How our family life went to the dog(s), part one

How our family life went to the dog(s), part one

With five children in three schools, plus activities, appointments, and work, my husband and I didn’t think our lives were crazy enough. So, we bought a dog.

Meet Lola Rose Renshaw! The cutest, fluffiest, sassiest puppy in all of the motherhood. Good thing she’s cute.

Not just any dog, mind you. I may be biased, but I think our Lola Rose is the cutest little puppy ever. And it’s a good thing, too. Because I know for a fact that she’s been (more or less) absolved of a myriad puppy sins based on sheer cuteness alone.

While I don’t subscribe to the “fur baby/fur Mommy” culture that’s exploded in recent years, I understand how and why hyper-attachment to furry companions is a real temptation.

  1. She’s so cute, Heather!

    This is about to be our life and while I’m so excited I almost can’t stand it, I’m also trying to temper it with a healthy dose of reality re: having a “newborn” in the House again… trying to brace myself for all the sleepless nights and puppyproofing that comes with territory. So this was a very timely read.

    And definitely appreciate the sentiment that these fluffy family memebers help shave time off purgatory while also helping us learn to love in a whole new way. Congrats!

    1. Ohhhh, Megan! I am so happy to hear that your family, too, is expanding in this way, despite the difficulties! The other day, a friend told me her dog had passed away, and I immediately thought of you and about dear Samson and how much joy he brought your family for so many years. Only since adopting this little fluff ball do I finally understand why people get so attached to their dogs (having never had one). Thank you for taking the time to comment; it is so lovely hearing from you. Miss you, friend. Looking forward to seeing those puppy photos. Praying for a smooth transition. 😉
