Shelby is a big sister! Introducing little Vin!

Happy Furry Big Sister

I'm happy to report that we've come home from the hospital and Shelby is being an excellent big sister so far. While we were at the hospital, my parents came to visit, and we sent Vin's knit cap home with them so that Shelby could smell it. On Friday, the two met for the first time, and I snapped some photos.

Who's this dog?

And this is why they say "Never work with animals or kids."
This is Why You Shouldn't Work with Animals or Kids

There was non-stop tail wagging when she first met Vin, and whenever he cries, she comes running up to check on him. Let's just say, the first night, Shelby got up to check on Vin a LOT!

It's been a few days now, and she's been very good, so last night, we let Shelby thoroughly smell Vin, and sit next to him.

So far, so good. :)

What A nice Eurasian baby. Winnie, Let us know the challenges that comes with looking after a baby and a pug. I need to prepare myself too!

What kind of confinement are you following, Winnie? Asian (no bathing) or Western (drink lots of red wine)?

congrats! we're still going through our pugs-getting-to-know-baby period, and it's great!

pug+baby=cuteness goldmine.

my gizmo and gadget weren't quite as motherly as shelby. instead of checking on their sister, they hid under the bed either because they were afraid of ... or to just get away from the screaming!

good luck to you all!

Congratulations! You have a very beautiful little boy. Lots and lots of hair. They say heartburn is an indication that the baby will have lots of hair. Was that true for you? Was for me.

Congrats Shelby! Enjoy him while he's small. Soon he will be bigger than you and toddling around!

Congratulations to you! Shelby looks so cute next to her new brother. :)

What a handsome little dude. Great hair,too. Vin looks so content, and alert. Swaddling works wonders, doesn't it? Glad to hear that big sis Shelby is already helping out. How very cool that Vin has that cute puggy face to focus on as a welcome to the world.
Congratulations, you guys!

Congratulations to ALL! Pugs and Babies are wonderful together. Seeing friends Pugs and their babies and children together is what started my daughter and I on the trail of the Pugs in our lives, now up to 3 pugs.

What a handsome little man, and so big too!! You don't look like your a very big girl, you must have good "genes" and alot of strength to birth a big boy like that!! I wish lots of love and luck, cause now, the journey gets more interesting!!!
