1. The guard of the 2 rooms
@marilyneakin: We had our sweet Chili before our kids. She would sleep on my belly when I was pregnant and on any of us when we were ill. The last few months of her 18 years, she took to sleeping like this between the kids’ rooms.
2. Eyes worth a million words
@mermaidlys: My dog is in love and obsessed with my nephew.
3. Inside my arms
@gaecokayne: Our pit bull guarding our 6 week old. He was rescued from dog fighting, neglect and abuse. So gentle and affectionate. Never a moment of aggression, ever! We lost him to kidney failure a year ago. Dogs are just the best! (And pit bull are my fave!)
4. Can I be his forever sister?
@A2Jess: Just home from the hospital, and Ellie the Dog was already smitten with her new baby brother.
5. I just want to keep her safe
@spicythic: Shuri is still a little too excited and rowdy but she loves her baby sister and is always looking at/for her
6. We’re soulmates!
@techquanimity: This is Smudgie & he was absolutely the BEST cat for 18 mo triplets. He LOVED them from the moment he met them & could sit in the middle of a girls’ slumber party with kids cartwheeling over him and not even flinch. Lost him too soon due to asthma and the steroids to treat it
7. I can be their God Mother!
@avatargrace: This old dog was a nanny to babies and puppies alike
8. Always be by your side
@youphoriia: When my daughter was a newborn, her grandparents dog would always lay next to her pack n play when she napped.
9. Nothing can do us apart
@bethytrain: Oooh I like this! Here’s Aurelia and Walter high-fiving to the beginning of a sort of aloof relationship.
10. I’m a MOBILE phone holder
@AwkwardishPanda: Seger is always willing to dare someone to mess with his human.
11. You are my everything
@anothroregongrl: (Pic from 2011, my son’s first week earth side) Reno promising to die for baby Henri if need be
12. “You are my sunshine! My only sunshine!”
@PaulUKTweeting: Our beautiful cockatiel watching over our equally beauty baby boy!
