Shhhh….don’t tell my kids! That’s the first thing you need to know before reading on. And yes, after 7 years of not having a dog, we’re taking the plunge…because…take a look at this picture I call Exhibit A.
These fluffies belong to my kids. They took this after the dog finished their OLYMPIC GAMES. Yes, this is them…on the podium stand… receiving their “medals”. Now let’s move along to Exhibit B.
Here, the dogs are being taken for a walk. Yep, in a baby stroller because that’s the only way to walk a STUFFED ANIMAL. They love their dogs, and make sure that even in cold,winter like weather, their dogs get some fresh air.
These dogs are definitely loved, and luckily we live on a street with lots of dogs. My kids have pretty much adopted every dog as their own. This has tided them over for many years. But that only works for so long.
Seeing their love for animals, how kind and gentle they are with other dogs, AND and the fact that my husband and I have always wanted a dog led us to cdfinally deciding to get one of our own. Is this a good idea? Well, puppies/dogs are a lot of work, need a lot of care, but….they’re also really wonderful. I’m excited to see where this trail takes us and will post pictures when we pick up our new member in August (if everything goes according to plan).
I wanted to share something fun and light-hearted during this trying times. And what could be more light-hearted than getting a puppy!?!

Congrats! Excited to see pictures of the little one when the time comes. Are you considering a breed in particular or just love at first sight?
Thank you, Brittany! We’re going to be getting a min/med English Goldendoodle from a breeder we found. ! I’m so excited and can’t wait to tell my kids. Which we of course have to wait, or every day they’d be asking me, “Is today the day? Is it time yet? OR how many days left!?”
