"I'm spoiled as Gracie and Stewie are kind of the best hounds ever. Gracie is so laid back (maybe lazy, LOL) that you can do anything with her, take her anywhere, or put her on anything, and she'll stay put. She got the 'sit and stay' award in her training class." — Jonathan Scott, co-host of Property Brothers and Brother Vs. Brother

The Name Game

"Originally I named Stewie 'Gadget,' but for the first week I had him, he was such a terror that I renamed him 'Stewie' from Family Guy. And when I bought Gracie as a puppy, I wanted a true Chihuahua name. So I tried everything from 'ChiChi' to 'Tequila,' but nothing felt right. Then a friend said she looks like a 'Gracie'...and she was right." — Jonathan Scott, co-host of Property Brothers and Brother Vs. Brother

Doggies in the Window

"Stewie never puts his guard down. He likes to know EVERYTHING that is going on. He follows me around like my shadow and loves it when I hold him upside down and scratch his belly." — Jonathan Scott, co-host of Property Brothers and Brother Vs. Brother

Take Stewie to Work Day

“He sleeps with us every night and takes up the whole bed! He loves when I say, 'Do you want a jelly belly?' He rolls over and puts his legs in the air.” — John Colaneri, co-host of Kitchen Cousins and Cousins Undercover

“Jett (a.k.a. Black Cat or JTK: Jett the Kitty) is our newest member of the family. He is IN LOVE with our dog Shiloh. Anywhere she goes, he goes. Honestly, I think that he thinks that he is a dog. When we take Shiloh out for walks, he beats on the window and screams bloody murder until we bring her back. He waits until she falls asleep and then creeps up next to her to cuddle. Shiloh is not as in love with him, so that is why he's always creeping.” — Anitra Mecadon, host of All-American Handyman and Behind the Build: HGTV Dream Home

Anitra With Shiloh

"Shiloh was rescued from death row. She was redlined and about to be put to sleep in an animal shelter the day we got her. She has always fought for the Alpha position in our house, so don't let her looks fool you. She's a lot like me: sweet when she wants to be, but don't get on her bad side. ;) Shiloh means "Gift From God" in Hebrew, and that's what she is to us. When we brought Shiloh home, our lives changed for the better." — Anitra Mecadon, host of All-American Handyman and Behind the Build: HGTV Dream Home

Anitra With Diggy

"Diggy (a.k.a. - The Infamous D.I.G) is an angel now, but I had to share this photo. It is my all-time favorite photo of what I considered to be my knight in shining armor. He was my love child, my best friend, my trusty steed. I still shed tears at the mention of his name. I know what unconditional love is because of Diggy. Jett came into my life as I had to say goodbye to Diggy. I think it was divine timing. He helped ease the pain of loss with love and craziness." — Anitra Mecadon, host of All-American Handyman and Behind the Build: HGTV Dream Home

There's just something about those cute little wrinkly faces that make English bulldogs totally kissable.

"When I lived in NYC, we would go to Central Park constantly! We would do the loop around the reservoir and run back home. She loves to be outside, so I'm hoping she'll love California living as much as I do." — Sabrina Soto, host of The High Low Project

"Harper is super smart (and I'm not just saying that because she's mine)! She knows how to give a high five and she rings a doorbell if she ever needs to go out." — Sabrina Soto, host of The High Low Project

"We started with dogs. They survived, so then we moved onto having children (kind of a test to see if we would be good parents). Then came the chickens, pigs, rabbits and turtle. There was talk the other day about adding some new members to the Devlin family (maybe some goats, but we will see)." — Jeff Devlin, host of Stone House Revival

Jeff With Daisy Mae and Buttercup

"As far as stories go, I think the most interesting would be trying to potty train two pot-bellied pigs. I had no idea my wife had planned on keeping them in the house, and honestly I didn't even know she was bringing them home that day. I remember learning that they lived 35 years, and I almost passed out when my wife told me. They lived in the house for about a year, cuddled on the couch with the kids, and were pretty much like having two extra dogs (we already had two dogs, so I guess it felt like four). We had been using a Tupperware storage bin for their litter box. When they could no longer fit in the 4' box, we knew it was time to head outside. Our animals are treated better than most humans. They have heat, and if my wife has her way, they will have air conditioning this summer." — Jeff Devlin, host of Stone House Revival

Chicken Selfie

"The chickens stayed in the house for the first month, because they were so fragile. (BTW baby chickens never stop chirping, NEVER!) When they were old enough, we moved them outside to their own coop. I was so nervous and excited when we got our first egg. I remember cracking it onto the frying pan and trying it. I was sure that it was going to taste horrible, or that there would be a couple throwaways since these were the first couple eggs. Well Mother Nature is awesome, and so were those eggs. We get roughly four to six eggs a day, and yes, scrambled eggs are almost always on the breakfast menu. It really has been a great pairing. I feed the chickens, and they feed us." — Jeff Devlin, host of Stone House Revival

A Day on the Farm

"Our animals are a big part of the family and are included in all holiday cards. The kids love to tell the stories. On a warm, sunny day it is definitely a site to see at the Devlin house when the pigs, chickens, dogs and yes, even the turtle, are out playing on our hill." — Jeff Devlin, host of Stone House Revival
