Toddlers And Their Dogs: 25 Adorable Friendships

This is our pup, Tucker. Our toddler wore her out.

 

We love our ol’ girl, Tucker.  She’s half German-Shepherd, half Collie and a total sassy-pants.  My husband and I rescued her over five years ago when she was a puppy with floppy ears and she quickly became our “first baby.”  We took her everywhere (even vacation!) and attended training classes and made homemade treats.  When I became pregnant with our son, we followed all the “expert advice” on preparing Tuck for the new addition and while there has been some jealousy, she has adapted beautifully.

It’s wonderful having a pup – she and Harrison chase each other in the backyard and she patiently puts up with his death-grip hugs while we remind him that tails and ears are not for pulling and NO, HARRISON! DO NOT POKE HER IN THE EYE!  NO, TUCKER!  DO NOT KNOCK HIM OVER!

But there is nothing better than watching their relationship blossom and we are so thankful to have our four-legged friend.

I asked folks on my Facebook page to send in pictures of their tots and dogs and oh my! the cute!  Check out these best friends:
