i didn't mention this little dog's help in my labor + delivery post. this precious labrador retriever was by my side every.single.second. she was diligent in providing comfort and protection. she snuggled when needed, and kept out of my way when needed! she's uber protective of maddy and i - more than before. she took special care of us and i really appreciated it! and isn't she just the cutest?!?! thanks pepper :).
