Vin spent most of his 4th week of life crying his face off. At first, I was concerned about Shelby adapting to all the crying. Steven and I certainly don't find any comfort in hearing a crying baby, would Shelby get annoyed?


The crying doesn't seem to bother Shelby. She used to check on Vin everytime he made a peep, but after this week of constant baby wailing, she seems to have adapted, and it doesn't bother her at all. She even sleeps through the nightly 2am cryfest-feeding-diaper changing.

In fact, as I look at this photo, I am overwhelmed by what a good girl she seems to be, especially in comparison to her screaming little bro.

Shelby can tell when the crying means something is wrong and when it is just the normal stuff. Shelby is obviously a very perceptive and sensitive pug and has gotten to know here little brother very well. That's why she can ingnore the routine crying without being distressed. If something were wrong, she would be on high alert and let you know. Good girl Shelby, you are an awesome big sister!

Shelby is amazing...she is not frazzled by little Vin's crying...perhaps Vin will become soothed by Shelby's presence and he will stop to observe Shelby and forget about what he was crying for...Mom and Grandma are close by to check on Vin...
keep up the good work Shelby!!!

I have to say that I love those chairs!

At least Shelby hasn't learned to howl along with Vin ;)
