Dogs and a Baby: Why no one is going up for adoption.

When Jake and I went public with our pregnancy, nothing went quite like we expected.  One of the most shocking issues was the number of people who asked when we were going to get rid of our dogs.  Some offered to take them for us (thanks I guess...?) but many felt we should just drop… Continue reading Dogs and a Baby: Why no one is going up for adoption.

One more surgery down!

The wee prince is now 6 weeks old and will be 7 on Friday.  He's totally perfect in every way which, as you know from my last post, is a huge relief as we were still waiting for a final brain scan to be sure things were really healed up.
