Puppies from the same litter usually don’t end up together in forever families.
Some do, and those are definitely considered to be blessed.
Growing up with your own sibling, sharing the same interests, and playing the way only siblings play is just too precious for dogs.
Norman and Annabelle can call themselves ‘the luckiest dogs ever’ because they grew up right next to each other.
From being buddies since they were inside their mommy, Norman and Annabelle never realized life could be lived without each other.
The day they were born was one of the luckiest days ever, despite the fact it was Friday, the 13th.
Norman and Annabelle were simply born under a lucky star, and here’s their heartwarming story to prove it.
Friday The 13th Pitties
Bobby Keane and his wife, Danni, from Maryland, knew their life together was about to change.
Because they took in a pregnant Pitbull girl who was just a week away from giving birth.
It was a huge responsibility, but the couple knew they had to react and give that mommy and her puppies a chance to survive.
Sure enough, one week later, the big litter of 12 puppies arrived into their new Maryland home.
Taking care of one dog is already a big job, but imagine raising a dozen smol puppers and their mom.
Bobby and Danni said they don’t want to keep any of them. Easier said than done. Some of those puppies were too darn cute and the couple couldn’t say no.
Enter their lives, Norman and Annabelle, the BFF siblings.
As always, boys have their mommies, and little girls become daddy’s girls. That’s just the way things roll. Norman instantly clicked with Danni and her daughter, while Annabelle picked another family member.
Ever since she turned three weeks of age, Annabelle connected with her hooman dad, Bobby. They created a special bond when Annabelle fell asleep on daddy’s shoulder one night.
The habit was formed: daddy’s shoulder became Annabelle’s favorite napping spot.

“One night when Annabelle was 3 weeks old, Bobby picked her up and put her on his shoulder, and she fell asleep. It became a regular thing after that. They bonded in that moment. He’s never tried to stop her from doing it. There will be times when she gets a little overbearing, and he makes her move until she calms down, but once she does, she comes back and falls asleep on his shoulder.”, said Danni.
This is the video that launched Annabelle and her brother into the world of canine celebrities.

Daddy’s girl will always be daddy’s girl! She may be big, but she’s still a pupper in her heart.
Bobby and Danni never planned on becoming famous, nor did they insist on launching their dogs into the world of social media pawlebrities. One thing simply led to another and people loved their short videos they took as memories.
“We never know what is going to go viral, LOL. We have never been social media people, and we never would have thought we’d be running a social media account for our dogs, but here we are. We don’t take it too seriously. We do it for fun. It’s our way of making a video diary of sorts of our lives with our dogs. It’s something sweet we will be able to look back on once they’ve passed.”
The three-year-old Little Monsters, as they call them on Instagram and TikTok, have quite a fanbase. Everything these pups do becomes a viral video, and the online community loves seeing their daily adventures.
Whether it comes to playing with a huge ball…
…or simply giving dad support while he’s working
“Their day-to-day lives are pretty structured. They are still pretty young and have a lot of energy, so we do mental stimulation activities with them every day. We also like to take them on adventures, whether it’s going to a park, hiking trail, or renting a SniffSpot.”
Aren’t they the luckiest pups, ever? Having such loving hooman pawrents is a blessing. Norman and Annabelle grew up into caring doggos, pawfect examples of their species. This couple of American Bullies couldn’t be happier for living their lives with Bobby and Danni.
Family… because it’s not the most important thing… it’s everything!
