A.............From that moment on she was his gaurdian, when he cried she came and got me. When I changed or fed him she was beside me, watching, I used to laugh she was making sure I did everything right..............Wishing you all the best with the new arrival and Dobe.
Widsom, clearly spoken from a great & loving Mama....Toby'shuman, I wouldn't expect any less family dedication, from you !!
- just like reading, about your life-long experiences / nice share 1982:
When I picked up my wife & 2 day old newborn baby (in front of city hospital)....while our 4 year ol Tanya (treated like our full time baby) was standing in the backseat of our family coupe [967 Beaumont car, 6 cylinder with 2 door hardtop, muscle car look].
RN nurse wheeled new proud MOM and son Andrew out to the vehicle and then she STOPPED, when I opened the side door...Tanya's nose peering out.
- she said, I am not putting the baby in there...LOL...I said, she is fine / and fully OB trained
So home we drove (as a new family), and because the new baby takes up so much of new parents time and fills the entire day, baby had its diapers changed on the end of the sofa...but not until Tanya was invited up, on the couch end and fully included in all day-2-day activities.
(to even lightly nose poke and lick human babies face, when & if she wanted)...thus limit much dober jealousy, which was key #1...to canine balance.
