Babies and Dogs …

07/17/2012

I think every baby should come with a dog. It’s a great partnership. Lucy (the dog) doesn’t even like Precious (the baby) and they still have a beautiful thing going. Precious is delighted by Lucy…watching her, chasing her, occasionally catching up fast enough to get a quick feel of her soft fur. Lucy gets more exercise these days, now that Precious is on the move. But the exercise is good because she’s always eating a lot more table food than she used to (which was hardly any). Lucy is actually a very picky eater, but Precious will eat anything. Lucy is quick to clean up Cheerios, bread, cheese or yogurt off the floor. If Precious drops blueberries, green beans, peas or carrots, however, we’ll have to pick those up ourselves. Lucy sits below the high chair and stares at the rug, waiting for a Cheerio to bounce and roll…
