Louie, our big Shi-Tzu, noticed we had a baby a few months ago and seems to have taken on the role of Baby’s Guard Dog without much hesitation. Dash is a bit of a ‘special’ dog and likes to take his time with things. He has refused to acknowledge Nixon until today, when I happened to notice that he was on guard duty instead of Lou.
I can’t believe I happened to snap these shots. If you’re not a dog person, you’re probably horrified and grossed out right now, perhaps getting all judgy about how I let my dogs lick my baby ……. whatev.
For those of you whose dogs are part of their family, doesn’t this little scene just melt your heart? Nix was giggling away, loving that Dash was close enough to pull hair….finally!
