Also, why can't you be compared in this? Also Jayson. I hear he loves his new dog.

Frequency of baths: Once a month pretty much. They get brushed at least once a week.
Number of walks a week: We are lacking here. Mostly due to laziness/we think they get enough exercise playing and running around with each other.
Number of times boarded: We avoid boarding if we can (usually they stay with my in-laws, they are dog lovers)
Where do they sleep: Linus is only 6 months old and we believe the 1 year we crate trained Luna worked very well so he's currently sleeping in his crate. Luna gets to sleep where ever she pleases within our bedroom. Which usually ends up being her dog bed or the floor (sometimes it's on the bed with us)

Webcam in house to watch them?: I had a nest cam before we got either of our dogs for security, so we can use it to watch them by default.
Number of monthly subscription dog toy boxes: None. We spend enough on their high quality food and treats.
Numbers of pictures taken per day of animal: Hard to tell. We have over 110 photos of Luna in a google photos album. Linus is crazy and moves around too much to get a good amount of pictures. I think his count right now is around 30.

I don't want to compete in something that I know I'll lose in. Roscoe is like a roommate that has to be fed twice a day and let outside

Just called the ASPCA on your ass for animal cruelty.

Who is more obsessed with your dog(s).
Criteria:
Frequency of baths: At least 1 per month, depending if they get covered in poop/slobber/mud
Number of walks a week: I would like to say a few per week on average
Number of times boarded: Literally never. we always have someone dog sit or my parents
Where do they sleep: In bed with us
Webcam in house to watch them? No. they stay in their crates during the day so there is no point
Number of monthly subscription dog toy boxes: We get barkbox once a month. It comes with a nice amount of treats (3 bags or so i think) and 3 toys and it's only ~$25/mo
Numbers of pictures taken per day of animal: Kathryn would be able to guesstimate better but i would bet 3.

Your wedding will be the first time they have ever been bordered? That's impressive. We board Roscoe in the same town that Jocelyn's parents live, we don't even ask them because they decided they aren't dog people anymore

Corey and I are obsessed with Kirby but were not the best parents sometimes...
Baths: try to do once a month but I don't think we do as often as we should
Walks: that's what our backyard is for right?
Boarded: I can only think of one time
Sleep: in our bed
Webcam: yes inside and backyard
Subscriptions: none
Pictures: probably only once a week now. It was way more when he was a puppy

It is the worst when they get dingleberries... They don't just let you wipe their butt, and our dogs don't have tails so it's like... "omg i have to grab this snub and it's super close to her butt where the poop is HERE IT GOESSSSSSSS thank god no poop."

Omg Tim and I are obsessed with our dogs! They are so cute and loving and wonderful! I am late like everyday because I have to give them good pets. I take pictures and videos of them everyday! I just ordered Bella's baby book from shutterfly-Pipers is perfect.

We got Fran a harness for taking walks because she was being naughty on walks with just her collar. Hopefully this will be better.

That helped Roscoe when he was a puppy, but then he got too fat and couldn't wear it.

I liked the idea of doing an Insta account for Fran and created one when we first got her but haven't posted in it for a while. I don't often post in my own Insta though, either. @franbarkenton
