Gunnar, the English Bulldog, has always been the only child in the Ropiak family. Gunnar did not have anyone else except for his fur dad Tim Ropiak, and his mom, Samantha Kristia Smith.
Most dogs enjoy running outside while raining and jumping in puddles, but Gunnar does not. Gunnar is not like any other dog because he enjoys relaxing in his home, and does not enjoy sleeping on the hardwood floor unless there is a fire in the fireplace.

Gunnar acts like a big baby, but it all changed when his human baby brothers came into the picture. Samantha would even have to drag the old Gunnar out just so her dog could do his business outside.
Now that Gunnar got promoted to becoming a big brother to Wyatt, Lachlan, and Rowan, he slowly became a responsible dog that he was always meant to be. Gunnar became sensitive to his surroundings, and would often keep a close watch on his fur mom.
Samantha shared with The Dodo that Gunnar was the first one to know that she was expecting a baby. Gunnar loved lying beside Samantha’s bump and feel the baby kick.
Gunnar knew that Wyatt and Lachlan were his brothers when the two babies came home from the hospital. It was as if Gunnar knew that both Wyatt and Lachlan are babies because of how gentle he is towards them.
Samantha recalled that Gunnar even taught Wyatt how to climb the stairs. Gunnar guided and stood behind Wyatt to make sure that he would not fall off the stairs.
Gunnar took his babysitting duties seriously, especially when his mom is busy cooking and had to leave the baby alone in the swing. Gunnar kept them company while waiting for their mom to finish making their meals.
Gunnar loves doing everything that his brothers are doing, including playing basketball, sitting on their dad’s lap, and even taking baths. Samantha knows that Gunnar is not going to be in their lives forever, but she always shows her appreciation to Gunnar every chance she gets.
