(Picture taken Nov. 2009, when Will was one month)
My parents are in town visiting. I’m always so excited to see them, but now that Will is here the excitement has increased tenfold. It’s just so much fun to see their reactions to all the new things that Will can do and how much he’s grown.
I also love seeing the dogs’ reactions to my parents. They get so excited to see “Grandma and Grandpa”. Zoey whines and jumps up and down, Leroy runs around with his tail wagging, and Stella barks… and barks and barks . My parents are so good about giving the dogs equal attention because technically they were their first “grandkids”.
It’s funny to think about when we first got Zoey… my parents were shocked. It didn’t take long for them to fall in love with her though. And then, when we rescued Leroy, they had a lot of questions. “Could we afford another dog?” “How would we travel with two dogs?” “How would Zoey react to another dog given that she was used to being our one and only?” Again, Leroy quickly stole their hearts and became part of the family. Lastly, when we decided to rescue Stella, they thought we were just plain off our rockers. Now my dad is her favorite “fetch partner” and my mom gives her kisses and cuddles just like the other two.
So this leads me to the question of the week:
How did/do your parents react to your dog(s)?
