One of the things I’m most curious about is how our dog Leela will react to the baby. She’s mostly lab, so I don’t worry about her being aggressive or resentful that we brought a new person home. She’s actually pretty good with our friends’ children, except for the fact that when they’re down on her level, she tries to lick them to death. She’s about two and a half, so she still has a lot of puppy energy in her, and my biggest fear is her trampling the baby by accident, followed by the fact that she loves the sound of her own voice, and barks at every moving thing imaginable.
Once he’s older though, I imagine them being the best of friends, and Oscar and I will just become the food suppliers.
My extremely talented sister-in-law snapped this shot of her a few weeks ago at our Fourth of July celebration. It captures her personality perfectly.
