We are both animal lovers, so when we combined households, we ended up with a bunch of pets, several farm animals, and a couple of exotics that remain in terrariums. (Chad is a science teacher after all). We don’t own a TV, but spend time every day having “puppy parties” and watching “kitty TV.” Our animals are endless sources of affection and amusement for us. Having 9 animals in the house you’d think would be a little chaotic but strangely, it works. Kristina once had a dream of having dogs and cats that would cuddle up together. That dream has come true!
