I’m not going to lie, having kids has changed the relationship we have with our dogs.
Before babies, they were our babies and would be allowed to come into the front room to sit and snuggle with us. Sure the place was covered in dog hair but hey ho that’s life with a dog.
Post babies they’re not allowed through to the front room. Main reason for this is because of the dog hair issue. Our babies are rolling around in the floor and we don’t want them to be permanently inhaling dog hair.
Unfortunately this means the dogs don’t spend as much time with us as previously. As soon as Miss Mostyn starts settling upstairs they can start coming back through again in the evenings but that’s not going to be for another month at least.
We still love the dogs as much as ever and maybe we’re being too cautious with separating them and the girls. But like I say, it’s only because Miss Mostyn is still so small.
If I could go back, would I change anything? No I don’t think I would. The dogs are safe and warm and have plenty of food at least. Even though they don’t get the attention they deserve, it’s a temporary setback.
What do you think? Any tips?
