Thanks, that was a great story....another great topic that could be discussed....Animals and Children's relationships...it's really a remarkable
thing if you have a pet with the temperment to bond with children, lol, another great topic actually.....I have a cool story to share...
We resucued a young female dog from the animal shelter, shortly afterwards I became pregnant.....well...somehow this dog KNEW.....and she never wanted
to leave my side, she would lay her head in my lap, lol, and once the baby started to kick inside my womb Bonnie, the dog would kiss and lick my
tummy.....when we brought our new baby daughter home from the hospital, Bonnie became her second Mommy...lol...our male dog was more indifferent,
although he understood the baby was important to our family.
Bonnie would sleep every night next to her crib, come and alert me if the baby woke up even if she wasn't crying yet, she would jump in her play pen
and cuddle with her, Linnea, my daughter,would lay on her like a pillow and just kick back and drink her bottle, if Linnea dropped her toys/rattle
Bonnie would pick them up and give them back to her, and was fiercly protective, I never saw this dog become aggressive until one day a stranger tried
to get too close while she was in her stroller at the park ....she started to growl and made it perfectly clear not to get to close to our baby!
Bonnie died when Linnea was 8yrs old and they were the best of friends....sadly was also her first experience dealing with death, to this day that
dogs tags hang on our Christmas tree every year....oh geez...just thinking about this is getting me very chocked up.....
