I want to hear from anyone and everyone who has a lot of dogs, that's 3 or more and has had a baby (as in human baby.) The reason I am asking this is because my husband and I have soon to be 4 dogs...we love dogs. I show my pugs in AKC conformation as my hobby, but most of all, our dogs are a huge part of our family. We also want to have children eventually. This does NOT mean that I would ever stop showing my dogs, keeping my dogs, or loving my dogs, but everytime my family hears of us getting a new K9 family member all they say is the famous..."aren't you ever going to have kids?" OR, I get the "you think your dogs are your top priority, just wait till you have a baby, that will all change!" I guess after all this negative talk I get a little frusterated. I want both and I plan on having both. I realize it may be a little harder, but it would be well worth it. Nothing gets me more heated then people who abandon their dogs after having children So if there is anyone out there that sucessfully does both, and maybe even competes with their dogs WHILE HAVING CHILDREN, I would LOVE to hear from you so I can finally hear some positive feedback on the subject. Thanks!!
