Fur Baby Friday: Moments with the Mays

I am so excited about today's guest post! I have known Laura for as long as I can remember. We grew up in the same neighborhood and at least half of my wardrobe growing up was Laura's hand-me-downs. So it was really special when she offered to let me wear her veil on my wedding day! 

Laura is the epitome of a good dog-mom, and I guarantee you will love all of her babies! 

Hey y'all! I'm Laura from Moments with the Mays. I've known Julie since we were both little. Our moms are great friends and I am the same age as her brother, Matt! We actually went to quite a few high school dances together. :) Julie asked me to do a guest post for her new series about furbabies and I happily accepted! I love my furbabies! 
Let me start by introducing you to my three sweet pups...

JACK - He was my first baby. He was born on August 2, 2004. I walked into a pet store my sophomore year of college and about died when I saw him. Jack was the teeniest chihuahua I had ever seen! It was love at first sight and he was my instant sidekick. His real name is Jacques Cartier Moore May (no worries, y'all...Ben adopted him after we got married. Ha!) but I keep it simple with "Jack." He rules the roost, has super high anxiety, is quite high maintenance, and has more personality than 100 dogs combined.

HUDSON - Hudson was a neighborhood stray during my senior year (part deux) at Ole Miss. We had lots of them but he was the only one that was a) not super skiddish and b) not aggressive. Huddy was so skinny when he started hanging around our house. My roommates & I gave him water and started feeding him random food from our kitchen. Then, we made a pallet on our porch and he slept there every single night. I convinced Ben to keep him in his backyard when our neighbors threatened to take him to the local high-kill shelter. Hudson had an embedded collar when we first found him & has a nasty throat scar that proves his tough puppy life. Huddy is the most gentle & loving dog I've ever met. Love his heart!

ELLIE - Ben & I walked in to Petsmart one Saturday to pick up dog food. We left with Ellie. (Note to self: never get dog food on Saturdays.) We could have spotted her a mile a way...she looked just like Hudson. It was her last chance at adoption & I couldn't handle the guilt of knowing she would be put we took her home! Ellie & Hudson were instant best friends and have been attached at the hip ever since. Ellie is our wild child. She has a lot of energy & keeps Hudson busy running around in the backyard. Ellie is my baby girl and loves to sneak up on the couch to snuggle. She completed our furry family!
I love all of my dogs. They really are like my children. Ben & I had our first baby, Grayson, last September. I was so worried about how all the dogs would react. Would they be jealous? Would they be sad? Would they act aggressive? I was stressed.

Y'all? My dogs are rockstars. They have adjusted to this new life with a baby brother so well. All 3 have behaved well & not really acted jealous...Hudson in particular. Hudson loves his baby.  When Julie asked me to guest post I immediately knew I wanted to talk about Huddy and his boy.

Grayson already has such a strong bond with Hudson. Watching the 2 of them interact & seeing how much Hudson adores my baby boy melts my heart. They are truly best friends. Hudson is the first to run to G's door when he cries. Hudson is the first dog to run in the nursery every morning to greet Grayson. When we walk through the door G get the biggest smile on his face as soon as he sees his buddy, Hudson. It reminds me so much of the relationship I had with my childhood dog, Maggie. I know that Grayson will have that same relationship with Hudson & that makes my heart happy. 
Okay, that's all I've got! I hope I didn't bore you guys...I love to brag on my kids--furry or not! If you want to see some more cute pictures of "puppy love," head on over to my blog! Thanks Julie for having me! :)


Laura, seeing Hudson and Grayson together is seriously the sweetest thing! I love that they are truly best friends :) Thanks so much for the beyond adorable pictures!

Bless your heart, your story about Hudson nearly made me cry! I just picked up a second rescue on impulse 2 weeks ago - I tell you, I have to be careful around those rescue groups or I'll end up on animal hoarders!

I loved this post ~ two of my favorite girls in one place! Laura, all your babies (human and fur) are precious! The pictures of Grayson & Hudson just melt my heart. Hudson will definitely be Grayson's "Maggie". P.S. It was always like Christmas at our house after you and your mom would clean out your closets :)
