DS is very close to being 23 months old and he is an only child. He has paly dates now and then but not offten. There aren't a lot of children around here his age. He's going to be going to the colleges daycare center this fall but it's a while away.
So our dog, a 12 year old German Shorthair named Kaiser, is his bf. Since DS was a few months old he has loved this dog. He started panting like a dog when he was 4 months old. He hides in places the dog does. He puts snacks and things on the floor so he can eat them with only his mouth. He picks up toys with his mouth and carries them around shaking them like a dog.
He won't go outside, read a book with out the dog , and even has tried to get the dog in the bath tub with him. The dog loves him too. He lets DS run cars and trucks all over him. Snuggles on the floor with him and trys to sleep in DS's car bed with him. If someone he doesn't know comes by the fence when DS is outside the dog puts himself between them and DS. He used to try for everyones attention. No matter who they were.
Just as I was typeing this DS came in with water all over his face. i asked him to show me where he was playing in the water and he showed me the dog bowl. He won't eat the dogs food though. But he does share everythign eats with the dog.
I think most of this is cute but I wonder if having a dog as his best friend may harm him socially??
