They are man’s best friend for a reason. The new movie “Dog Days” (in theaters Wednesday), starring Vanessa Hudgens and Nina Dobrev, explores that special relationship between owner and dog, following several Californians as their lives become entangled because of their love for dogs.
The film captures the good and the bad: the moments our pets make us laugh and the times they make us want to pull our hair out. Here are five moments that dog owners everywhere will relate to.
There’s no way you can sleep when your dog is awake.
Ever try to catch some z’s with a dog in your face? Dogs are like newborns, only with less crying and more drool. They pull the covers away, sit on top of you, bark a sonnet and make their presence known just as you are drifting off to dreamland. Adam Pally’s Drax, who dog-sits for his sister (Jessica St. Clair), discovers what most new owners learn: that there’s little sleep to be had when an excited pet wants to play.
