Dogs and Babies

Everyone in this house is full of skepticism.

I allow limited interaction, but always when it's dog --> baby, never baby --> dog. Both dogs dislike when even adults touch them while they're sleeping, so that's something I'm going to watch like a hawk as baby becomes mobile.

Zelda isn't terribly interested. It's Sammy who follows me and baby from room to room, laying down within three feet whenever we pause. If baby is within reach, she creeps towards her and if not corrected would snuffle and lick and nuzzle her endlessly.

When our daughter was born I remember our dog at the time trying so hard to get her to move around like the other neighborhood kids. I'm sure she was convinced what we had should be returned.
