Because of all the time we have been spending at my parents while Jared's away at the Academy, Lincoln has grown very close with their two dogs, Lacey and Brady. Lacey is a 10 year old German Shepherd/Akita mix. She is actually my dog, but when I got married decided it was best to leave her at my parents. That was her "home," and taking her from there would have been upsetting to her. She is seriously the sweetest, gentlest dog I have ever known. Brady, is a 7 year old Golden Retriever. He acts like a puppy. Lincoln and him are best buds. Here is my sweet boy giving the dogs their bones :)
And here he is a few months earlier watching TV with Lacey :)
I always had a dog growing up, two to be exact. And I want my children to have dogs as well. And, I'm not going to use my kids as an excuse to get a dog...I really want one as well! It drives me nuts not having one in the house now, especially with Jared away.
What do you think is a good age to get a puppy for your baby?
