I'm thankful for my dog, Daisy!
She was our first "baby" and we love her so much! Have actual babies definitely changes that dynamic some but we still love to cuddle with her on the couch after we put Ben and Ainsley to bed. She really has a way of comforting us too. When I was sick recently she laid in bed with me and stayed glued to my side. She is great with the babies and likes to try to sneak in a face lick if she can. She'll often do it while she is walking by one of them on the floor and we call it a drive-by licking.
Also, she cleans up most of the food the babies drop on the floor so she really earns her keep now. :)
