A visit from Bear and Penny

Shelby's friend Bear came to visit today. After some raucus play around the house, both doggies proved themselves to be excellent beggars / scavengers.

Their first treat was half an egg. Steven had just returned from grocery shopping, and one of the eggs cracked when I tried to put it in the fridge. Our loss is the dogs' gain. We cooked it in the microwave, and Shelby and Bear each got half. (However Shelby finished hers first, and then went to "share" Bear's egg.)

Yummy eggYummy egg

The dogs went off to play, while I prepared vin's bottle. My friend Penny (Bear's person) does the honors of feeding the boy.

milk please

The presence of milk does not go unnoticed by the doggies. Shelby looks particularly interested in a taste, while Bear looks like he might be willing to settle for a lick of some baby toes.

My pug Mushu would do the same exact thing! Begging and trying to lick the baby. My sister was over and Mushu was trying to lick Vincent's toes! Your Vin is VERY adorable. DO you mind when Shelby licks Vin's toes?

Puggies and babies work best when raised together! My son was raised by pugs for his first 20 years...they taught him so much. I think he may have taught them something, too..though I was never sure....

HOw long is the maternity leave over there?

Yes, we let shelby lick vin's toes provided he doesn't mind (which he doesn't) however, we don't let her lick his hands since he's always putting them in his mouth.

As for maternity leave, it's typically 2-3 months out here.

Hi Winnie,

Do you still feed Shelby yogurt everyday? What type of yogurt does she eat, human grade? and how much? 1 tsp or 1 tasp twice/once a day?

This is such a cute blog. I'm pregnant with my first child, I'm due next month. I actually am worried about my 4 labrador's reactions to the baby, hopefully they'll just be curious and sweet like your dogs and not jealous and anxious. I like how your doggies co-exist well with the baby wanting to lick the milk off his toes.
