Hi Padma, Best of luck for getting the soon to be the most important member of your family ....your pet doggie. Yes, ofcourse our kids will always be our babies however old they maybe .I'm a senior citizen with a 40 year old daughter who is still a baby in both my eyes and DH's too !! But now that she has flown away from the nest our doggies Romeo the Lab and Juju the Basset hound have become our babies now. Looking forward to hearing all about your new pet with pictures too.
