Spring has arrived. The sun is out and the temperature is just lovely – most of the time.
My first born has turned 6 and after much thought we have welcomed a puppy called Pedro into our lives.
We are definitely ready for a pet in our lives. So the research began as there are a few conditions that need to be met. Firstly, I wanted a child friendly dog, low maintenance, small and cute. So I hopped onto Google and search for ‘dogs for lazy people’ and there were 10 dogs on the list! All of them were gorgeous and when I got to the bottom of the list, I found the smallest of all of them – my heart skipped a beat. I came across a Puggle, a cross between a pug and a beagle – so adorable!
My girls have always wanted a dog but because Mario and I work fulltime it wouldn’t be fair to have a dog locked up at home all day. Life is wonderful and full already, we didn’t need an added responsibility and could I really be a responsible pet owner? I checked within. To my surprise the answer was a resounding YES!
So I hopped onto Goggle again to find a reputable breeder and found the most pleasant, cutest little pal.
My husband picked him up on our daughter’s 6th birthday; it was an instant love affair! Yes, I know it’s just a DOG we are talking about.
They say that dogs choose their owners. Pedro has chosen well. Our social engagements are now planned around Pedro, who would have thought?
Puppies are meant to be mischievous. Well not Pedro, he is totally scoring brownie points as he is a true pleasure. He is like our lucky charm. A little superstar in the making. Wherever we go, people come over for a chat and take a snap to show their family and friends. Pedro laps up the attention and my 4 year old daughter Alannah loves answering all questions about the dog.
At 6am this morning, Alannah and I took Pedro for a walk, it was great bonding time for the three of us!
Just like that my heart has connected with man’s best friend and it has been rather surprising how we as a family, have embraced the new joys and responsibilities that come with being a pet owner. Are you a pet person? Do you love your pet? Please post photos of your beloved!
