I have found that when I am stressed though, my dogs are always there to cheer me up. I know this might sound strange if you aren't a dog person, but these two babies are little clowns. They always seem to just know when I need some cheering up, and they always manage to make me laugh.
I've introduced my babies before, but it's been awhile, so I'll introduce them again. First is Batman, our 3 year old French Bulldog. We've had him since he was a puppy, and he has moved across the country and back with us. He's my first dog, and I he has convinced me that dogs are awesome!
Then we have Daphne. She is a two year old American Staffordshire terrier that we rescued (or maybe it's the other way around?) . We got her in February from the West Los Angeles Animal Shelter. She is the happiest and most eager to please dog that I have ever met.
I must say, even when times are tough, I am a very lucky lady.
