It’s a Dog’s Life… and we love it!

If you have a dog in your life, then you understand that dogs are truly our best friends. From the moment a dog enters our life, we are never quite the same! In October 2011, we rescued our little Yorkie and our family has never been the same. There’s just something about knowing that your new dog is a part of your forever family! So, to celebrate these furry four-legged family members, I’ve invited my friends, family and blog friends to share some pictures of their kids and dogs. Get ready for cuteness overload, because you are guaranteed to find something to smile about today in this post!
