Meet these high school sweethearts who love to spoil their dog!

Pets: Avery (our VERY spoiled boxer)
Digs: 2500 sq ft, 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath home
How They Met: They're high school sweethearts. "We had mutual friends and I officially called "dibs" on John before I knew his name," says Paige. "We dated six years before tying the knot and the rest is history!"
Careers: Paige is a 5th grade teacher and John is a design engineer.
Biggest Pet Peeves: Paige: "Everything has to be put away before bed. Otherwise the next day starts off on the wrong foot." John: "When the laundry doesn't get put away and I have to go in search of pants!"
Down time: Paige is getting her graduate degree, so down time doesn't really exist for her! When she does relax, she loves to unwind with crafts (she owns her own Etsy store). John loves all things motorized: 4 wheelers, cars, trucks, and even small machines are a huge passion of his.
Guilty Pleasures: Paige has a "need" for fancy coffee at least once a week. John eats ice cream EVERY night! Says Paige: "He has actually claimed that he works out to support his eating habits!"
Nick names: John calls Paige "babe" and Paige calls John "Linde" (which is a shortened version of their last name).
