The term "furbaby"  has never been so accurate.

You feed them, house them, take care of them when they're sick, and when you're not with your dog, you spend all day wishing you were. Sometimes they get on your nerves, and sometimes they overwhelm you with their cuteness.

People without dogs may scoff at the idea, but pup parents know that their dogs are their kids. More specifically, dogs are basically four-legged toddlers.

Here's why:

They behave best when they think they're getting a treat.

"My favorite day of the year is here! ???? Happy #NationalIceCreamDay!" writes @OscarFrenchieNYC. #dogsofinstagram

They don't understand the concept of sleeping in on the weekends.

"Sundays are for staying in bed all day," writes @girlandpug. #dogsofinstagram

They're still learning how to share.

They love snuggling in the fuzziest blankets they can find.

Dogs add to the chaos of having toddlers by fitting in perfectly with their adorable antics, and we wouldn't want it any other way.
