I am not sure we'll remember - and I hope we don't because it may seem like such a silly thing to worry about. But...before you were born we were greatly worried that the dogs would have an adverse reaction. Especially Portia, she isn't exactly known for her love of children. Of course we have a backup plan, and a backup to the backup plan should the day come that we can no longer have her in the house. Please don't misunderstand - I love Portia - she was one of my first babies...but at the end of the day she is still a dog and for your safety I will make hard choices.
Anyway, back to present day. You were sitting on the couch with your father, well more specifically, he was holding you on his left side and Portia sat on the couch on his right. Lo and behold, you take notice of Portia and start to lean in towards her. It almost appeared as if you were reaching out to touch her. Ha, Portia's worst nightmare perhaps realized. You were practically crawling over your father's lap to get to her...luckily Paisley moved around some food in her bowl and so Portia immediately jumped down to investigate that. Nevertheless...a new obsession for you may have begun?
Let me just point out that a few weeks ago Portia wouldn't even be caught dead on the couch anywhere NEAR you. So the fact that she was sitting so close, and while you were wiggling around, is a miracle. I am very impressed. Maybe she has decided you are acceptable - but other children beware! xo Mommy
