Finding the Happy - Doggies and Babies

I adore the way my dogs have changed since the childrens have joined our lives. ODB has always had anxiety issues. He has spent much of his life as a very unhappy puppy because of it. Since the ladies have arrived, he feels like he has a mission. He is especially attached to Zofia. He is ALWAYS there. When she wakes up, he is the first responder. When it's bed time, he stays at her side until she is asleep. When she cries, he looks at me and says "Hey! Lady! The tiny loud one is upset!" (He may not say it, but it's implied.)He makes me love him so.

Zoe has been Athena's best friend. She takes the wrestling, body painting, and riding like a champ. They have provided an endless amount of entertainment for me, as well as starred in some great videos to share with others.

Here's an old-skool Zoe and Athena video:

I can't imagine life without kids and dogs. The combination makes me very, very happy. :)
