throwing the ball 50 times in a row can get a little boring, but you know your dog absolutely loves it.

Don’t forget our feline friends either! Grab your cat’s favourite toy and really invest in a good exercise session. This will keep their mind and body active, as well as acting as some great boding time for the two of you!

Adventures:

If there is one thing that dogs love, it’s exploring new places! Treat your dog by taking them for a walk to a new dog park, or even a dog friendly beach!

If you’re up for a more relaxing day then you could take your dog to a dog friendly café and relax with a latte while your pup explores.

Volli the Dachshund loves going to new places:

“I know I have little legs, but I can keep up with you – don’t you worry. All those smells and trees to pee on, it’s like an amusement park for my senses!”

Cuddles:

Well, maybe this one is a treat for us too. One sure way to spoil your pet is to give them all of the love and attention they need!

Volli has explained this perfectly:

“When you are home, just let me hang out with you – all the time. You are my best friend and being by your side is happiness.”
