Dogs & Kids

Two of the cutest things in the world are little kids and dogs. While my hubby was out walking our dogs today he ran into a very little girl who was out for a walk with her mom.  The rest of the story is hilarious.

We have two dogs, so hubby was walking them one at a time.  First up was our Jack Russell Terrier, Piglet.  Piglet is about 15 pounds.  Hubby and Piglet were walking around the block when they ran across the little girl and her mom walking the opposite direction.  Piglet is very excitable, as Jack Russells tend to be, so she just immediately went into wiggling, squirming, licking, mode. It was probably a little overwhelming for the little girl, but she handled it well.


After they finished their walk, hubby drops Piglet off at the house and leashes up our Australian Shepherd, Fancy.  Fancy is about 85 pounds.  The two of them walk off on the same route, and a little while later they came across the same little girl and her mom.  The little girl’s eyes got wide, and with a voice full of wonderment she said “Mister, your dog grew up fast!”.


Is that not the sweetest, funniest kid/dog story?


  1. Awww that is so cute! Kids are so funny. And your fur babies are precious! We have to mini Aussies...they are the best dogs! :)

    1. Thanks so much! The Aussie was my father-in-law's & we adopted her when he passed. It amazes me how well they have both gone from being only dogs to having a sister.

  2. Awww. That story is too cute! We have three dogs and often have to walk them in two groups, so I always wonder what people think about us walking around the same route!

  3. Thanks! I think they are pretty adorable, but I'm kind of biased. :-)
