A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than he loves himself

This post is going to be a little bit of me venting. 
I'm frustrated.

 When John and I got our pets, it wasn't a 'for right now' thing. 
Nothing makes my blood boil like the question,
 'but what are you going to do with them when you have kids?'

That's like asking someone 'what are you going to do with 
your first child after your second child comes?'
 Absurd, right? 

We don't exchange our family out, we add to it. 

So when I see posts on Craigslist that say they need to give their dog up 
because they're moving or they're having a baby or they're going to school
and don't have time for the pet, it drives me crazy.

When you made that commitment to adopt the pet, you made that commitment for life.  

So to answer that annoying question. 
We don't do anything with our pets when life changes for us. 
If we come across any obstacles 
we address it and adapt.
 But that does not include giving them up.
We made the same commitment to them 
as we made to each other on 
our wedding day.

And we 100% plan on keeping both of those commitments

Such cuddle bugs <3
