Furry Friends Linky Party
I am SO excited to be linking up with Sandy at Soaring Through Second Grade. Since my husband and I don’t have kids yet, our puppy is like our baby. We spoil him, discipline him, and love talking about him to anyone that will listen! I often have to hold myself back from saying “Hey! My Teddy does that too!” when people are telling stories about their kids because I realize that people may not be thrilled about their child being compared to my dog.
Sandy is keeping this party educational by asking us to discuss something we’ve learned from our pet. I would say the biggest thing I learned from my pet is what it feels like to be a parent. It can be difficult to view school situations from a parent’s point of view since I don’t have kids. I would often get frustrated with parents for not supporting classroom discipline or being reluctant to accept what I was telling them about their child’s classroom behavior/learning. I know it sounds weird, but now that I have a dog I understand how it feels to have someone that you love and see the best in and having to take advice from professionals who may not recognize how wonderful that loved one is, despite their behavior. I know that my parent communication will continue to improve as I have my own children, but for now I am content learning to understand through the eyes of my adorable puppy Teddy.
These are pictures of our wonderful 9 month-old Boxer puppy named Teddy. He is playful, sweet, energetic, and loving. These pictures were taken at the photo shoot that my hubby and I had for our 1 year anniversary back in February.
