When the time comes to bring a baby in their home, a lot of dog owners have a hard time deciding whether or not their canine will get along with the new member of the family. That is one of the big reasons why so many dogs end up in shelters across the country.
It is pretty safe to say that your canine companion is well aware that it is your first baby, so when a new, human baby comes to the scene, they will feel the shift in routine. Animal behaviorists recommend that you ease up on your pet pal in the months prior to bringing your child home, so that when the new member arrives, your dog will know that this creature is also part of the pack, worthy of love and respect.
Then, there are people who do what we think is the best idea ever. They bring two babies into their home - their own baby and a tiny puppy! Willow is only a few month old, but she already has a best bud in this Boston Terrier pup; or should we say, the pup has found a littermate in Willow. The adorable duo loves cuddling in the baby rocker and we love to melt watching them.
Dogs are the best friend any kid can have, not just because of the playtime and the endless amount of love they have to share, but also because they can teach kids some invaluable lessons in life.
