We Love Puppies!
This blog uses affiliate links. Please read my disclosure policy.
Our “puppy” is an old man now, but we’ve had him since he was a wee little 6-week-old rescue pup, and our whole family has loved him ever since. The grandparents even call him their granddog, and they spoil him as much as they spoil the other grandkids.
This is our little guy when we first got him, and our kids made him a dog house out of Legos.
They’ve all grown up so much together since then. Having a puppy has been a wonderful experience for my kids and has taught them responsibility as they’ve all taken on care-taking roles over the years. Now almost 11 years old, our little ball of fur suffers from arthritis and has to take daily pain meds. The kids each have jobs: feeding, walking, cleaning out bowls, brushing, giving medicine, and just loving on him. He repays us with unconditional love and devotion, and he fiercely protects us from the doorbell, school buses, and UPS trucks.
