At some point in the future I will introduce you properly to the family mascot; our resident pooch.
He is a disloyal, food stealing, baby waking, neighbour visiting, smelly trip hazard… but for some reason we keep him around.
|Baby #1, ignoring the dog|
The dog came to live with us a year or so before the toddler was born. As a baby, she was fairly disinterested in him, as he was in her (with the obvious exception of meal times). Since he could first drag himself across the carpet aged around five months however, my second, much more mobile, baby has made it his mission to get to the dog and attempt to poke, torment or grab him. Obviously, I try to discourage this as much as possible. The dog is tolerant, but when all is said and done, he is still a dog.
