12 Paw-Some Ways to Announce Your Pregnancy With Your Dog
Pregnancy announcements can be funny, simple, or over-the-top; but when you include your furry friend, they are always extra cute. For many new parents, the family dog truly feels like the firstborn child, so incorporating Fido in the sharing of pregnancy news is essential.
These days, there are so many unique and fun ways to incorporate your dog in your pregnancy announcement: Just make sure to snap a ton of pictures, because you will want the outtakes to laugh at later (trust us!).
