We had my son’s girlfriend & her 2 kids over for dinner tonight. It was so much fun to watch Cooper, the Vizsla, try to play with her 19-month old daughter. She doesn’t have stairs at her house, so she had a great time crawling up and down ours. Cooper followed her up and down every time. I’m not sure if he was protecting her or just trying to keep track of whether she was getting close to his toys. The other dogs just pretty much ignored her.
I remember when my kids were little and my dad would babysit for me. We had one dog that would follow him from room to room when he was walking with the baby. She was sooooooo worried he would do something to my son!
So, I got to wondering – how do your dogs feel about babies?
Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
One thought on “Saturday Survey: Dogs & Babies”
We don’t have a baby but had a great-niece born 4 months ago. Many were worried how Gus,their BIG lab/mastiff?would react as he is very protective of his family. Not to worry,the first night their little one was home,Gus slept by the crib all night. Now he sits by her and “cleans” her mouth for her after each bite of cereal.
