I love our puppy Nugget so much! And I believe he loves us just as much if not more than we love him. As much as our 10 yr old daughter wants to be his Mama, he totally views her as his sibling. He will just sit at the end of her bed waiting for her to play with him. Then each night he drags his dog bed as close as he can to her bed to sleep. As much as I love that guy I am still a cat lady at heart. Still hoping to some day add a cat to the mix. I am rocking one of my favorite cat shirts ever today. A cat as Bob Ross....genius!
