Little One

Posted in Showcase by


K, this is why I so love connecting on Instagram with you, cherished Active Mom reader. Can you believe how heartwarmingly sweet this photo is? Our Mama reports that this is a regular occurrence and that these two are fast friends, together all the time. Could it be any more dear? Mom says this photo is:

Our little one and her furry sibling.  These two are quite inseparable. I think it has something to do with the trail of snacks she leaves everywhere, but regardless, they have quite a friendship! 🙂 

You can read more of what Mom Linsday writes over on the Scottsdale Moms Blog where she is a regular contributor.

    Our boys love taking our dog for walks and to the dog park! It helps keep our family active and helps teach them about responsibility and caring for animals.

      My kid loves to throw the ball with my aunt’s dog, and feed her bones throughout the whole day, even though my aunt may not be keen on the bones every hour…hehe

    I told my kiddos that we can’t get a pet until everyone is potty trained.

    My son enjoys carrying food form the dog dish to wherever the dog is laying and giving him kibble one piece at a time.

    We too love our shadows… I mean cats. 🙂 It’s hard to do anything without them being involved, really! Truly they are a part of our family.

    That is so dear! It reminds me of my own dog I grew up with. My kids don’t have a pet, but they love animals. They enjoy going on walks with me so they can greet the neighbors’ pets.

      Same here! And when we are driving we have a “Cute dog alert!” we call out whenever we see a sweet pup on a walk with its owner.

    We recently lost two of our doggies, so we now have one. It is so hard to let them go, but now our little one has gotten old enough to help & closer with our only pet. She loves to feed her, go for walks and give her check ups like Doc McStuffins does.

    We have a 10 yo hyper jack Russel. She doesn’t like to do much so we take her on lots of walks.

    Our black Lab died almost 18 months ago. We had him before kids, so all 3 of our kids knew him from birth. I never realized how much they loved him until the day we had to say goodbye. My son keeps a picture of the moment right by his bed.

    We LOVE animals! We have 3 cats right now. We got one as a kitten when my first son was 3 months old. We named him Linus (after the Charlie Brown character that takes his blanket everywhere) because he follows him everywhere, still to this day!

    We have 2 rescue pups, 1 rescue turtle. My dogs sleep with my kids, and are very protective of them. My oldest had some issues reading out loud, si would read to our older dog. It gave him so much confidence!

      That is so wonderful to hear – especially about the gaining confidence by reading out loud to your dog! Sounds like your house is wonderful place to be! If you are on Instagram, @activemomsblog us in your photos so we can see all your amazing rescue pets – we would love that!

    They love to go outside and play with our dogs. They also like to observe our tank animals and hold our guinea pig. Animals are loved at this house.

    We raise chickens and barn cats. So my 18 month old daughter loves to carry the cats and play in the yard with the chickens.
