Long Dogs Return
Here are my sweet boys! They’ve been so good since the baby arrived. The dynamic turned out a little differently than we expected though. We thought Oscar wouldn’t care anything about the baby…just go on with life, business as usual. And that Tucker would be protective. Boy, were we wrong! It’s the complete opposite.
Oscar is ever the guardian. We had to take it slow with him at first. He tried to treat the baby like a puppy. He still tries to be a good mama dog. Ha! I think he and E must have formed an early bond because Oscar would sleep around my baby bump all the time. Oscar never misses a meal, but when we first got home, he didn’t eat or play for the first few days. So worried…poor little guy. He’s back to normal now, but he still likes to keep an eye on things. Tucker could care less about the new addition to the family. He’s always been cat-like in that he only wants love on his terms.
I was worried when we first brought the baby home and the dogs started barking. We don’t really try to keep our noise level down, but this instance was rather loud and abrupt. E never even flinched. I think he got used to his puppies before he was born.
