A wee while ago a friend came over with her dogs. Our little girl hasn't spent much time with animals given that we lived in the city until recently. I was really excited when these furry friends turned up.
Her slight reservation turned to glee in no time at all. The dogs were ever so patient and let her play with their ears and even tail at one point. I loved seeing how gentle and caring she was with them - well as gentle as an almost two year old can be!
We would love to have her grow up with animals in her life, and are working ourselves up to the idea of having some around. It is unlikely we will have a dog however, so we welcome all visitors of the friendly, furry variety to come and play.
Do you have pets?
How have you managed to keep their hair out of your fabric stash? Is the extra work and expense worthwhile in terms of the pleasure your children get from them?
I would love to hear from you...
