Y'all I love Scooby-Doo so much that I watched a marathon while in labor with my first kid.

It's THAT serious.


Reddit user Fearless_Link_3464 asked:

"Who is your favorite fictional dog?"

So of course the memory of me pain-singing the theme song to What's New Scooby-Doo? immediately came to mind. That theme song might be my favorite thing Simple Plan has ever done - and that's me speaking as a fan. I never moved beyond my emo phase and there's nothing wrong with that.

Just like there's nothing wrong with loving a sort-of-talking cartoon dog.

Or loving any of these dope doggos; and yes, Scooby shows up on this list - as well he should.

Many people value solitude, and having time to themselves.

For others though, loneliness can be a crippling feeling.

Having no one to talk to or spend time with can get wearying after an extended amount of time.

Something many people know more than ever after the global pandemic hit in spring of 2020.
