This is my cousin Paul
Reflecting on this idea, I watched my puppy Pele' take a poop (which is a rare sight, as he's a shy pooper), and laughed, because i've learned so much from him and now his little (but BIG) brother Buck. You might still be wondering why I was talking about Pele' pooping and its all about communication. Pele' and Buck tell me when they are hungry, when they need to go out, when they want their belly rubbed, when they want to snuggle and when they're excited to go on a walk. COMMUNICATION. It takes intuition and attention from all parties to communicate. Which leads me to...(drum roll please)....family dynamics! Dogs are pack animals and have totally reinforced what my parents always told me growing up. "Family first."
Our puppies have taught me how to be responsible for someone else, as they depend on me. I'm very grateful I have Rebecca to help us all live lovingly together. Teamwork!! I'm certainly glad to have her on my team! Between the four of us under one roof, I've finally learned why my parents always told me "family first."
We all have two families in life. The family we were born into, and the family we create.
Without further adue, let me introduce you to the family I am creating. My beautiful fiance' and our puppies.
Our Puppy Pele'
Our puppy Buck...short for Buckminster...long for Buuu!
What have you learned from your puppies???
Peace and Blessings,
