I always thought my “little” family was complete.
Michael and Dozer are my world and will always be and I never wanted to add to it or take away from it.
You may be thinking, “Dozer is just a dog, he’s not a person?”
Wrong, he is a person, he is my first child. He was my first responsibility, my best friend. He got me through the toughest times and was with me when no one else was. He loves me the way a person would. He waits for me to get home, sleeps with me under the covers and loves the same foods I do and even looks like me! He is my son. He is preparing me for real motherhood.
Just when I thought my boys were enough, a baby girl got thrown in the mix. Daisy is a blue nose pit bull and was supposed to be my parents dog but the moment she put her paws in our house, Michael and I fell in love.
Daisy immediately attached to us and will not leave our side. Even though she is just a puppy Michael treats her like a real baby. He calls her his “baby girl” and “princess” and keeps saying “Watch out for the baby!” It is honestly the most adorable thing in the world.
Dozer is still warming up to her, but he’ll get there eventually. He didn’t like Bhodi very much when he first came home but now they don’t leave each others side.
Seeing Michael interact with Daisy makes me really hopeful for the future. I have always been afraid to even think of wanting children and now that we are getting married, that’s basically our next step. Not for a while! But you get what I mean.
Knowing that Michael will be my partner for the rest of my life makes be so happy and really puts my heart at ease because I know that parenthood for the both of us with be an awesome learning experience. Believe me I don’t think dogs are nearly as hard as children but they are hard work and a big responsibility as well.
Daisy has already got comfortable with the house and already knows that outside is where we potty. She knows where her toys go and where they go when she is down with them. She is learning so quickly and is getting bigger and more beautiful everyday.
Can’t wait for more days with Daisy – 8 weeks old
