Default My dog is something else

Well, my Jack Wishbone, loves my baby. He loves to leave his toys near the baby so she can play with them all the time. Yeah that's a yuck, but he loves her and that's his way of showing her. The other night he left his duck on the floor and the baby went to get it. I Said to my Dog "Wishbone get your duck and be gental with the baby" He went over to the baby and pulled it from her so gently and brought it to me. My Hubby was just laughing, he can;t belive my dog understood that and does everything I ask him. I just think he is a great dog and smart and my best buddy

And by letting your baby near a dog, you lessen the chance of her developing allergies later in life!

If the hack order is clear, the dog usually accepts a baby, cares about it and protects it, but one has to be vigilante, even when the hack order is clear the dog might challenge the baby's or child's position above him in the order.

I am the pack leader and always keep an eye on both jacks .Both dogs turn belly side up for the Baby. It know it took some months to prepair my dogs for the baby. From limiting them to places only the the human could go to not freaking out if the dog aproches the baby. It didn't take them to long to see the baby as a back leader Both Jack are great but the chi/dautsun mix we have is bad. She came with us 2 1/2 years ago. My father in laws dog. I tried to teach her but she is a one person dog and only likes my Hubby. Tomorrow we will put her down. She tried to bite the baby while I was at work. Hubby said it was time and I am glad he said it not me cause it is his dog. When he sent her outside she tried to bite Wishbone too. She is 16 years old and has suffered some strokes, we think she is just too old now and is loosing her marbles. even if she did not let me get close to her and tried to bite me many times. I feel sad. I just hope One of my other co-workers will but her down instead of me

Your dog is... not your dog? What an interesting paradox! :P

It was hard but one of my co-workers did it with us in the room.
It was not pain both her and my 10 year old chow have meds to control there pain. She was just old and seemed to have some version of k-9 Alzheimers or something. She started to bark at anything and was sometimes wanting for me to touch her, she never got near me, not even for food. Well she is in a better place now.

That's a good story - especially a dog who knows how to share.

The first thing my grandma's dog used to do when he went over to other dogs' places was to pee on their toys.
