When we lost our pup Ryker in November I was devastated. I had been dreaming of the day when he would protect and love on our baby boy like he did with my niece. The two would grow up being best buds. After many prayers and late night talks, we decided to start looking for another male as we knew we wanted to be a family of 5 when baby was born. After many phone calls and interviews with breeders, Coulter was referred to Ash. She had a 9 month male that she knew would be a fit for our growing family.
I'm sure I bugged the heck out of both of them with my repetitive questions about Bingo Von Nadar - is he cuddly? Does he like kids? Is he affectionate? How does he show affection? Will he let me spoon him? Will he be gentle with our baby? Will he (insert every question an emotional pregnant 25 year old could imagine to ask).
Ash was so kind to answer every. Single. One of them. Ryker will never be replaced. Ever. It's impossible to replace any pet. There was a hole in our hearts and we closed it with the compatible, cuddly, loving, affectionate, protective boy that we were wanting.
From the day we brought our newborn Beckett home, Bingo von Nadar "Kylo" has followed wherever Beckett goes. He sits right at our feet as we change his diaper. He checks on us when we're in the nursery. When I get up with him in the middle of the night, Kylo is there to make sure we're all okay. When we are home alone, he makes sure I know when there's a knock on the door, the garage door is opened, and even when the dryer is done drying clothes... He is on guard. Kylo has bonded with our family in an incredible way. He brings so much joy to our life and keeps us on our toes! Thank you Ash for our big head boy! We love him so much.
