Every good story deserves an introduction and this is ours.
We are a family made up of three humans and four pets.
Yes, four pets.
The best gang.
There isn’t really a grand story to our family. It’s simple.
Dan and I, we met online and the timing was perfect. We started dating, I gave him a dachshund and eight months into our relationship we got engaged. Only to find out two months later I was five weeks pregnant. It was exciting to know we were about to be parents to a little someone in the future. As we waited for my belly to get bigger and the motherly instincts were kicking in, I encountered a stray who I couldn’t turn away. I picked her up and brought her home with me. Weeks later, by our surprise, we had a litter in our hands. Last thing you know, we adopted one of the puppies into our home and made us a family of five, soon-to-be six with the baby and all. Valentine’s Day was around the corner and my ankles got bigger, stomach got wider and breast got larger. As the day of flowers and chocolates arrived, my husband surprised me with dog number four, my dream dog. A labradoodle. A month later I popped out a baby and here we are. A family of seven.
