I’ve only been a dog mom for 18 months or so. I got my feet wet with Sully about a year before that, but didn’t get my very own little nugget until last spring when Gia needed a home. In the past few years, I’ve learned a thing or 2 about what it takes to earn never ending puppy hugs and kisses.
Dress them up in your love! Seriously, they love this. Look at Gia’s face. She can barely contain her excitement.
Be patient. And install a doggie door. Your life will change.
Learn to love all shapes, sizes, and colors. Make dog friends to wear your babies out. Play dates!
Give and receive lots of hugs. Lots and lots of hugs.
And kisses. Sweet and slobbery.
And accept that you no longer have personal space. Or clean furniture. Ever.
Yes, this is a shameless post about our baby girls. I think I speak for both Blair and I when I say our lives would be miserable without the endless love we receive. Coming home to their wagging tails and wiggling butts is one of the best feelings in the world.
Maybe we can get another one… 😉
