I grew up with dogs my entire childhood. They are a lot of work and responsibility. So I said that I didn't want any pets; it is hard enough to keep up with my children. My kids have always wanted to have a dog. Each time they asked, I held a firm NO! I feel like we are always busy with sports, going places, quite frankly we just don't have time! So it's still a no. I don't want to take on all that comes along with a dog. We all know who ends up with all the responsibility, the mom. I say "NO THANK YOU!"
Lucas looked at me one day with the sweetest of sweet voices and said, "I just want a pet that I can snuggle and it will love me back," Well, who can resist that? Needless to say, we got a puppy, next month my princess, Dakota, turns three.
I know I said no to dogs, but I faultered, I did. Yet now, I couldn't imagine my life with out my girl. She is the sweetest dog I have ever owned. I love her pieces and we argue about who loves her the most. She is like having another child that we have to devote our time too, but I don't mind.
Now, I am the crazy dog lady who wants to bring her little dog everywhere! Everyone who meets her instantly falls in love with her giant brown eyes, kind spirit and her love of licking
ears. Today was her spa day, she is so pretty.
