He's a sweet, eager-to-please labrador retriever.
And he has completely turned my life upside down.
There's a reason why babies and puppies are so cute. And there have been many days--and nights---when I've thought a baby would have been a lot easier.
That's Aidan above with Duke. When the lack of sleep, the constant vigilance (to make sure he's not chewing a shoe, being hurt by/hurting our youngest, or peeing in the house) starts to get to me, I watch Aidan with Duke and know the time was right.
Because no one loves you like your dog loves you.
