My dog REALLY, really annoys me! Does this mean I'll be an impatient mother?

  • being patient is a choice. you choose how to react, no matter how you may internalize stress or annoyances. only YOU can decide not to be patient, or to become reactive and angry. being annoyed with a pet does not mean that you will be impatient with your infant. like I said, you DECIDE to react that way.

  • Thanks that is so reassuring! I really love children, but I just may not be much of a dog person!

  • naaa.....children and animals are'll have a bond with your baby that is so much different than your pet.

  • No!

    The relationship between a person and a dog.. and a person and a baby is completely different... We're engineered biologically to want to take care of a baby and respond to the cues...

  • Don't be silly. One doesn't have anything to do with the other. Some things or dogs in this case just don't mesh well with you. You can't love everything.
