My Husband Became a Pet Parent Too!
Hello friends, today’s post is dedicated to my amazing husband, Sumit, for being a wonderful pet parent. There was a time when he told me that he doesn’t like dogs and has never had a pet before. But he never stopped me from bringing our fur baby home. And then one day, I saw him cuddling and playing with him. Well, I knew he would get there but never thought he would develop fatherly feelings for Caesar this soon. I still remember that day when he said, “He’s not just your son; I am his father too.”
That day my husband became a pet parent from being a pet owner. I know he will not like to hear thanks for being a father, but I really want to tell him that he did great. He was there when Caesar needed a parent!

Being a Pet Parent
In my whole life, I have never met a person who doesn’t like dogs. They may be afraid of them but definitely have a soft corner for these furry beings. So, when I realized that my husband doesn’t feel anything about dogs, I was perplexed. His feelings were neutral.
Well, I believe since he had never experienced that before, he was unaware of his feelings for fur babies. I didn’t force him to love Caesar. But over time, I could see his heart-melting. He loved watching Caesar jumping around & doing silly stunts. Somehow I sensed that Sumit is going to be a wonderful father. And, it was not just for Caesar!
Cutest Father-Son Duo – Pet Owner to being a Pet Parent
It was getting too exhausting for me to tend to Caesar’s needs during my last trimester. Sumit tried to take care of everything, from getting up early morning and taking Caesar for his walk. Then coming back from the office (which was just 15 mins away) during lunchtime to take him for his afternoon walk. And, then again, making sure to reach home on time in the evening to take him to the park because Caesar enjoyed playing with his doggy buddies.
Caesar loved sitting in Sumit’s lap during car rides. Whenever we tried putting him in the backseat, he would jump on his shoulders & irritate him so that he would take him in his lap. That was so cute!
But the most adorable moments were the ones where Sumit tried to teach tricks to Caesar. But Caesar just won’t listen to him. I always felt Caesar did that on purpose to tease Sumit. Oh God, I miss all of that.
Dogs have this amazing power of taking away all your stress and filling your life with happiness. That’s what Caesar was doing to us.
It was December 2015, my 8th month of pregnancy, when we had to send Caesar to my mom’s house for a few months.
Sumit’s parenting got tested when Nemit joined the scene, and we brought Caesar back home in April 2016. We missed Caesar a lot during the last 4 months. But we were too busy with a newborn that we could never express that to him or each other.
Nothing much changed in the routine, but now Sumit had a human baby joining him and Caesar for their walks. And that was my Me Time during the day.
It was a treat to eyes watching them together having fun. Sumit, who had no feelings for dogs, was now raising one as his own son!
