One question we have been asked repeatedly is how the dogs are adjusting. We brought P home at around 1:00AM after he was born and needless the say, the dogs were a bit confused...
"Where have you been?"
"Why did Grammy and Grumps feed us and why was it so late?" and
"WHAT THE HELL IS THAT NOISE?"
Bubba was immediately curious and wanted to sniff, sniff, sniff. I figured this would be the case because he is our protector and every other child that has been in our house, he has been fascinated with and immediately goes for a big mouth kiss!
Vegas (the princess) was confused, annoyed, and just barked every time P made a noise. This was difficult at 1:00AM after being tired, sore, and overwhelmed. It was stressful and I was scared.
Bailey was scared to death. She had no idea what this thing was and why it was here. Get it away.
Six and a half weeks later however....Bubba is still just as curious and is thrilled that I will actually let him kiss P's tiny little fingers. Yes I let him...don't judge! Vegas has actually come to terms with P's existence and she actually sniffs him and kisses him and doesn't bark when he cries anymore...thank God. Bailey is coming around. She still jumps when I put P near her BUT she is a lot more curious and willing to give him a sniff and occasional kiss on the ear. She is coming around.
They still bark just as loud as they did when I was pregnant. They still go C-R-A-Z-Y when people come over and P isn't even phased. We are turning into one big happy family!
