I know I have shared how much we love our 4 legged members of our family but honesty who could not love these dogs. They act just like 4 more of our kids. They are so much a part of the family and give and give and give to all of us. The 2 new puppies, Sadie and Emma have been wonderful. We have not had any issues with the kids wanting to take care of them, walk them even with the team of 2 kids whose responsibility it is to get up the earliest to walk and feed the pups in the am.. This chore changes weekly and the teams of 2 never have an issue getting up and doing it. I think the kids just love these dogs and get so much love back they would not think of not taking care of them.
