The Dog Days of Summer - Megan

Hi, I'm Megan! I blog over at Hello Newlywed Life, where the posts are filled with family, food, fun & lots of lovin'. I'm a Mom and wife first, but I also work full-time & own and design at DolceAve jewelry on the side.  I'm thrilled to be here blogging for Sara while she's (maybe) having baby Mim right now (or tomorrow).  Wishing her lots of luck! 

As busy and chaotic as our life is, we love making time to do things together as a family, which also includes out 3 year old shih tzu, Vinny. He is our first born and the sweetest little guy.
After our daughter Sofia was born, Vinny would act out by grabbing and sucking on every pacifier he could find, it was too cute to get mad & I can't count how many paci's we've had to buy! 
The two of them have created such a strong bond over the past year and a half, Sofia is obsessed with him, every time we leave the house she yells "BYE Do-da (he has about 10 nicknames, you know how it goes!), LUB YOU!"

And he can usually be found laying in her chair, which creates quite the war! ;)
Our favorite things to do as a family is getting out on long walks, we love exploring new trails in our neighborhood. Sofia usually asks "Do-da ride?" and Vinny jumps shotgun in a second. 
When I was pregnant, I never thought for a second we would forget about Vinny, but the truth is, my Mom brain is mush. Mike has stepped up to be the main care provider for him, while I provide lots of treats & cuddles. ;) I love that he fills our lives with so much joy, he really is like a brother to Sofia!
How has life changed for the pooch in your world, once your little one arrived?


  1. So sweet! I love that he likes to sit in Sophia's chair! I think Rocky would try that too, if he could fit his 100lb body in there!

  2. That picture of the dog with the pacifier in his mouth is priceless!!! So adorable!!

  3. Aww, good Vinny. Baxter our 7 yr old shih tzu is not as thrilled with the children :( Glad to hear the V and S have a great bond!

  4. Haha, I love that he would take her pacifiers - great photo! :)

  5. Love the paci photo! Adorable.

  6. I'm not sure what I love more the dog with the paci or the dog shotgun on the BOB! Such sweet photos and love that your dog and daughter get along!
