Claire's Best Friends

I love dogs, but sometimes I look at my two giant canines and wonder what they bring to my house besides a mind-boggling amount of fur, regular $500+ vet bills, and a constant need for attention and love and space.

But then, I see this:





and I think okay, you've paid your rent.

(Flashback: Toddler Landon and his puppies.)


  1. Priceless!!!!! Is Claire's hair turning more blonde than red? She is ADORABLE!!!!

  2. And they will earn their keep even more when your little ones get bigger and want to go for walks by themselves. Having a large size dog beside a kid can be priceless.

    I don't know if kids still do paper routes these days but when I was 12 or so I took over my brother's route. I always took Prince with me and my Mom told me later that she never worried about me because she knew there was no way he would ever let anyone touch me. We lived in a semi-rural nice subdivision and this was .... gasp ... 30 + years ago but there were a couple of occasions when I was glad to have him with me. And he was also quite good at taking care of little yappy annoying dogs. :D
