Ever since I
found out I was pregnant, thought about having children, I dreamt of a house where babies and pets played happily together. Come on… you’ve all seen those adorable YouTube videos! Nothing warms your heart and soul more than watching a baby and a puppy playing happily together (that, and of course chocolate).
Unfortunately, this dream of mine has not become reality. Shiloh has been my fur baby for sooooo long and she has had a very hard time adjusting that another baby has now entered my life. She has never done anything to hurt McKenna of course, but she has definitely shown some major signs of jealousy. It’s made me really sad.
I don’t even want to jinx it, but the last two weeks or so things seem to slooooowly be getting better. Maybe Shiloh overheard my phone call to a puppy discipline centre a couple weeks back, or maybe it’s that McKenna is just starting to learn that the pets like to be patted and not pulled, but the two of them have definitely had a few heartwarming moments as of late. Things are still far from ideal but I am hoping we are making progress towards that dream of mine, where my fur baby and my human baby not only coexist, but love on each other.
So now for my very own puppy and baby home video.. and here’s to hoping there are MANY more to come!
