good sport

Our dog Tyson is a good sport. He lets Maddie sit on him, and Charlotte grab his fur, and he makes a great "patient" for Dr. Maddie. Yesterday she got blankets and a pillow and toys for Tyson and then she got her tools (hammer and pliers) and started to work. She found a sticky label and used it as a band aid, and she even got him some mustard!! lol She wanted the ketchup too, but that was where I drew the line. Mustard okay, ketchup too much! She is such a funny little thing, and our dog is such a good boy. It amazes me that people convince themselves that they need to get rid of their pets when they have kids. We had a little bit of growling from Tyson when Maddie first started crawling, and we were worried, but with a little time and supervision everything worked itself out.....Maddie became one of the alphas in our house, and now Charlotte has as well! Good boy Tyson, I'm gonna give you an extra biscuit tonight!

Dogs are much better than cats at adjusting to kids, I think! It helps too that they dogs have a nice big house to escape to, poor Scout only has a little least it's bigger than our last one! Just still not big enough. Someday....

I can't wait to have dogs.... :)

I imagine that cats would be harder. They are unpredictable and do what they want, when they want. Dogs....well trained dogs like ours what they are told. I also think that people should at least give it their best effort to keep their animal children....if it doesn't work it doesn't work but at least there was an attempt! Dogs are fun, you'll like it!
