A friend of mine’s granddaughter was just bitten by the family’s chocolate lab. The baby was trying to grab her toy back from the dog.
While I think this picture is adorable, I don’t think Chase is sharing a pillow with Caleb because he loves him. Don’t get me wrong – Chase is an extremely tolerant dog. He let our six year old crawl all over him, shoot him with nerf balls and scream at him. However, I think Chase is more concerned about using the pillow and getting close to me than he is about hanging out with the baby. Some of the reasons I think this:
- Chase uses the pillow when Caleb isn’t there.
- Chase is always trying to climb into my lap, baby or no baby.
So as good as Chase has been with kids in the past, I think there’s a much better chance he’s jealous of the baby than he loves the baby, so I don’t leave them alone together.
