After the initial jubilant reaction and excitement of having a baby settles down, you start wondering about the logistics. Whether you will co-sleep or sleep in separate rooms, breast feed or formula feed, use disposable diapers or cloth nappies. The list is endless. But among all these questions, there is a furry friend whom you worry about. And if you don’t, there are people who will make you feel that now your priorities should change.
When I was pregnant with my first, I got hints and direct advice over how having a dog around would be detrimental to my child’s health. But I chose to focus on how to get things managed rather than dreaming of giving my pet away. We just needed to find a way to get everyone into a comfortable zone. 3 years now and going strong, I have now realized how I worried about things that never happened. Growing up with pets has been the best thing that has happened to my kids.
If you are a dog lover like me, you would agree that dogs not only enrich our lives but make us happier and healthier.
Besides this they serve as mood boosters, stress relievers and are super entertaining!
It might not be an easy task to handle a baby and a dog at the same time. And yes, it isn't . But the benefits of having your little one grow up with a pet dog will make it all worth it.
At the end of the day, we all are responsible for the lives of whom we love. Our kids and our pets.
