A new baby is so exciting for the whole family and that includes your favorite pup.
Make a pregnancy announcement with your dog and all of your friends and family will be over the moon.
Your pup is a major part of the family, and an announcement with a furry friend is so adorable.

This big sister or big brother announcement could easily be adapted for any dog and is oh so sweet. I think the pint-sized dog in this photo makes this picture even cuter!
You could even go further with this and get your dog a big brother/big sister t-shirt! Of course, that only works if your dog will let you dress him up. My dog tries to eat all of the clothes we put on her!

Not everyone has dogs who sit and stay long enough for a cute picture, but you still may want to make a pregnancy announcement with your dog. This shoe and collar announcement is the perfect way to include your favorite furry friends without any begging or treat bribing.
FYI, you don’t have to have beautiful handwriting or chalk on hand. You can add the text in a photo editor. I use PicMonkey because it’s super user-friendly, even if you have zero graphics talent.
