  • My older dog got very protective of me the first time I got pregnant. Never bit or snapped, but was definitley a little more aggresive. I was a little worried how she would react with the baby, but she is so attatched to that kid it isn't funny. She absolutley thinks DD belongs to her.... I guess I'm wondering if that is happening with your dog too? Sometimes older dogs get grumpy and set in thier ways too. Has he/she shown any aggression toward you or any other human? Could always ask the vet or see a animal behavioral person.

  • I swear they know... its crazy. She was acting goofy before I even started showing with this pregnancy. Dogs are so cool, lol.

  • I second BansheeQueen, I have 2 dogs, one is female and she's been sooo affectionate and protective since I've become pregnant.
