We make no secret that we LOVE our pets here
We always welcome our visitors’ canine companions as well. The more the merrier!
This is our squad (the very definition of “squad goals” if you ask me!): Eli-Princess just turned 4 and she is the big one in the back. Our Pugs are (from L to R) Jordan (12), Mookie (1), Cheyenne (11), Jack (11) and Koko (9). All have their own unique personalities and quirks. I love that about them.
I tell everyone to get a dog. Why?
They make you feel happy when you’re sad. Seriously, they just know when to comfort you.
They are super helpful. I mean, who hasn’t needed their dog to show off a cool trick or two during a lull in conversation when people are over?
They teach responsibility. Mini’s daily chore is letting the dogs out for their afternoon constitutional when she gets home from school. She knows that gets done as soon as she gets home, before she even does her homework. I don’t even have to remind her anymore, which is great.
They’re protective and bark to alert you of potential danger. That car door closed four houses down and you NEED to be notified. Repeatedly. Just in case. Also, your neighbors are having a conversation in their yard. You need to know what’s going on, right?
I absolutely LOVE my pets. I can’t imagine NOT having one, but I totally get that they aren’t for everyone.
For fun, I decided to take this great breed quiz from PuppySpot to see what type of dog would fit our lifestyle. PuppySpot is dedicated to the safety and health of all their puppies for sale, which is shown through their no puppy mill promise.
I have to admit I was a bit nervous because I already have my babies and I think they are a good fit, but maybe my next pup should be something else?
YAY! I got “The Loyal Companion”, which I think PEFECTLY describes my Puggies and even my Hound. Eli-Princess is pretty mellow, but loves to run around crazy-like and play fetch in the backyard.. Note: by “fetch” I mean she grabs whatever I throw, runs it over to the other part of the yard then leaves it there for ME to go get so I may throw it again. I’m so very well-trained
Hope you enjoyed the quiz and I encourage you to paw through the PuppySpot site. Maybe you’ll meet your new bestie over there!
