Earlier in my pregnancy, I expressed some concern about how Texas will do with a baby in the house. I know that not many people believe me, but he is usually pretty laid back and loves to lay around wherever you are. He does get in those moods, though, where he runs around the house, and whips the house and whoever happens to be in it with his baseball bat tail.

Here is one of those days where he gave me complete confidence:

  1. Hi - I found you at the Sunday Social. I have five kids but I would like to tell you about my youngest child. My children are all adopted so my youngest is the only one I had from birth. When she was born we had two weimaraners who were nuts all the time. And once she was born we were nervous wrecks. We did everything we could to keep the dogs from her. One of our dogs was very persistent. He could open doors etc... After the first month or so (I have no idea how he would do it) he managed to get into the crib. He would not lay down or anything. He sat by her side all the time and did not sleep until she was awake. The first time it happened I freaked. But after a few times our daughter started having difficulties breathing (which ended up lasting for 9 months due to formula allergies). And our dog would start wailing as soon as she struggled. He was definitely her guardian angel. People would freak when they saw photos of Dusty sitting inches away from our little baby. But we were sure he felt our daughter was his baby. He never gave us a problem but he clearly was not going to let any harm come to her. Dogs are interesting. Similarly we had a dalmatian when my older two kids were little - one had diabetes. And she would freak whenever he was close to having a seizure. I don't know how they do it but they are great protectors in so many ways.
