As I begin my first blog post, Javier, our youngest munchkin comes to me to pick him up. He is now seated on my lap as I type this post. I am thinking of the many things I want to blog about. For this post though, it will be about dogs.
I really love dogs. I like animals in general but I really love dogs. I didn't know this until Lorenzo came into our lives. Well, actually Daniel surprised me with Lorenzo one day. Somewhere between Lorenzo peeing and puking on me, (poor puppy was scared and had never been in a car), and him sleeping in my arms on our couch, I fell in love with him and realized I had been missing out on a life with dogs. He was a little, fluffy white dog.
Nine months later, we were excited to bring Daisy home. Raising Lorenzo was a dream, so having two doggies would be twice the fun! Lorenzo would have a playmate when we were working and I'd have a dog to hold in my arms when Daniel was holding Lorenzo. Plus, we now had a girl! Daisy is her daddy's little girl and as our only girl, she is our princess. Lorenzo definitely didn't share the same opinion at first when he had to start sharing his food and his plush bed, but over the years, they've become inseparable. Sometimes, they like to go under the bed and sleep together. A match made in heaven or what?!
It should be no surprise then that we ended up having three dogs. Maybe not. When we tell people that we have three dogs though, all of them if not most, think we are crazy. They ask why we got a third dog, but most end up understanding why after they spend just a minute with Javier. He is too cute and very charming. Perhaps this made Daisy and Lorenzo a little jealous when we brought him home. They didn't warm up to Javier right away, but it's been wonderful to see them bond over the years. Lorenzo likes to nap with Javier and Daisy chases him to play with her. They make a great pack!
Well, it's currently 13°C outside, sunny and not a breeze of wind. Perfect weather for a walk with the doggies...
